Spores review in SF Classical Voice

As Adams pointed out from the stage, the role of improvisation, which once played an important role in classical music, has been all but replaced by exact notation. That is not the case for composer and bassoon virtuoso Katherine Young. Her LA Phil commission Spores was initially composed in 2017, its premiere delayed until Tuesday, first by illness, then by the pandemic.
If there is such a thing as a rock-star electric bassoonist, it would have to be Young. “She’s got more foot pedals than Jimi Hendrix,” Adams quipped.

Young’s title is a reference to the reproductive units produced by mushrooms, some of which have managed to migrate around the globe. Another influence, Young said, was early electronic-music compositions. It makes for a fascinating blend — airborne “spores” in the form of electronics and phasing, plus extended sections of improvisation in which musicians are instructed to listen to what other musicians are playing and then riff on it.

Composed for electronic and acoustic bassoon, assorted brass, winds, strings, and a battery of percussion, including a pair of triangles, the piece is by turns as dense as molasses, as light as air (with the musicians encouraged to vocalize their breath), and as freewheeling as a trip down the open highway.

boundarymind is a long-distance collaboration by Linda Jankowska and Katherine Young. The electroacoustic sound piece and aggregating multi-media installation explores and transgresses the geographical, cultural, psychological, and musical boundaries that impact how we share—and modulate—our past, present, and future selves through collection and interaction with our material world. Every-day objects with sentimental meaning and memory-evoking power have been shared—recorded and remixed, filmed and animated, collected and woven into a three-dimensional tapestry. The project premiered in June 2022 in Chicago at 6018 North as a site-specific multi-room installation, with the support of Experimental Sound Studio.

For ame, Katie and Linda will rework the piece to suit the space and hopefully discover new dimension to boundarymind’s expression. The community recording events are a way of sharing the process of listening to memorable objects with other people. The audience is invited to contribute their sounds and stories to boundarymind’s sound archive with the intention of weaving them into future live iterations of the piece as a shared meaning-making practice.
