The Spring Jazz Piano showcase featuring the students of Murray Low will include standards and contemporary works.

The Flute Ensemble, directed by Karen Van Dyke, performs original works and transcriptions for flutes.

Marco Fusi performs works by Stanford composers Charlie Sdraulig, Julie Herndon, Chris Lortie, Julie Zhu, and Davor Vincze 

Marco Fusi is a violinist/violist, and a passionate advocate for the music of our time. Marco also plays viola d’amore, commissioning new pieces and collaborating with composers to promote and expand existing repertoire for the instrument.

fff features improvisers/performers Julie Zhu, Julie Herndon, Michele Cheng, Michiko Theurer, Barbara Nerness, and Stephanie Sherriff.

Laetitia Sonami, composer, sound installation artist, and technologist, discusses her forty-year musical trajectories and encounters.

Sonami has studied with Eliane Radigue, Robert Ashley, David Behrman, and Joel Chadabe. She moved from France to the U.S. in the late seventies to pursue her interest in electronic music, away from the more conservative French institutions of the time.

Barbara Nerness presents her interactive installation Doublevision, a video installation that turns audio and movement into visuals. The visuals are created using only audio signals by exploiting old CRT television technology. The work aims to remove the boundary between audio and video as physical media, and highlight the perceptual distinction. Ambient sounds and movements affect the visuals in real time, hence the name Doublevision

TAK Ensemble performs work by Hassan Estakhrian, Julie Herndon, Doug McCausland, Nick Virzi, and Julie ZhuTAK is a quintet that delivers energetic and virtuosic performances of contemporary classical music. The ambitious ensemble “impresses with the organicity of their sound, their dynamism and virtuosity — and, well, just a dash of IDGAF as they slay the thorniest material like it’s nothing” (Q2 Music).

Songs Without Words, for voice (no text) and electronics presents work written for, and dedicated to, Thomas Buckner by some of the most pioneering composers in experimental music: Alvin Lucier, Robert Ashley, Annea Lockwood, and Phill Niblock.

David Behrman’s program will include revivals of two pieces from the early days of electronic / computer music, as well as one or two recent ones. These are pieces in which the electronics provide situations to be explored rather than fixed compositions with specific instructions to performers. The concert will follow a week of collaborative work with Mills College students during Behrman’s residency there, and will feature participation by two of the Mills grad students.
