Graduate composer Marc Evanstein will present a PhD Composition Recital on Saturday, May 11th at 12:30 pm in Karl Geiringer Hall in the Music Building. The program will include a questionably-titled work for viola and piano performed alongside violist Jonathan Morgan; works for piano and electronics based on algorithms, as well as on not-algorithms, performed by the composer; a ridiculous piece that uses Fourier analysis to de- and re-construct Ravel's Bolero as a work for percussion quartet and impossible electronic orchestra, performed by four clones of Kramer Elwell; a work for oboe and guitar deriving material from the second movement of Beethoven's Pathetique Sonata; the premier of a piece for solo flute, written for and performed by Adriane Hill; and Alban Berg's formidable piano sonata, performed along with a live visualization of the harmony and other aspects of the music. Mr. Evanstein has studied with UCSB faculty members Clarence Barlow, Joel Feigin, Curtis Roads, and Charles Asche.
