CANCELLED - Granular Modality: A Live Sound Exploration With Earl Howard
November 01, 2012 - 7:30pm
In many respects, Earl Howard's music is an anomaly that resists categorization and the seductiveness of genre. As an important force in improvised music, and music for live electronics, his work employs complex structures and rigorous transitions of sound and texture. His electro-acoustic music is realized with a K-2600 Kurzweil that for Howard is not merely a keyboard synthesizer but an open system, a computer with a most effective interface with modules and a key map that enable more freedom in the composer's creation of textures.
