Corwin Chair Series Lecture: "Secrets, Dreams, Faith and Wonder: A Mass for the New Millennium" (Stephen Travis Pope)
The Department of Music will present a Corwin Series Lecture featuring composer Stephen Travis Pope on Friday, February 19, 2021 at 11 am PST via Zoom. Pope's lecture, titled "Secrets, Dreams, Faith and Wonder: A Mass for the New Millennium," will focus on his film, “Secrets, Dreams, Faith and Wonder," a feature-length abstract music/video ritual of thanksgiving in five parts. It follows the structure of rituals of gratitude celebrated throughout the ages and across cultures and religions. The five pieces of music incorporate voices in Latin, English, and Arabic as well as bird and whale songs. Each of the videos was made to fit the music of the respective movement. The videos for the first three parts were contributed by Pope's friends Lane Clark and UC Santa Barbara student Lance Putnam; the video for the final movement was produced using software developed at UC Santa Barbara for Graham Wakefield and Haru Ji.
