Todd Sickafoose's Tiny Resistors
It’s been a minute since we've heard from the bassist-composer's mid-sized ensemble. But he's been spending his time wisely. Chamber Music America commissioned "Bear Proof," which the Cali-grown Sickafoose describes as a "wordless portrait of booms, busts, prospects & ruin in our golden state." He might nod to a couple pieces from the suite at this Gowanus hit, but much of the show will feature the fascinating Rubik’s cubes that have become the bandleader's trademark. Zig-zag melodies and pan-textural forays lunge for the heart in his work, and his best charts have a way of making mathy notions sound sentimental.
