The Rattlestick New Music Series is committed to presenting small ensemble music to new audiences. Composers and improvisers come together to create new music drawing on many diverse traditions. From twentieth and twenty-first century European music and the American experimental impulse that confronts and interrogates convention to what some call sound-based composition and electro-acoustic improvisation. This process of bringing together different composers, musicians and audiences leads to a deeper understanding of our own group psychology and its influence on the creative product.
