The altered sound of a wine glass inspired Sayaka Yabuki’s latest piece, 'Water and Wine.' The composition, which combines a chamber ensemble with live looping, has its world premiere January 15 as part of New Music Works’ first Night of the Emerging Composers at UC Santa Cruz’s Music Center Recital Hall. Also on the program are the world premieres of Remy Le Boeuf's 'The Third Elegy' and Stan Poplin's 'Detour' (with guest artist Lori Rivera), along with Noah Meites' 'Bioskop.'

The four movements of 'Water and Wine' take the listener on a 15-minute journey through liquid sound — from the frozen essence of Movement I to the boiling turbulence of the last movement — using violin, theremin, musical glasses, vibraphone, double bass, trumpet, percussion and looping.

'It's very much a performance-based piece in that a lot of what you're going to hear is going to happen with a lot of improvisational input from the chamber ensemble players,' said Yabuki. 'It's going to be really exciting to see what comes up from that collaboration.'

New Music Work's Night of the Emerging Composers takes place 7:30 p.m. Friday, January 15, at the UC Santa Cruz Music Center Recital Hall, 1156 High Street, Santa Cruz. Tickets cost $12.50 to $23.50 and are available at or by calling (831) 459-2159.
