generative, indeterminate, & hybrid works | Joseph Branciforte & Kenneth Kirschner
The concert will explore digitally-mediated acoustic compositions for small ensemble, from acoustic translations of works created in the electronic domain to real-time generative scores. In the latter case, custom-designed software generates a rule-based score which can be continuously modified as to its orchestration, harmony, form, and dynamics during performance. The resulting composition is displayed live as traditional musical notation via a network of laptops.

Kannapolis: A Moving Portrait
Kannapolis: A Moving Portrait is a kind of time machine that will transport you into the lives of ordinary people living in the South during the Great Depression. Based on the work of nearly forgotten photographer H. Lee Waters, Kannapolis weaves some of the hundreds of short, silent films he shot of daily life in small towns across Virginia, Tennessee, and the Carolinas (including Kannapolis, NC); into a compelling tapestry of a moment in time. Featuring music by Jenny Scheinman.
