Mark Barden’s music understands sound as a fundamentally physical phenomenon. By emphasizing the violence of sound-making-with all its gripping, striking, and scraping-he invites the audience not just to listen, but to feel their own bodies listening and engaging with sound and, vicariously, with the musicians‘ bodies as their muscles and breath vibrate the air. Recent works marry virtuosic execution with noise-based sonic material, striving for an inward-turned complexity that, like microscopic views of cells or atoms, is both life-affirming and dizzying in detail.
