  • A Question of Survival
  • Genre: Electroacoustic music, Spoken Word
  • Duration: 30 min
  • A Question of Survival is a work in progress that Baker and La Berge developed over a period of 8 months. They based the structure and text on Louise Erdrich's The Plague of Doves, a novel that
    revolves around an act of racism that took place in the early 20th century and includes a plethora of subplots that still seem so relevant today. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Plague_of_Doves

    After reading the novel and delving into the themes that Erdrich uses in most of her books, they found a common aesthetic ground to build a performance set which functions as a piece.
    Their musical material is made of flexible guided improvisations that change according to their emotional and aesthetic responses to time and place and audience.
    This version was recorded at a performance at Splendor Amsterdam on 18 March and edited slightly to make it 30' long.
    During this most current collaboration Baker and La Berge found, within their growing and changing assemblage of instruments, new combinations, and new sounds for their ever-continuing duo project.

    Electric guitar, theremin, Ableton Live
    Flute, Kyma, ContinuuMini
