Great Noise Ensemble will perform Robert Paterson's "Looney Tunes" as part of A New America Arts Festival this year. "Looney Tunes" (2006-07) is divided into four movements and uses well-known cartoon characters as a musical influence. The first movement, Taz, is inspired by the Tasmanian Devil character; the second movement, Foghorn Leghorn, is inspired by this character’s loud, vocal disposition. The third movement, Tweety Bird, provides contrast with a somewhat high tessitura and includes prominent parts for piccolo, violin, xylophone and alto sax.
