Alex Christie Talk: Composing Musical Power Structures Through Light and Sound

Alex Christie (‘09, Composition/TIMARA) will present on the compositional process, aesthetics, and technical design of two of his recent works for electronics and light: System Blocks Signal Blocks System and mouthfeel. He will share his approach to composing dynamic power relationships between performer and technology/musical instrument that extend beyond the traditional perspective of “performer as dominant force”. The presentation will include time for participants to experiment with some of his instruments and electronic systems.
