Posted on: June 1, 2018

“The inaugural Re:Sound New Music Festival, organized by the recently formed Cleveland Uncommon Sound Project (CUSP), rolls out in Cleveland, Ohio, June 7-10, 2018,” write Arlene and Larry Dunn on Wednesday (5/30) at icareifyoulisten.com. “CUSP is the brainchild of saxophonist and educator Noa Even and cellist and musicologist Sophie Benn. Q: How did Cleveland Uncommon Sound Project come to be? Noa: In July 2016, Sophie Benn contacted me about … boosting the new music scene in Cleveland…. I had been considering organizing a new music festival. Q: How does Re:Sound fit into the overall CUSP mission? Noa: A major part of our mission is bringing people together—both performers and audiences—for conversation, collaboration, and community around new and experimental music.… Q: How did you go about putting [Re:Sound] together? Noa: I was optimistic that we’d receive a decent number of excellent proposals, but I wasn’t expecting over 100!… Q: Can you give us a preview of some of the music we’re going to hear at Re:Sound? Noa: Detroit-based Joo Won Park will be doing a set with found objects and live electronic processing…. Other acts include an improvising harpist, saxophone and electronics, solo flute, solo cello, string quartet.”
