Senior Recital – Jacob Masters

Andrew Chatfield writes in from the CFA to invite you to a senior music recital by Jacob Masters ’15, “Exploring F#.”

An original composition for full orchestra, Masters’ “Exploring F#” uses a series of musical vignettes to adventure through diverse key areas, ideas, and moods. These explorations are unified by the pitch F#, which plays different roles in different sections of the music but remains important throughout.

Date: Thursday, April 9th
Time: 9:00pm
Place: Memorial Chapel

Recital: Jason Brogan—The View from Nowhere

From CFA Staffer Andrew Chatfield:

This concert by graduate music student Jason Brogan links together thought, noise, and improvisation in an attempt to investigate the self as being just a process: a “no one” that could be constructed or manipulated. Through the defamiliarization of neurobiological, psychological, and artistic-performative parameters (as “opera”) via amplification and digital processing, and the objectification of this experience via live documentation and recording/playback on tape, subjectivity is disassociated from selfhood and reconsidered as experimental music.

Time: 9:00pm

Recital: Dina Maccabee – Self-Same Sounds

An invitation courtesy of CFA staffer Andrew Chatfield:

Graduate music student Dina Maccabee presents new vocal pieces exploring the properties of the voice in dialogue with its many mediated reproductions, featuring student vocal group The Mixolydians. Alongside her own work, Ms. Maccabee will perform late twentieth-century pieces that challenge conventional narrative orientations of the voice. The significant influences of music by Meredith Monk, Alvin Lucier, Pauline Oliveros, Terry Riley, and Joan La Barbara are juxtaposed with homages to Mieskuoro Huutajat, the Finnish men’s shouting choir, early work by John Cage, and Meredith Willson’s musical theater innovations.

Date: Tuesday, November 11
Time: 9:00pm
Place: World Music Hall (CFA)
