From Athenaeum reports

The seventh annual soundON Festival of Modern Music will take place Jan. 9-12 at the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library in La Jolla, bringing together an international roster of composers and performers for a four-day exploration of contemporary chamber music.

Scheduled to perform are San Diego New Music’s ensemble-in-residence NOISE, San Diego’s modern choral ensemble Sacra Profana, guest artists soprano Alice Teyssier, and the McAllister-Keller Guitar Duo.

First heard at last year’s soundOn festival, two new recordings will be celebrated at the festival — Morris Palter’s solo double-LP “This Place/Our Body,” and Matthew Burtner’s CD “NOISE Plays Burtner!”

San Diego New Music is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the public performance of notated music of the highest integrity and artistic caliber from the 20th and 21st centuries. Its resident performing ensemble is NOISE.
