Sally Doughty, dance
Craig Vear, sound processing

Earle Brown, a major force in contemporary music and a leading composer of the American avant-garde since the 1950s, was associated with the experimental composers John Cage, Morton Feldman, and Christian Wolff who, with Brown, came to be known as the New York School.

MTI research student and cellist Audrey Riley is investigating the performance practices of the musicians and composers of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company. In February this year, together with colleague James Woodrow (guitar), a performance was given in Trinity Chapel at DMU of extracts from works by composers of the New York School, associated with the MCDC: Earle Brown, Christian Wolff and Morton Feldman. Audrey has gained funding from the Earle Brown Music Foundation to now present this full concert of these works.

James Woodrow is a member of the Gavin Bryars Ensemble, guitarist for the BBC Symphony Orchestra, and the Richard Alston Dance Company. They are joined by pianist Andrew Zolinsky, professor of piano at the Royal College of Music, and violinist Gregory Warren Wilson, violinist with the contemporary Rambert Dance Company.

Christian Wolff: Micro Exercises (2006)
Morton Feldman: Intersection IV (1953)
Christian Wolff: Moving Spaces (2002)
Morton Feldman: Durations (1961)
Earle Brown: From Folio and Four Systems (1952-1954)

Many thanks to the Earle Brown Music Foundation for their generous support of this project.

Steven Feld: Voices of the Rainforest

CCRMA-Stanford University - Wed, 05/24/2017 - 18:34
Date:  Wed, 05/31/2017 - 5:30pm - 6:30pm Location:  CCRMA Classroom (and Listening Room) Event Type:  Guest Colloquium In 1991 Grateful Dead percussionist Mickey Hart teamed up with anthropologist and sound artist Steven Feld to produce Voices of the Rainforest. In one hour, the CD condenses 24 hours of sounds of the Bosavi rainforest and its Kaluli inhabitants in central Papua New Guinea. The CD reached multiple audiences concerned with interspecies art, experimental field recording, acoustic ecology, and cultural survival, and is still in circulation through Smithsonian Folkways. Over the last year and a half Feld has worked with Dennis Leonard at Skywalker Sound to recreate Voices of the Rainforest in the 7.1 cinema surround format, for acousmatic concerts, as well as indoor/outdoor museum and gallery installations.
