Springfest is an annual festival of experimental music presented by the graduate students from the UC San Diego Department of Music—the premier center on the West Coast for experimental and new music.
This concert features a selection of interdisciplinary pieces that engage with theatricality, surreality, and ritual. There will be three brand new works, including the premiere of Josh Charney’s music/drama Phaedra for piano, voice and playback, UCSD alum Yvette Jackson’s new piece for fixed media, and Tobin Chodos’ realization of Richard Nixon’s Piano Concerto #1. The program will also feature UCSD graduate and musicologist Heidi Von Gunden’s Whistle Music: A Sonic Exorcism, a work that explores ritual music surrounding various cultures’ exorcism ceremonies. Lastly, an ensemble will honor a friend of the music department, Ryoko Amadee Goguen, with a performance of her composition Pelican Fish Button.
All areas of the building are accessible.
