Sonic Generator Concert

I'll keep this brief to avoid inundating this blog with too many posts: Sonic Generator's first concert of the season is coming up next week.

Monday, November 12th at 8 p.m.
Georgia Tech Alumni House
190 North Avenue

Admission is free and no reservations are required.

The concert features The New Math(s) (1999), a collaboration between filmmaker Hal Hartley, Dutch minimalist composer Louis Andriessen, and electronic sound artist Michel van der Aa; an arrangement of part of Brian Eno's Music for Airports (1978) done by Evan Ziporyn; Atlanta composer Steve Everett's Ladrang Kampung (2003); Donnacha Dennehy's Glamour Sleeper (2004); Jacob ter Veldhuis’ Grab It!; and Javier Alvarez’s Temazcal (1984).

Full details (including directions) here.

Hope to see you there!

I'll reschedule the Composers Meetup so as not to conflict with this concert.

Thank god it's at 8pm. 'Cause getting to Georgia Tech from Roswell any earlier is hell.

Also, I've been a fan of Hal Hartley's since The Unbelievable Truth, so this will be interesting. (Speaking of the unbelievable truth... it' a shame about Adrienne Shelly's tragic death, but I'm glad to know of the foundation that's come from it -- here it is: http://www.adrienneshellyfoundation.org/ )

This was a *marvelous* concert. Engaging, entertaining pieces, virtuosic performances, intriguing electro-acoustic interactions, and... incredible audience turnout! Great show, great success. Congrats to sonic generator and the GA Tech crew. Wish I could see this show again, it was that fun.
