  • Brown University Wind Symphony Concert Download Brown University Wind Symphony Concert to my desktop calendar

    October 17, 2014 8:00 PM - 9:30 PM Matthew McGarrell, conductor. Works by Steven Bryant and Gustav Holst. Program (subject to change): Steven Bryant - Bloom (2004) Bloom is a celebration of springtime. The bright, sunny days, with nature in bloom all around, give me a powerful sense of well-being, simultaneously tranquil and exuberant. Bloom is my attempt to recreate that feeling. Steven Bryant - all stars are love (2014) all stars are love began as a simple song written as a surprise gift for my wife, Verena, for our wedding in 2010. I set the E.E. Cummings poem all stars are (and not one star only) love, and our dear friend and extraordinary soprano, Hila Plitmann, performed it at the ceremony in Austria. Fellow composer (and Hila's husband!) Eric Whitacre suggested at the time that it would work well as an instrumental work, and that thought stuck with me, until the right opportunity to adapt the work arose. This commission from the Colorado Wind Ensemble and CWE Commissioning Project Consortium gave me that opportunity. I can never simply arrange a work from one medium to another, however, and I ended up recomposing large portions of the work, so this is as much new music as it is material from the original song, though the dramatic shape and harmonic progression at the heart of the work remain. Steven Bryant - Suite Dreams (2007) Suite Dreams is the fourth and final(?) of my Parody Suite pieces. Unlike the others (Chester Leaps In,ImPercynations, and MetaMarch), it's not intentionally funny and tongue-in-cheek in character. Rather, it's a dream-like fantasia based on Holst's First Suite in Eb. The motivic material is almost exclusively from the inverted Chaconne melody in Mvt. I and from Mvt. III. Gustav Holst - First Suite in E-flat By early 1909, when Holst composed the first of his two Suites for Military Band, he had been teaching for six years in two London area girls' schools. At one, St. Paul's in Hammersmith, Holst served as Director of Music until his death. Previously, he had completed his studies at the Royal College of Music in London (1893-1898) and had enjoyed a short career as a trombonist with the Carl Rosa Opera Company and the Scottish National Orchestra (1898-1903). The exact circumstances of the First Suite in E-flat's composition (it may have been for a competition organized by the Worshipful Company of Musicians) and the first performance (possibly the Festival at the People's Palace, Mile End, London in May 1909) are not certainly known. The first documented performance was at the Royal School for Military Music, Kneller Hall, Twickenham on 23 June 1920. Each of the three movements of the Suite is based on an ascending three note motive derived from the opening Chaconne. In the manuscript score, Holst requested that the Suite be played without a break so as to strengthen the coherence resulting from three movements "founded on the same phrase". Although the work is made up entirely of Holst's own melodic materials, it reflects his interest in English folk song and in eighteenth century polyphonic techniques. In its complexity and in the challenges it posed to the performer, the Suite was a remarkable departure from band music of the early twentieth century. It was immediately popular with band musicians and has become a staple of wind repertoire. --- To request special services, accommodations or assistance for this event, please contact Ashley Lundh [401.863.3234 - Ashley_Lundh@brown.edu] as far in advance of the event as possible.

  • Composing and Improvising with Real-time Systems Download Composing and Improvising with Real-time Systems to my desktop calendar

    November 4, 2014 8:00 PM - 9:30 PM Original works by students of 2230. In probing the relationship between humans, interfaces, and sonic materials, this seminar asks: how useful are established notions of composition and improvisation in a contemporary ‘real-time’ age? What makes a good/expressive digital/electronic instrument? Should the design of these instruments follow the established blueprint of their acoustic and electromechanical counterparts, or should new technologies equate to new musics and new forms of musical expression? Although harnessing the intelligence of the human body through movement and touch can be highly productive, is the decipherability of human agency/presence always important? What is it that makes this agency/presence decipherable? And what are the alternatives? This concert will provide idiosyncratic answers to some of the above questions.

  • “Schaulust” Dissertation Performance Download “Schaulust” Dissertation Performance to my desktop calendar

    November 14, 2014 8:00 PM - 9:30 PM Mark Cetilia — “Schaulust” Dissertation Performance Schaulust is a study in light and sound: an investigation of structure and rupture, of rhythm and noise. Schaulust performances are sensorial exercises focused on developing an awareness of the conditions of observation. These events pair custom hardware and software designed specifically for use in real-time improvisation with stroboscopic light and robotically-controlled mirrors, resulting in a full-body experience that embraces the base pleasures afforded by the generation and manipulation of light and sound as physical objects, evolving over time from the hypnotic to the chaotic. BIO: Mark Cetilia is a sound / media artist positioned at the nexus of analogue and digital technologies. Exploring the possibilities of generative systems in art, design, and sound creation, Cetilia’s practice is an exercise in carefully controlled chaos. For over a decade, he has worked to develop idiomatic performance systems utilizing custom hardware and software, manifesting in a rich tapestry of sound and image. Mark is a member of the electroacoustic ensemble Mem1 (with Laura Cetilia), the unpredictable cybernetic entity Titans of Jazz (with Luke Moldof), and the experimental media art group Redux (with Joe Cantrell). Cetilia’s work has been screened / installed at the Institute of Contemporary Arts (London, UK), the Ben-Ari Museum of Contemporary Art (Bat Yam, IL), R.K. Projects (Providence, RI), the Atlantic Center for the Arts (New Smyrna Beach, FL), and SoundWalk (Long Beach, CA). He has performed widely throughout the U.S. and abroad at venues including Café OTO (London, UK), the Borealis Festival (Bergen, NO), STEIM (Amsterdam, NL), the REDCAT Theater at Disney Hall (Los Angeles), Issue Project Room (Brooklyn, NY), Menza Pri Koritu (Ljubljana, SI), Uganda (Jerusalem, IL), the San Francisco Electronic Music Festival, and Electronic Church (Berlin, DE). His sound works have been published by Radical Matters, Dragon's Eye Recordings, Iynges, Anarchymoon, Quiet Design, Interval, and the Estuary Ltd. imprint, which he runs together with his partner Laura Cetilia.
