Cameron-Wolfe will present a lecture-performance in the Raymond Jonson
Gallery of the University of New Mexico Art Museum in Albuquerque on
Tuesday, October 19, at 5:30PM, titled Dane Rudhyar and the Meta-Physics of Dissonance, in conjunction with the exhibition To Form from Air: Music and the Art of Raymond Jonson.
Jonson was founder of the New Mexico-based Transcendental Painting
Group, of which the composer, Dane Rudhyar was a member. The program will include musical
examples of the evolving concept of dissonance from the last 1,500
years, concluding with Rudhyar's 1967 Tetragram # 9, "Summer Nights".
"It's not a contest, but the best piece on the disc appears to be Undertow,
a duet for violin and piano by Margaret
has a long career as a composer and apparently began utilizing
serialism early but ran into a wall with it and spent some two decades
in silence. When she resumed, it was with a looser application of her
technique; this piece is still technically very solid, yet it is a
dazzling, complex work that moves in a single-minded direction and has a
definitive impact." See full review here.
