Quentin Tolimieri / Eric Wong – Music of Erasure

Quentin Tolimieri / Eric Wong – Music of Erasure

The music of Tolimieri/Wong is a music of erasure. Specifically, they are attempting to remove various syntactical structures from their work, for example melody, harmony, gesture, and formal development. The impetus for this removal is a desire to evade the historical models that these syntactical structures force upon the listener and that serve, in a sense, to obscure the “sound-in-and-of-itself” (if such a thing exists) of the sonic object. The results of this removal is a music that is extremely minimal and reduced, closer to a kind of sound sculpture than to traditional concert music.

Tolimieri/Wong consists of pianist Quentin Tolimieri and electric guitarist Eric Wong, both of whom, in the context of this project, work with digital synthesis as well. Their intention with this project is to continue to develop and deepen their particular aesthetic and to present the results of this research in this concert.
