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.
