Experience Pasadena’s MUSE/IQUE: Dramatically Different Musical Performances

Published on Oct 24, 2020

In MUSE/IQUE’s latest “In A Minute! (…Or Two)” episode, Artistic Director Rachael Worby reminds us “who we gonna call” when there’s something strange – “Ghostbusters!”

The Pasadena member-supported, nonprofit performing arts organization that makes radically engaging live music experiences accessible for all has published Episode 75 of the minute-or-two-long web series, featuring the vocal group Ember, now on YouTube.

“In A Minute! (…Or Two)” features Worby, MUSE/IQUE’s founder, conductor and artistic director, as she gives quick, sharp musicological insight as your favorite instrumentalists, vocalists, dancers and artists deliver unique and intimate performances. Songs come to life as the artists record separately in their homes across time and space, with the harp played from multiple vantage points, dance changes when set to spoken word, and often the only sound comes from the movement and breath of the dancer.

It only takes a minute or two to learn something new each episode, MUSE/IQUE says on its website. Some of the episodes actually are up to four minutes long.

Ember, a 6-piece acapella group based in Baltimore, Maryland, has performed in at least two previous “In a Minute! (… Or Two)” episodes this year, doing the BeeGees’ “How Deep is Your Love,” in April (Episode 8), and Simon and Garfunkel’s “The Boxer” in June (Episode 41).

In Episode 75, Ember performs the “Ghostbusters” theme song, written and performed by Ray Parker Jr. for the film
