Daniel Fishkin—Transcriptions


From Andrew Chatfield and the CFA Staff:

“Daniel Fishkin is an artist with the kind of tenacity that is mostly reserved for politicians and mountain climbers.”

Graduate music student Daniel Fishkin presents a diverse program of American avant-garde composition and the experimental canon, filtered through and radically reinterpreted by invented instruments. Daxophone (played by drawing a bow over a thin piece of wood), 20 foot piano strings, and oscilloscopes (electronic test instruments) combine to create new timbral real estate for iconic pieces.

Date: Tuesday, October 28th
Time: 9PM-11PM
Place: World Music Hall
