Roger Reynolds exclusively.


This Sanctuary performance represents the opening concert of a unique,
year-long collaboration between the Contemporary Music Forum and the
Embassy of France, promoting new American and French music. A
consortium of venues in the Washington area are participating in these
events, including The National Gallery of Art, La Maison Française,  the
Corcoran Gallery of Art and the Library of Congress.

Sanctuary is a co-commission by red fish blue fish percussion
ensemble, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Contemporary Music
Forum, and the Randy Hostetler Living Room Fund.











We would like to thank the IDMI Laboratory, CIRMMT, McGill University
(Joseph Malloch, Mark Marshall and Marcelo M. Wanderley) for
technical suggestions on early prototypes of the gesture sensing systems
used in Sanctuary I: Chatter/Clatter.



Contemporary Music Forum
The Contemporary Music Forum has been presenting concerts of new
music to Washington audiences for 34 years. VERGE ensemble, the
performance group of cmf, is the new music ensemble in residence at
the Corcoran Gallery of Art.

Throughout its existence, cmf has pioneered the performance of works
involving art and technology, and supported music by American women
composers and Native American composers. This February, VERGE
ensemble looks forward to presenting a special concert of
African-American composers at the Corcoran Gallery.

This past spring, cmf joined Ensemble Aleph at Theatre Dunois in Paris
in May of 2007 for the festival de musique américaine to present four
concerts of American music.

cmf recently performed an all John Cage concert at the National
Gallery in conjunction with the Gallery's Jasper Johns exhibit as part of
their 62nd American Music Festival. Future performances at the Gallery
include a special concert on December 7, 2008 to celebrate the
centennial of American composer Elliott Carter.
