Null Point 11 featuring the Gyre Ensemble


This concert was originally scheduled for April 27. This is the new date.

A 'gyre' is a spiral or a vortex. In our ensemble we find this is an accurate way to describe what happens to sound as it is transferred between body-wind (Saxophone), machine-wind (Accordion) and cloud (percussion). Our purpose as a group is to develop new pieces and concepts for this unfrequented instrumentation. Our goal as humans who each come from different parts of the world—Germany, Spain, United States—is to collaborate and engage with composers and audiences in all of these regions. While we find ourselves in Basel at the time, we like to think of Gyre Ensemble as being transitory and baseless with possibilities stemming in every direction.

Stephanie Rohlfs
Put One Over


Rohlfs' work springboards from a clean surface appearance and concise formal gestures into a hybridized set of works that make the artist seem part minimalist, part colorist, part humorist. Rohlfs' sculptural gestures are so adroitly specific and contained that each element—a field of color, a drooping form, a slab of shelving—takes on more imminent and emphatic articulation ...
