Zeena Parkins – Ekstasis I (Season 2)
Zeena Parkins – Lace_Mvt IV

The acclaimed electro-acoustic composer and harpist Zeena Parkins returns to Roulette to present a concert in two parts.

Ekstasis I (Season 2) marks the beginning of a series of public presentations inspired by the work of Bay Area artist Jay DeFeo. For this performance Megan Schubert (voice/objects) joins Parkins (electric harp, bells + bowls/environment sounds, fixed and dislodged media), to navigate a topography of erasure by accumulation, revealing clues of the Sisyphean tasks of a working artist: layered, carved, scraped, incised, molded: the between to be collapsed.

“…Hopefully, even the most literal works transcend the definition of the objects from which they are derived.” — Jay DeFeo

Parkins returns to Roulette with her trio Green Dome: Ryan Sawyer (drums, feedback) and Ryan Ross Smith (piano/electronics/feedback) Parkins (acoustic harp/objects/feedback) with Lace_Mvt IV. In the piece, eight lace pieces serve as scores for this new addition to LACE, a long-term project that started in 2008.

“Lace exposes the knot and loop as central refrains, congealing time in the mise en abyme of thread…transposing the non-transposable.” — Jenn Joy

The broadcast will take place at 8pm Eastern / 5pm Pacific.
