Rehearsal Time: Thursday April 20

As I mentioned in class today, I have to go out of town tomorrow, April 20. Please use the class hour to rehearse with your group for the Class Concert, which is planned for Wednesday, May 10.

You should all be in an ensemble by now. If not, be sure to get in touch with your colleagues.  Please write in the Comment Section below, the members of your group and what piece or pieces you have planned.  If you’re not in a group, but are seeking one, write in the Comment Section!

You are welcome to invite others from the college to participate with you! (I’m thinking of the group looking to perform Snowforms: if you have colleagues who sing, why not invite them to participate?)

What shall we all perform together as a group piece? We have performed Tuning MeditationIn CThe Great Learning, a variety of rhythm games from Stridulations for the Good Luck Feast. There are other graphic scores we could interpret together as a class. Let me know what you’re interested in trying as a large group. We’ll discuss the votes on Monday!

    I am taking this course remotely so I haven’t been assigned to or chosen a group. I can contribute by sending over a single or multitracked vocal recording for a group to perform with. I am open to suggestions.

  2. Rose: I’ll send you a copy of Snowforms. It is for women’s voices and a multi-track version might be a very interesting way to realize it. The piece requires 8 voices, but I’m sure we could either perform it with fewer voice, or multitrack record a few of the voices, and perform the others live.
    I can’t attach it here, but I’ll send it to you. Any other women in the class want to participate? It is a graphic score, but pitches are given. Here’s a video of a performance with the score: https://youtu.be/GiOhtgR1T0k

    I am definitely up to recording a multitracked version of Snowforms. I will get started on it and send over a sample mp3 for review.

  4. I am in two groups:
    Me and Olivia are performing “Dodecaphonia” She will sing while I play piano.
    Me and Jose are performing ” Spiegel Im Spiegel” He will play the piano while I play the cello.
