This semester’s KSC Percussion Ensemble concert explores the relationship between new music and art galleries on Thursday, November 19 at 7:30 p.m. Artists and musicians have long inspired each other and formed collectives. Robert Rauschenberg, Jackson Pollock, Buckminster Fuller, and Marcel Duchamp were part of the “New York” School that was associated with sound artists like John Cage. The concert will feature percussion, found objects, organized sound, spoken word, hand drums, and even theater spread through the gallery as sound sculptures. Composers include John Cage, James Tenney, Juri Seo, Alice Gomez, Pauline Oliveros, Glen Velez, Jason Treuting and Christopher Swist. Swist’s “Chance 64” is a computer piece written in tribute to John Cage. The computer creates the form in real time using the I Ching Hexagram of 64 random possibilities.
