Description:
The Moss Arts Center at Virginia Tech presents An Evening with Amy X Neuburg in The Cube on Friday, April 5, 2019 and Saturday, April 6, 2019 starting at 7:30 pm each night.

Culminating her week-long residency in the Moss Arts Center’s Cube, Amy X Neuburg will present a new poetry-based work designed exclusively for the Cube’s unique spatial audio environment, as well as multi-channel reworkings of some of her solo repertoire and a gesture-controlled collaboration with Eric Lyon, associate professor of music technology and composition in Virginia Tech’s School of Performing Arts.

Amy X Neuburg has been developing her unique brand of irreverently genre-crossing works for voice, live electronics, and small and large ensembles for over 30 years. One of the earliest performers to work with live digital looping, she is known for her innovative looping style using electronic percussion, as well as her four-octave vocal range and colorful lyrics. Neuburg has presented her solo “avant-cabaret” songs at such diverse venues as the Other Minds and Bang on a Can new music festivals, the Berlin International Poetry Festival, jazz festivals in New Zealand, the Warsaw Philharmonic Hall, and colleges, rock clubs, and concert halls throughout the U.S. and abroad.

As composer, commissions for voices and chamber ensembles — often with electronics — include Paul Dresher ensemble, San Francisco Chamber Orchestra, Robin Cox Ensemble, Present Music, Solstice vocal ensemble, Pacific Mozart Ensemble chorus, Sqwonk, and Del Sol String Quartet. Her acclaimed song cycle The Secret Language of Subways for voice, cello trio and electronics has played at Yerba Buena Center, the San Francisco Symphony After Hours, and the Los Angeles Philharmonic Left Coast Festival. She has also composed extensively for theater, visual media and modern dance.

A classically trained vocalist, Amy has been featured in contemporary operas and recordings including works by Robert Ashley, Culture Clash and Guillermo Galindo.

Amy received degrees in linguistics and voice from Oberlin College and Conservatory and an MFA in electronic music from Mills College. Her many grants and honors include Arts International, the Gerbode Foundation, Meet the Composer, The U.S. Embassy New Zealand, SF Friends of Chamber Music, and the Alpert/Ucross prize.
