From Cued Up at Q2: “David Borden at Brooklyn’s Darmstadt Institute”

Cued Up On Q2 streams Sundays at 2PM on Q2; encores Tuesdays at 8PM and Thursdays at 4PM on Q2

“Thanks to the Brooklyn-based experimental venue ISSUE Project Room and its Darmstadt Institute: Classics of the Avant-Garde series, Cued Up unearths some delights from past and present this Sunday at 2 p.m.: works by Phoenix-based composer Jacob Adler, Philip Glass, Steve Reich and David Borden with his pioneering electronic group, Mother Mallard’s Portable Masterpiece Company.

Claiming the status as one the world’s first synthesizer ensembles, Mother Mallard (formed in 1969) came about through Borden’s relationship with Dr. Robert Moog, who taught the composer to use his various synthesizers and eventually gave him carte blanche access to the famed electronic instruments. Borden added a few more musicians to the Mother Mallard lineup and started performing his own minimalist-inspired works, along with pieces by stalwarts like Terry Riley, Reich and Glass. From this concert, recorded June 29, 2011, you’ll hear Borden’s Continuing Story or Counterpoint, Part 7 & 8.”

This session of Cued Up is hosted by Amnon Freidlin
