    Music at the Anthology’s (MATA) mission is to present, support, and commission the music of early career composers, regardless of their stylistic views or aesthetic inclinations. Founded by Philip Glass, Eleonor Sandresky, and Lisa Bielawa in 1996 as a way to address the lack of presentation opportunities for unaffiliated composers, MATA has since developed into the world’s most sought-after performance opportunity for young and emerging composers: for its 2017 Festival, MATA received the music of 1159 composers, from 72 countries.

    MATA presents an internationally-recognized festival, now celebrating its twentieth anniversary, each spring in New York City of new music by early career composers selected from a free global call for submissions; MATA Presents, an acclaimed series of occasional concerts held at venues throughout New York, now in its eleventh season; and MATA Jr., currently entering its third season: an evening of music by pre-college composers, mentored by emerging composers, and performed by an ensemble of their peers.

    In addition to these regular offerings, over the years MATA has presented numerous other events and activities open to the general public, included among them: public sound art installations, (2003, 2008-10, 2015); lectures and panel discussions (2002-04, 2007-09); workshops related to the business of composing (2011-present); a “Composer’s School” (2014-15); public art events (Composer’s Petting Zoo, 2005; Super Critical Mass’s Swelter, 2011; David Bird’s Fields, 2014); Interactive apps (MATA Walk With Me, 2015); composer reading sessions (2002-04, 2013-14); and showcases (MATA at the Atlantic, 2015).

    MATA’s festivals and events are critically acclaimed and broadly respected: The New Yorker has hailed MATA as “the most exciting showcase for outstanding young composers from around the world.” The New York Times has called it “nondogmatic, even antidogmatic;” The Wall Street Journal said that it “tells us a lot about how composers are thinking now.” Composers that have been presented by MATA early in their careers include future Rome, Alpert, Takemitsu, Siemens, and Pulitzer Prize-winners, Guggenheim Fellows, and MacArthur “Geniuses.” In 2010 MATA was awarded ASCAP’s prestigious Aaron Copland award in recognition of its work.

    From MATA: Coming Events 

    MATA

    MATA Festival

    A Room of One’s Own: Nadia Botello’s Sono / Aqua

    1
    On Saturday evening, April 21, MATA’s 20th Anniversary Festival will come to a spectacular close with an unmissable new music event at Tribeca’s Imagine Swimming. A Room of One’s Own: Nadia Botello’s Sono/Aqua, part of MATA’s unique and vital initiative devoted to female-identifying composer-performers, will be a truly immersive event. The audience, having passed through stages of listening from the audible to the vibrational, will be invited to enter a sonified pool to become one with sound: generating, altering, and ultimately becoming sound incarnate.

    Imagine Swimming
    40 Harrison St., New York

    6:30pm – 9:30pm

    $25
    Tickets will allow entry to the space for the duration of the event and for timed entry to the pool itself

    Tickets Available

    Visitors will be required to sign a waiver in order to enter the pool.

    Contemporaneous: Stop Motion
    1

    On Saturday, April 14th, Contemporaneous brings the 20th MATA Festival’s mainstage series to a close with a celebration of the future directions of new music, from the theatrical fantasy of Lasse D. Hansen’s (Denmark) Face the Music, the choreographic precision of Andreas Eduardo Frank’s (Germany/Switzerland) Samouraï Progressif, the recontextualized folk music of David Kirkland Garner’s (USA) DwnByThRckyMntns to the placid beauty of William Dougherty’s (USA) a stillness of zero sensation. The evening also features the world premiere of a new arrangement of MATA alumna Jennifer Higdon’s (USA) (MATA 1998) DASH, as well as a newly-commissioned work by Jenna Lyle (USA), whose choreography combines performers gestures and interactions with sound-emitting fans.

    MATA’s Greatest Hits
    7
    Past meets present on Friday, April 13th as the 20th MATA Festival presents MATA’s Greatest Hits. The evening will celebrate the festival’s most meaningful pieces, selected by some of those who have shaped MATA’s 20-year history, including Du Yun (artistic director, 2015-2018), Yotam Haber (artistic director, 2011-2015), Missy Mazzoli (executive director, 2007-2010), David T. Little (executive director, 2010-2012) and Lisa Bielawa and Eleonor Sandresky (founders and directors, 1998-2005). The evening will center around a reconstruction, featuring Sandbox Percussion, of experimental composer Randy Hostetler’s P(l)aces, a work which received its world premiere in MATA’s inaugural season, following the composer’s premature death. Also on the program Bolivian composer Carlos Gutierrez Quiroga’s (MATA 2015) Jintili, will be performed by Face the Music together with members of La Paz’s Orquiestra Experimental de Instrumentos Nativos (OEIN). The program will also feature encores of Australian/Dutch composer Kate Moore’s (MATA 2008) hauntingly beautiful Sensitive Spot, performed by Vicky Chow and Eric Wubbels’s (MATA 2012) vibrantly compelling Viola Quartet (IJVER).
