On Saturday evening, May 11th, in Taplin Auditorium on the Princeton University Campus, there will be a concert of computer music. It begins at 8 PM and admission is free. Call 609-258-4241 for directions or any additional information. All the pieces on the concert deal with views of aspects of the real world, some trivial, and some profound. It should be a very interesting concert. Here are (biased) capsule descriptions of the five pieces to be played. Autumn Cove Spring Night, by Linda Seltzer A setting of some Chinese poetry, using a variety of interesting techniques to great effect. Entering 212, by Alistair Riddell The sqeaky door in our computer lab, becomes the star of this delightful composition. Longing For the Light, by Alicyn Warren An interview with an elder art historian about Rilke, aging, understanding and memory forms the basis of this very moving piece. People Underground, by Katherine Norman This will be played with a video for which is was composed. The combination of music and video is extremely effective, and even a bit troubling. Table's Clear, by Paul Lansky The composer and his two young sons set loose upon bottles, pans and dishes in the kitchen one evening form the sonic source for this piece. Lots of fun.
