Italian Pasta and Pizza on Composer Talk

25 05 2013
Tune in to this Saturday, May 25, 4:30 PM to 7:00 PM CT for “Composer Talk” with your intrepid hosts composers Hsin-Jung Tsai and Chris Becker.
On this edition of Composer Talk we’ll be playing two beautiful pieces of musique concrete inspired by Italian pasta and pizza respectively composed by New York-based composer and music therapist Enrico Curreri.
Then, we are going to explore music by Andrew S. Knox, from solo percussion artist Lisa Pegher ‘s album Minimal Art.   I have been interested in string quartet; thus, I would love to play string quartet no. 1 by Fred Lerdahl.
We’ll also play tracks from So Percussion’s new recording of composer Dan Trueman’s Neither Anvil Nor Pulley for laptop, turntable, metronomes,… and percussion quartet.  Neither Anvil Nor Pulley will be available for purchase May 28 from Cantaloupe Music.  It’s also one of those electronic pieces that uses a lot of technology that’s hard to explain, but we’ll do our best!”

“Composer Talk” is the red headed stepchild of Scordatura, 91.7 KTRU’s Contemporary, Avant-Garde, and Electroacoustic radio show.
