Time Stands Still Concert One: Medium City

Event Date/Time

Apr 5, 2013
8:00 pm


This “Time Stands Still” concert will feature the U.S. premiere of the London-based choral group Vocal Constructivists, directed by Jane Alden, alongside Wesleyan students in the Toneburst Laptop & Electronic Arts Ensemble and students from “Visual Sounds: Graphic Notation in Theory and Practice.” The ensembles will perform the world premiere of Michael Parsons' Nevrazumitelny; the U.S. premieres of both Ronald Kuivila's A City of No Allusions and Paula Matthusen's in words of one syllable; plus Mark Applebaum's Medium; Anthony Braxton'sFalling River; Pauline Oliveros' New Sound Meditation (with laptop ensemble), Sound Patternsand Lullaby for Daisy Pauline; and Christian Wolff's For 1, 2, or 3 People and Prose Collection (Play, Sticks, Song).
Notation is a rich, mutable, and complex area of musical practice, in which composition, theorization, writing, and performance overlap and converge. The “Time Stands Still” festival-conference brings together musicologists, performers, composers, and theorists to consider the nature of notation in the early 21st century. “Time Stands Still” combines talks, workshops, discussions, and performances. Paper sessions and roundtable discussions will be held on both days, all open to the general public.

“Time Stands Still” is part of “Music & Public Life,” a year-long campus and community-wide exploration, celebrating and studying the sounds, words, and spirit of music at the local, national, and transnational levels through concerts, workshops, gatherings, and courses, all designed to cross disciplines.

Cost $10 general public; $8 senior citizens, Wesleyan faculty/staff, non-Wesleyan stu
