John Schott, electric guitar -- Matthew Wright, digital sound

Mon, 05/21/2018 - 07:17
Date:  Sat, 06/02/2018 - 7:30pm - 9:00pm Location:  CCRMA Stage Event Type:  Concert John Schott and Matt Wright have been musically collaborating for 18 years both as a duo and also with the late David Wessel as That Situated Trio, who performed in the U.S. and Europe. Matt and John have carried on with recent duo performances in the Bay Area and New York. Together they develop a number of musical programs and interfaces for Matt that provide certain limits and affordances for their improvisatory explorations. These include pre-recorded samples of John playing, as well as programs that listen to John's live guitar and respond, and programs that allow Matt to improvise harmonically, melodically, and rhythmically. The music can range from abstract, contemplative, thrashing, grooving, not grooving, bluesy, Viennese, and downright insane.

Date:  Sat, 05/19/2018 - 7:30pm - 9:00pm Location:  CCRMA Stage Event Type:  Concert Ekmeles Vocal Ensemble performs new works for sextet and electronics by Stanford composers: Chris Lortie, Jessie Marino, Charlie Sdraulig, Davor Branimir Vincze, Nick Virzi, and Andrew Watts.

Ekmeles is a vocal ensemble dedicated to the performance of new and rarely-heard works, and gems of the historical avant garde. New York is home to a vibrant instrumental New Music scene, with a relative paucity of vocal music. Ekmeles was founded to fill the gap by presenting new a cappella repertoire for solo voices, and by collaborating with these instrumental ensembles.

Akiko Hatakeyama - Storytelling, memories... real-time computer-based interactivity

Mon, 04/23/2018 - 23:11
Date:  Fri, 05/04/2018 - 3:00pm - 4:30pm Location:  CCRMA Seminar Room Event Type:  Guest Lecture Akiko Hatakeyama is a composer/performer of electroacoustic music and intermedia. She explores the boundaries between written music, improvisation, electronics, real-time computer-based interactivity, and visual media. Storytelling, memories, and nature play an important role in Akiko's work, and she most often finds beauty in simplicity.  Akiko's practice focuses on realizing her ideas of relations between the body and mind into intermedia composition, often in conjunction with building customized instruments/interfaces. It is a form of nonverbal communication with her inner self and with the environment, including the audience. By somatically actuating perceptions with sound, light, and haptic objects, her ideas of relations between the body and mind become embraceable. FREE Open to the Public
