Saturday, April 9, 2011 - 7:30pm
Music Center Recital Hall (UCSC)
Presented by: 

 Music Department

Graduate student Andre Marquetti presents a recital.


The compositions ShadowsSinfonia, Transfigurations and Acquarella are a cross-synthesis of my diverse musical “aesthetic” approaches over the years, from Cage’s, specially, Morton Feldman’s indeterminacy, Stockhausen’s “moment” form, world music and improvisation, sound art, and my most recent interest in the electronic “granular” synthesis. The main focus in these compositions has been to develop novel ways to set musical material in temporal time, in modular forms, drones, rhythm pulses, polyphony and the performers collaboration. Shadows, for flute and violin, is a tune based on “just intonation” A major scale.  In Sinfonia, for instrumental ensemble, the classic definition applies, a prelude, an intermezzo or postlude, provide contrast with adjacent otherwise different sections. Acquarella, for mixed ensemble, consists of fragments from the famous Brazilian song Aquarela do Brasil by Ary Barroso.
 
Free admission.
Doors open 30 minutes before concert.

Music Center Recital Hall (UCSC)

UCSC's April in Santa Cruz festival of contemporary music kicks off with a free concert by the Los Angeles Percussion Quartet, performing music by John Cage, Iannis Xenakis, Mark Appelbaum, Jeffrey Homes, Andre Marquetti, and Eric Guinivan.

Embarking on their third concert season, the Los Angeles Percussion Quartet has fast become one of the premier percussion chamber ensembles on the West Coast.  
 
In presenting their unique repertoire of mostly commissioned music, the LAPQ blends the best of both the visceral and sensual elements of percussion, such that a performance could place the audience in the center of a primal drumming ceremony, or immerse them in a static field of microtonal metal ambience.  
 
With a goal to champion the music of regional composers, the LAPQ repertoire features works by Shaun Naidoo, Steve Forman, David Johnson, and Mark Applebaum.  Several LAPQ commissions from composers Sean Heim, Eric Guinivan, Jeff Holmes, Ben Phelps, and Alex Miller have quickly garnered critical recognition and awards, most notably by the Theodore Presser Foundation, Fromm Foundation, and BMI.  
 
Recent performances include Monday Evening Concerts, Music & Conversations, Chapman Percussion Symposium, the Pasadena Art Center of Design, and as ensemble-in-residence at the 2nd Los Angeles Composer’s Project, the University of Southern California, Chapman University, and the California Institute of the Arts.  
 
2011 will see the group’s release of numerous audio recordings (featuring the music of Eric Guinivan, Steve Forman, and David Johnson), world premieres of three LAPQ commissions, and a tour of Northern California.
