New Pieces by UCSD Graduate Student Composers

I'll be leading the charge in premiers of
Nicholas Deyoe's
-fifteen players-

Anna Thorvalds's
Streaming Aryhtmia

Both of these pieces are for large ensemble and strike me as particularly top notch works.

Also on the program are new works by Clint McCallum, Daniel Tacke, Carolyn Chen and Brian Griffith-Loeb.

I can't promise there will be anything as enlightening as the performance on last week's NWEAMO conference out at SDSU involving a guy in monk's robe armed only with a sampler box full of squealing-pig sounds mounted on top of a guitar, accompanying himself visually by a live rendering of voice-activated powerpoint...but word on the street is that Clint's piece does invovle Stephanie Aston doing battle with the conductor (in this case, Nick Deyoe) with naught to protect herself but a pink riding crop.

Come for the music, stay for the undecipherable metaphors and free lunch.
