This year's experimental music concert will feature pieces written by CMW student Liam Hopkins, Media Lab guest teacher Sakiko Mori, and local composer Forrest Larson. The performers include CMW's Music Lab and Phase II students, IMPS participants, and members of the CMW Players.
Our experimental music class started last fall as a part of CMW's Media Lab. The class has been focused on exploring different ways to make and listen to sounds and compose both in traditional and non-traditional ways. Our goal is to find a way of making sounds and compositions that works for each of us individually and excites us. See posts about this class on the Media Lab website.
The concert on June 2 at 7:00 pm (venue TBD very shortly--check back in a day or two) is the result of our work together this year, and it will include a couple of pieces that we made in the class, and also there will be two pieces that are composed by local composers, specifically for us to perform in this concert.
We are very excited for the IMPS musicians to be a part of this concert. Even with limited rehearsal time, it will be fun!
