The SOU Percussion Ensembles, under the direction of Terry Longshore, present “Contact” featuring guest artist Daniel Kennedy. Featured will be the world premiere of Bryan Jeffs’ third installment of the Rebel Frog trilogy, “The Rebel Frog Wassails”. Also featured will be Jeffs’ “Contactual Constellations”, performed by the SOU Graduate Percussion Group, a work for graphic musical scores printed directly onto drumheads, on which the performers play while video captures their performance and projects to the audience. Hot off the world premiere at PASIC!

Press Release:
Oregon Center for the Arts at Southern Oregon University
presents the SOU Percussion Ensembles performing “Contact!”

(Ashland, Ore.) – The Music program of the Oregon Center for the Arts at Southern Oregon University presents “Contact!,” an innovative, audiovisual experience performed by the SOU Percussion Ensembles on Friday, December 5 at 7:30 pm in the SOU Music Recital Hall.

“Contact!” is inspired thematically by the piece, “Contactual Constellations,” composed by Bryan Jeffs, SOU adjunct faculty and an alumnus of the SOU Music program. “Contactual Constellation” features graphic musical scores manufactured onto bass drum heads, played upon by the performers, captured in real time and projected for the audience. The ensembles are directed by Dr. Terry Longshore, director of percussion studies at Southern Oregon University,

“Seeing the musical score, while hearing it being played, and, in real-time, getting to follow along visually to see how the artists interpret the score is an amazing experience for the audience,” said Longshore. “The SOU Graduate Percussion Group will have just premiered this piece at the Percussive Arts Society International Convention in Indianapolis in November. This concert will be the West Coast debut of this piece.”

The concert will also include a classic percussion work, “The Drums of Orpheus” by Lou Harrison; “Dance of the Little Fox” by Celso Ruiz for clarinet quintet, arranged by his son, Grant Ruiz, a local flamenco guitarist, for three marimbas and vibraphone; “Reunion,” a new piece for marimba ensemble, written in the style of the Zimbabwe marimba tradition by Lucas Sennhauser, a SOU freshman music major; “Akadinda Trio” by Emmanual Séjourné, for marimba trio in the Uganda “Akadinda” style; “Piru Bole,” a hand drum ensemble piece by John Bergamo, featuring guest artist Daniel Kennedy from California State University, Sacramento; and “Tin Play” by Per Andreasson for percussion quartet.

For lovers of the “Rebel Frog” series composed by Bryan Jeffs, the Percussion Ensembles will introduce “The Rebel Frog Wassails.” Longshore characterizes it as “Frank Zappa meets Christmas music.”

Tickets are $10 general admission, $5 for senior citizens and free to full-time students. The Performing Arts Box Office is located in the Music Recital Hall lobby. Box office hours are noon to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and two hours prior to each performance. Tickets can be purchased with a credit card over the phone by calling 541-552-6348 or online at sou.edu/performingarts. Contact the box office for discounts offered to SOU alumni, Osher Lifelong Learning Institute participants and SNAP/Oregon Trail cardholders.

Metaphysics_of_Notation_1November 19-22, 2014
Indianapolis, Indiana

I am co-hosting the PASIC Focus Day this year with John Lane. Our theme is “Images of Sound: Innovations in Notation”, and we have selected an amazing array of performances, presentations, and panels for the convention.

In addition, I will perform on one of the sessions: Mark Applebaum’s “The Metaphysics of Notation” (Thursday, Nov. 20, 11am). The session will feature multiple interpretations of the work, one of which will be by Caballito Negro (flutist Tessa Brinckman and myself).

Mark Applebaum’s “The Metaphysics of Notation” is one of the most provocative and innovative musical works of the 21st century. Commissioned by the Cantor Art Center at Stanford University, this museum-scale work is comprised of 12 large, graphic musical “scores”, really works of art, hand drawn by the composer. Each piece is ten inches high by 6 feet wide and is filled with evocative glyphs, images, and seemingly random numbers and letters. A “mobile” score accompanies the 12 wall-mounted scores and hangs from the ceiling. Beautiful to behold, the music is left for the performer to interpret as he or she sees fit. The version presented at PASIC will be a digital, scrolling version of the original artworks/scores. Applebaum states, “although I heard no music in my head when composing ‘Metaphysics’, I’m sure it is music.”

Metaphysics_of_Notation_2

Also, the SOU Graduate Percussion Group has been selected to give the world premiere of Bryan Jeffs’ “Contactual Constellations”. The piece is for 3-6 players, performing on 6-8 large drums of varying sizes, the players being free to move between the drums during the performance.  Each drum has a different graphic score printed on its clear drum head and a camera mounted underneath to capture, and then project in real time, both the score and the performer’s rendering of the notation.  This unique visual aspect is key to the work’s goal of connecting the notation, the audience, and the performer’s interpretation into a singular experience – something that is often missing when interpreting graphic notation.

Friday, Oct. 31, 2014, 12:30pm
Ashland, Oregon
Southern Oregon University Music Recital Hall

I will give the world premiere of Mark’s new solo work which is co-commissioned by 62 performers around the world. A synopsis of Composition Machine #1 by Mark Applebaum:

The performance begins at stage right where the performer unfurls a scroll of pictographic notation and plays it according to a personal but predetermined interpretation system. The scroll is then ingloriously compacted and dropped onto an amplified table covered in paper at center stage. A miscellaneous bevy of prescribed objects is placed on the table and moved in given rhythmic fashion. At the conclusion of this ritual the outlines of the objects are traced on the paper in marker. This paper – a new scroll – is then taken to a stage left position where it is performed on different instruments but according to the same fastidious interpretation system. The piece concludes after the player has rolled up the scroll and deposited it at the original stage right position, conceptually preparing for a subsequent performance. This is a piece that produces its own score; as such, the performer will notice that rehearsals should commence with the objects on the table in order to produce a germinal score.

CM#1-1CM#1-2Here are a couple of pics of the table once the second section of the piece is completed, but not yet traced (note, these are from early practice sessions where no paper was placed on the table yet). Note some difference in the placement of the objects. Although I have memorized the action and rhythms of placing and moving the objects the table, I try to move them to a different location each time so the end product, the score, is a little different.

CM#1-3This is a picture of one of the early scores produced by tracing and then removing the objects (click picture to enlarge).
