March 17, 8pm – 10pm FREE
March’s Telemetry installment will be a headphone concert featuring flute and tuba duo pneuma, and ghost in the mp3.
pneuma (flute & tuba duo) is the collaborative, real-time-composing project of Heather Frasch and Max Murray. A ‘performed, and re-performed compositional-workshop’, the duo is the ongoing result of analytical inquiry and investigation into formal dynamics, and chamber-music dialogue at the outer limits of material reduction and specificity.
Ghost in the MP3
Ryan Maguire (born 1984; San Diego, California) is an experimental musician completing a PhD in Composition and Computer Technologies at the University of Virginia. Credited with creating “a great new genre of ambient ghost music” by SPIN’s Death and Taxes, his work dances along the boundaries of perception and memory through digital sound, image, and text. Maguire’s music has received millions of digital plays in over 200 countries and territories. Ghost in the MP3 has been covered by the BBC, Deutschlandradio, CBC, NPR, Vice, and WIRED, with related awards from the International Computer Music Association, Public Radio Exchange, and the Raven Society. He has presented in Los Angeles, Berlin, London, New York, Toronto, Copenhagen, and elsewhere. His writing is published in the SEAMUS Journal and by ISSPA, SMC, and ICMC. His compositions have been performed by ensembles such as JACK Quartet, Yarn/Wire, and Callithumpian Consort, and his recorded music is available on Ravello Records, Bandcamp, and Spotify. He is a 2018/19 Dean’s Fellow at the University of Virginia.
