Composer Tristan Gianola leads a collection of New Orleans composers to present new compositions for string quartet in the temple of Alombrados Oasis O.T.O, performing two shows in one night.
The string quartet has been a standard template for composition for centuries, providing composers with rich sonic possibilities for their compositional voices. It is now 2019, and we will see how modern times translate to one of music’s most tradition ensembles for a fresh sonic palette, with some of the composers performing their music on their instruments with the quartet.
The Events’s featured composers are Ben Stonaker, Tristan Gianola, Noelle Tannon, Nick Benoit, David R. Polk and. Emily Fredrickson. The string quartet features Gabrielle Fischler, Fanny Friadt, David Thom Jr. and Joshua Sierra.
About Tristan Gianola
With guitarist and composer Tristan Gianola, there is always music to be made. Gianola stands on his own as a classically trained composer and conductor raised on rock n’ roll, with an experimental mind driven by meticulous standards, DIY attitude, distaste for cliches and the neurotic desire for something new.
He can be found leading multiple bands of variant original music, ranging from Guitar is Dead’s fiery punk-jazz shredding to Pink Lion’s serene electro-chamber music. From dancing around a busy sideman schedule as a prolific guitarist, producing a never-ending list of new projects, conducting classically influenced ensembles, to getting trapped in the studio for days; always looking ahead to new sounds and leaving a monumental trail of musical conquests behind.
Nicknamed “Maestro” by his colleagues, Gianola is a restless force in music. He currently operates out of New Orleans, after relocating there from his hometown Seattle in 2016.
