From ancient folk traditions to modern club music, Origin/Outcome is a celebration of the hot-blooded human vernacular – the music to which we dance, eat, grieve and revel – by “powerful [new music] advocate” (The New York Times) Olga Bell. With a range as wide as working with Dawn Upshaw and Das Racist suggests, composer/performer Bell (Dirty Projectors) unfolds a two-part evening of compelling new sounds featuring Twin Cities- and Brooklyn-based musicians (including deVon Gray and Grey McMurray) and dazzling projections by video artist Alejandro Crawford (MGMT). The evening opens with the world premiere of Bell’s nine-movement song cycle Krai, a richly-imagined sonic love letter to her Russian homeland. The night also contains the debut of Nothankyou, Bell’s cross-Atlantic partnership with British musician Tom Vek (“a marvelous new pop star in the classical mold” – The Guardian) whose self-coined “beat-rock” emphasizes angular compositions that groove. Respected vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Angel Deradoorian (former member of Dirty Projectors) contributes throughout.
