I’m excited to share that my paper “Revisiting the Music Box-Like Foundations of Rebecca Saunders’ Compositions” was accepted to the Special Call for Papers from Students & Recent Graduates for the Sixty-Third National Conference of The College Music Society.
On November 22, 2019, Sisters Akousmatica‘s Moonah Community Radio Festival broadcast a collaborative work by the composition students I teach at Illinois String Academy from Moonah, Tasmania, Australia. I’m very proud of the students’ teamwork during the recording, imagining, and realizing “Joyous Hippopotamus.” Take a listen at 41:41 in this broadcast recording.
I highly recommend exploring the entire festival’s recordings and the works they commissioned for it. I particularly enjoyed how often they engaged with people at Moonah Arts Centre with so many warm, interesting conversations.
This fall was a busy, stressful, and rewarding one. While there have been several wonderful things I’ve been able to do in 2019, being able to do research about Aaron Cassidy’s music at the University of Huddersfield was the experience I had hoped to do the most. I’m so glad I was able to go.
For everyone at Electronic Music Midwest who are participating in DuoTube, Click here or use the video below as your interactive instrument. I recommend pressing play, pausing it and allowing it to buffer a bit before using it in rehearsal or performance. Thanks for joining in on the fun!
