SOUND CHECK IV: DEPARTMENT OF MUSIC'S SMASHING CD
Sound Check IV is the new CD of music by graduate-level composers and performers, the latest in the annual series showcasing the Department of Music.
The new CD includes five pieces: James Wood's Rogosanti, Derek Keller's Eruptive Plains, Farangis Nurulla-Khoja's Scarabe, Javier Alvarez' Temezcal, plus Drei Lieder, op. 18, by early 20th century Austrian composer Anton Webern.
Instrumentation ranges from Alvarez and Wood's pieces for solo percussion to Keller's composition for a nine-piece ensemble.
While the Department of Music curriculum runs from classical music to jazz and Indian, the Sound Check series emphasizes the grad program's experimental side dating back to founding composers Will Ogdon and Robert Erickson.
