ICE AND RAND STEIGER, NEW MUSIC AT CALIT2
|UC San Diego composer Rand Steiger's new music for ICE (the International Contemporary Ensemble) will be presented as a work-in-progress at the Calit2 Auditorium on January 11 at 5 PM. In recent years, Steiger, currently composer-in-residence at Calit2, has explored digital processing for music (UCSD has been on the leading edge of such technologies since the 1970s). Friday's event will showcase his latest research and applications for ICE's music utilizing 12-channel surround sound. Featured compositions are Concatenation (for bassoon), Cyclone (clarinet), Joust (flute and bassoon), and Light on Water (flute and piano). ICE includes MacArthur Fellow (and former La Jollan) Claire Chase as well as percussionist, video artist and UCSD music/visual arts alumnus Ross Karre. Steiger's new music will be performed by ICE next season in New York.|
