We have the pleasure of welcoming US based ensemble Red Desert for our July LeHum, this clarinet and percussion duo will play an evening of sounds floating between lines of modernity: birds, lovers, gongs, war drums, waves, sleeping, baseball and ancient lakes. We’ll hear among the most influential voices of the last sixty years in music, including Earle Brown, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Michael Pisaro, Christian Wolff and more.
