Brooklyn's Ashcan Orchestra has been the voice of composer/tinkerer/packrat P. Spadine, a revolving performance ensemble, and a growing collection of homemade and traditional instruments, since 2007. At Wesleyan, the ensemble will make their Connecticut debut with a collection of works for handbells, water glasses, musical saw, slide whistle organ, automated carillon, violin, toy piano, harp, percussion, and voice. Interspersed with the ensemble pieces will be a set of interludes for solo performer, presented together for the first time.
