FRESH SOUND FALL 2012: "CROSSOVERS"

 

The Fresh Sound music series, which began in 1995, has always focused on bringing excellent, and, not surprisingly, fresh new music to San Diegans which they might not get to hear otherwise. This Fall Season continues with this mission. The past few seasons we have focused on one theme at a time, for instance, percussion, reeds, voice/electronics. This series we decided to cover the whole gamut of music we feature: Electronic, Experimental, Contemporary Classical, Improvised. Fresh Sound wants to show how they cross over, breaking down the barriers between them. Good music is good music, right? Why continue to squish them into categories?

The first concert will be with four brilliant computer musicians from the West Coast and Switzerland, the second with two amazing improvisors from NYC. Third is a concert composed by an award winning French composer, Philipp Manoury, blending electronics and acoustic voice, performed by Miller Puckett, creator of MaxMSP and PD (Pure Data), and soprano Juliana Snapper. Fourth is virtuosic trio who combines improvised, composed and electronic music.
