An afternoon of new music composed by The Hartt School composition faculty members Robert Carl and Ken Steen.
Program: Robert Carl – Infinity Avenue Ken Steen – Assumption
“Robert Carl’s music, to my ear at least, has always felt like the work of a particularly sensitive sonic observer of the world. Originally a student of history before he refocused his efforts into music, his interest in time, memory, and space are veins running through his compositions, his work more given to conjuring imagery than narrative plot. And whether inspiration is mined in the wake of a seascape or travelers on a speeding bullet train, the resulting music tends to carry a distinct organic beauty and rich, encompassing depth.” ~ Julia Lu, NewMusicBox
