San Diego New Music and the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library present the 2023 soundON Festival, exploring cutting-edge contemporary music from around the world, including rising international voices Yu Kuwabara (Japan), Adrian Demoč (Slovakia), Alyssa Aska (Austria), and D. Edward Davis (United States). Entitled Spolia, this year’s festival explores the traces of the past recast into unique new expressions, just as ancient artifacts are reincorporated into newer architecture to become spolia. Inspired by Katherine Balch’s Musica Spolia, this theme threads through works including Yu Kuwabara’s Five Images-In nomine and Adam Greene’s Memos, and works incorporating recorded sound fragments, like D. Edward Davis’s broad call and Kay He’s On the Rime of the Fading Forest.
