In “Machines,” The Guidonian Hand, Oni Buchanan, and Duo Orfeo perform in a triple-bill collaboration with kinetic sculptor Arthur Ganson whose works will be present on stage, in shadow, and in film.  Matching the delicate workings and profound absurdities of Ganson’s machines to their repertoire, the performers create an evening of uncanny correspondences and unexpected trajectories.  Boston-based Duo Orfeo performs their own transcriptions for classical and electric guitar with a breezy mix of warmth and precision, brought to light by their incredible performances of Reich, Satie, Poulenc, and the world premiere of their arrangements of the music of Arvo Pärt for electric guitar duo.  Concert pianist Oni Buchanan, also Boston-based, brings careful mastery to the work of contemporary New York composer Annie Gosfield, the piano-and-tape work of Mei-Fang Lin, and the post-tonal dissonant hybrids of Cindy Cox.  And the New York City trombone quartet Guidonian Hand presents the grand finale, showcasing stunning commissions from composers Eve Beglarian, Galen Brown, Michael Gordon, and Jeremy Howard Beck.
