Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Roger Reynolds' 80th birthday will be celebrated with a symposium, (Feb. 3), concert (Feb. 4) and multimedia exhibit (Feb. 3-5). Reynolds has mentored many generations of composers since he joined UCSD's music faculty in 1969. The concert will feature the Arditti Quartet, which has premiered and recorded several works by Reynolds. Along with music for string quartet and electronics by Reynolds, the program includes compositions by Chaya Czernowin (UCSD alumna and former music faculty, now on the Harvard faculty) and Ben Hackbarth (music alumnus, now head of composition at the University of Liverpool). The three-day installation is curated by percussionist, video artist, and UCSD alumnus Ross Karre, now a member of the International Contemporary Ensemble. It will highlight the works PING (1968), Sanctuary (2007), and george WASHINGTON (2013), as well as elements of other works by Reynolds. The symposium is titled The Interaction of Scientific and Artistic Imagination: Perceptual Studies and the Making of Music. Speakers will include Stephen McAdams (Canada), Philippe Lalitte (France), and Aniruddh Patel (Tufts University, Boston). Following their talks, they will be joined Reynolds, Karre and composer Katharina Rosenberger (UCSD music faculty) for a round table discussion moderated by composer and percussionist Steven Schick of the music faculty. Reynolds' life and work are extensively documented online in the Library of Congress's Roger Reynolds Collection.
