OUTER EAR: Fonema Consort

At their OE performance, Fonema Consort will celebrate the release of their debut record, Pasos en otra calle, which compiles vocal and instrumental works by Costa Rican composers Pablo Santiago Chin and Mauricio Pauly. Fonema's musicologist in residence Etha Willimas writes: "the music by Mauricio Pauly and Pablo Chin collected on Fonema Consort's debut recording explores the boundaries of form—where structures are endangered by the very tensions that sustain them—and of meaning—where words verge on pure sound and where musical sound is itself loosed from its conventional moorings." Selections from the CD and other works will be performed.

Pasos en otra calle was funded in part by the “Dotación Musical” Grant from the Costa Rican Association of Musical Authors (ACAM).
