Event description

Description

We are pleased to present the twelfth installment of our Nature of Music series.

Composer Matthew Burtner makes music with glaciers, a business fraught with the hazards of calving, melting and, on occasion, over-modulating. His recent impressive CD release, Glacier Music, will be the subject of his interview concert with Other Minds Artistic Director Charles Amirkhanian.

Burtner composes music for concert instruments accompanied by glacier sounds, recorded by the composer at very close range. The Chairman of the Music Department of the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, he was born in 1970 in Naknek, Alaska, a small coastal fishing village where he was inspired by the vast natural resources of his native state. He will present recorded performances of Sound Cast of Matanuska Glacier (with string quartet, wind trio and Chapman Stick, as well as Syntax of Snow (with solo percussion).

A highlight of the evening will be video of a dramatic collaboration with Time Lapse Dance (NY).




Seating in the Goldman Theater is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Doors to the theater open 30 minutes prior to the performance. If you require ADA accommodation, please contact events@browercenter.org in advance of the event.
