Wednesdays@7 presents
David Borgo - Suite of Uncommon Sorrows

Wednesday, October 6 at 7:00 p.m.

Streaming live from the Conrad Prebys Music Center Experimental Theater

Watch at music.ucsd.edu/live

 

The Suite of Uncommon Sorrows is an eleven-part suite of original music composed in response to the tumultuous events of 2020, including the devastating COVID-19 pandemic, the growing Black Lives Matter movement, and the debilitating polarization of U.S. politics that made it impossible to address either of these adequately.

Each movement explores a different “uncommon sorrow,” such as kuebiko (a state of moral exhaustion inspired by acts of horror in the news, which forces you to revise your image of what can happen in this world), kenopsia (the eerie, forlorn atmosphere of a place that’s usually bustling with people but is now abandoned and quiet), chrysalism (an amniotic-like tranquility while a storm rages outside), zenosyne (the sense that time keeps going faster), and pâro (the feeling that no matter what you do it will always be inadequate).

 

PERFORMERS:

  • David Borgo - tenor and soprano saxophones, aerophone
  • Tobin Chodos - piano and keyboard
  • Mackenzie Leighton - acoustic and electric bass
  • Mark Ferber - drum set
  • with special guest:
  • Peter Sprague - electric guitar

 

PROGRAM:

Kuebiko

  • a state of moral exhaustion inspired by acts of horror in the news, which forces you to revise your image of what can happen in this world

Chrysalism

  • an amniotic-like tranquility, similar to how one feels while wrapped in a blanket sitting inside on the couch while a storm rages outside.

Kenopsia

  • the eerie, forlorn atmosphere of a place that’s usually bustling with people but is now abandoned and quiet

Paro

  • the feeling that no matter what you do it will always be inadequate

The Village Covidiots

  • an inversion of Eric Dolphy’s “Out To Lunch,” dedicated to you know who.

Occhiolism

  • the awareness of the limitations of your own perspective

One Step Forward Two Steps Back

  • the feeling that although progress is being made, it produces a reaction that is somehow greater than equal and opposite

Zenosyne 

  • the sense that time keeps going faster

Helwalker - A Folk Opera Audio Drama Ph.D. Dissertation by Barbara Byers

Helwalker is a new opera/audio drama which explores nature, decay and renewal in the context of a classic hero's journey narrative structure. The story centers around Spearwa, a Viking Shieldmaiden who is wounded in battle and separated from her companions. Spearwa is discovered by a Carrion Beetle and tricked into entering the realm of Hel, or the earth, through a door newly opened by the roots of a fallen oak tree. Realizing her predicament, Spearwa flees into an earthen labyrinth, pursued by the Carrion Beetle and a merry band of scavengers. After many adventures beneath the earth's surface, Spearwa emerges, emotionally and magically transformed by her experience.

Event Program (PDF)

Composer Ioannis Mitsialis presents his dissertation recital - Two compositions for solo instruments on Monday, November 22 at 7:00 p.m. in the Conrad Prebys Music Center Experimental Theater. 

 

"In my dissertation recital tonight, two solo pieces of mine are presented, which were composed under different circumstances and time periods. Fractures and permutations for violin and live electronics and Monodromic for solo piano, both explore in their own way the cyclical phenomena, which constitute the fundamental space of my interest in my most recent work. The violin piece makes use of the electronic medium for the first time in my creative practice and relates to the idea of the cycle more at a conceptual level, while the piano piece connects with it more substantially and develops it in its multiple dimensions. These works are the result of my close collaboration with the wonderful soloists Ilana Waniuk (violin) and Kyle Adam Blair (piano), over a long period of time."

Program:

Fractures and permutations for violin and live electronics (2021) - Ioannis Mitsialis

Monodromic for solo piano (2021) - Ioannis Mitsialis

Dissertation Concert featuring electroacoustic compositions with multichannel live-electronic processing and surface feedback sound generation.

 

PROGRAM:

Auscultation – For Percussionist, Fixed Media, Surface Feedback, and Live-Electronic Processing

With Rebecca Lloyd-Jones 
Andrés Gutiérrez Martínez – Live-Electronics


Schnur For String Trio and Live-Electronics (Acousmatic performance of the piece with live-
electronic sound processing)

Lorenzo Derini – Violin
Myriam Garcia Fidalgo – Violoncello
Margarethe Maierhofer-Litschka – Contrabass
Andres Gutierrez Martinez – Live-Electronics

 

Improvisation –– Percussion and Piano with Surface Feedback
Andres Gutierrez Martinez - Piano and Surface Feedback

 

////////////////////////////////////////////

 

The works presented in this concert represent two aspects in my recent work that I have concentrated in for the past two years: Live-Electronic Performance and Surface Feedback.
Surface Feedback is created when a contact speaker and a contact microphone are placed in the same surface – in this case, a drumhead of a bass drum-. I became interested in exploring the manipulation possibilities of such a system, which is somewhat unpredictable given the many different variables that contribute to the sounding result of surface feedback. In Auscultation, I was interested in sonic analogies between the self-generating feedback system, the percussion instruments, and the live electronic processes to create distinct sonic moments -some dynamic, others more static and repetitive. The score allows for some flexibility with regards to the actions of the performer.

 

In Schnur for String Trio and Live-Electronics, I concentrated on the timbral similarities of different string instruments in order to create a gradually unfolding “sonic flow”, which is projected onto the audience space engulfing the listeners in the sound field. The live-electronic manipulations contribute to exaggerate the instrumental actions, while also projecting the sound of the instruments onto the audience space. The electronic performer has some liberty with regards to the modification of the instrumental sounds given a limited space of action. For this realization, I will only perform the live-electronic part in real-time. The instrumental part will be played back from speakers. The piece was recorded in Graz in September 2021 by members of the Schallfeld Ensemble.

 

The last piece is an impromptu improvisation with surface feedback on different instruments: Timpani, piano strings to further showcase the possibilities of the feedback system in a less rigid setting.

Event Program (PDF)

“…If you could only be here with me so I could share with you the happiness of these great poems, they would let you realize what we all now need more urgently: that transience is not separation…” - Rainer Maria Rilke to Adelheid Franziska von der Marwitz, January 14, 1919  (from The Dark Interval, translated and edited by Ulrich Baer)

 

A single reference contained in a book of Rilke’s letters was the catalyst for this program of little-known works for voice and piano from the early to mid-20th Century. The recital features settings of the Belgian poet Emile Verhaeren, drawn from his monumental cycles Les Heures Claires, Les Heures d’Après-midi and Les Heures du Soir, in works written by Nadia Boulanger and Raoul Pugno, and Belgian composer Irène Fuerison. Marion Bauer’s early work, Four Poems, Op. 16, (1924)  with texts by John Gould Fletcher, celebrates and illuminates the exquisite, open beauty of the American West. Rarely heard songs by French composer Elizabeth Claisse and Dutch composer Henriette Bosmans complete the program.  

 

This concert will only be available for viewing live in person or online on March 2nd and will not be available for replay, so make sure to join us at the Conrad Prebys Concert Hall or tune-in online on March 2nd at 7:00 p.m.!

Catch evokes images of snagging, getting momentarily stuck or caught, a zipper getting trapped on fabric and moving in abrupt, jerky bursts, or a marble spiraling downwards in increasingly smaller and tighter circles, its patterns becoming smaller and more restricted until it becomes motionless and trapped.


Seg—a shorthand for “segregation”—is prison slang referring to solitary confinement. While it is considered torture by experts, solitary confinement is frequently used in U.S. prisons as a means to punish and discipline inmates. If subject to this punishment, an inmate is placed in an 8ft.x10ft. cell—equipped with a bed, sink, toilet and virtually nothing else—for months, years and sometimes decades. The absence of meaningful social contact and interaction with others is known to cause adverse psychological effects, including mental illnesses ranging from anxiety, clinical depression, and self-mutilation to suicidal thoughts.

Seg is more a reflection on the human condition than a call for prison reform, however. It would be not too far off to assume that, during the pandemic, pretty much every individual on earth experienced isolation in one form or another. It would be preposterous to compare those experiences to the inhumane treatment the prisoners in seg are subject to, of course. But to the extent we have never been so acutely aware of what isolation does to the human psyche, Seg may be viewed as an invitation to reflect upon the fragility of our existence.


Ilha Grande is an island nestled in the Brazilian state of Rio de Janeiro ringed by beaches, vibrant rainforests, waterfalls, and caverns supporting Atlantic birds, amphibians, and cicadas. This fragile ecosystem depends on its diversity of life in order to survive. The improvisation duo Broken Calligraphy has collected binaural and ambisonic recordings from the island, sending the sounds through electronic resonators, spatializing them in synchronicity with a live graphic score. There is no hierarchical form in this collaborative work, which means the score can also follow or react to the sonic elements, providing an equitable creative space during performance.

 

As improvisatory musicians we actively engage contingency plans in order to balance feedback loops between ourselves and our instruments. Douglas Osmun has taken this idea a step further by developing an AI hub that analyzes socially embodied cognition, creating a sort of symbiotic animism that unites participating improvisors and machine.



Berk Schneider, trombone (berkschneider.com), serves as an advocate for the arts by cultivating research-creation projects that incorporate an interdisciplinary approach to technology and analysis of social meaning-making devices, promoting prescriptive methods that bring communities of musicians closer together. His collaborations are varied, having worked with musicians such as Joshua Bell, Josh Groban, conductors Valery Gergiev, Brad Lubman, Enno Poppe, Carlos Miguel Prieto, Helmuth Rilling, Robert Spano, composers Beat Furrer, Philip Glass, Helmut Lachenmann, Alvin Lucier, actor Alexander Fehling, the Akron, Firelands, and Houston symphonies, Ensemble Modern, Schauspiel Frankfurt, as well as creative director Heiner Goebbels. He is a graduate of Oberlin Conservatory, Rice University, Frankfurt University of Music, and has been a finalist and honorably mentioned in numerous international trombone competitions, including the Robert Marsteller Competition and Lewis Van Haney Philharmonic Prize.

Sophia DiGiovanni, trumpet - Undergraduate Honors Recital

Conrad Prebys Music Center Experimental Theater

Free. RSVP required: http://music.ucsd.edu/tickets

All guests must adhere to University Return to Learn guidelines.

Streaming LIVE for FREE at http://music.ucsd.edu/live


This undergraduate honors recital represents a culmination of the work Sophia has developed on the trumpet over the course of the pandemic. This concert will showcase a variety of tone colors on the trumpet, from triumphant to alone.  She took inspiration from indecision, as experiencing college during a pandemic caused her to feel uncertainty about the future.  She has used trumpet during these times of doubt to move toward present-minded thinking and confidence—the music she created became something tangible in a time of unknowns.  The works in this recital are: Air de Bravoure by Andre Jolivét, Concerto for Trumpet and Piano by Alexander Arutunian, Sonata for Trumpet and Piano by Eric Ewazen, and two new jazz pieces: Seascape and Sunflower Ridge composed by current UC San Diego student, Gino Calgaro.  She will be accompanied by Kyle Adam Blair on the piano for the classical portions of the recital.

Program:

Air de Bravoure (1954) - André Jolivet (1905-1974)

Sonata for Trumpet and Piano (1995) - Eric Ewazen (b. 1954)

Seascape (2020) - Gino Calgaro (b. 2000)

Sunflower Ridge (2022) - Gino Calgaro (b. 2000)

Concerto for Trumpet and Piano (1950) - Alexander Arutunian (1920-2012)

Miguel Zazueta, voice will be presenting his D.M.A. recital, Meeting Halfway, featuring music by Henze, Britten, Muhly, and Zazueta on Saturday, April 30th at 3:00 p.m. in the Conrad Prebys Music Center, Experimental Theater. He will be accompanied by Dr. Kyle Adam Blair, piano and Quartet Nouveau.

 

In this recital I intend to share my personal journey with the concept of intimacy in music. Questioning: What is to be truthful in music? How to be intimate in a musical performance? How can I share what matters to me through a melodic line and a fictional context? Or, as written in the song cycle “Stranger” by Muhly “Is it possible to recover and interpret the past?”.

With all this questions in mind I will present for you four beautiful and very different song cycles:

The elegant “Three Auden Songs” by Hans Werner Henze, the passionate “Seven Sonnets of Michelangelo” by Benjamin Britten, the highly provocative “Stranger” by Nico Muhly, and lastly, “Tres Memorias” of my own authorship.

The accompanists for this recital will be Dr. Kyle Adam Blair in the piano (Henze, and Britten), and Quartet Nouveau (Muhly).

I hope you can join me and my collaborators in this beautiful musical evening.

Kafka Fragments  György Kurtág  
May 2, 2022  7 p.m.  Conrad Prebys Concert Hall, UC San Diego  
Susan Narucki, soprano,  Curtis Macomber, violin 

György Kurtág's Kafka Fragments, Op.24 was completed in 1985 and is a seventy-five-minute work for voice and violin, set to fragments of text from the diaries of Franz Kafka. The work is divided into four parts. The first, third and fourth parts consist primarily of movements that are short in duration and which vary widely in their range of expression. These brief, intense movements are juxtaposed with several extended movements, which serve as a counterbalance, allowing us the opportunity to explore the composer's fantastical sound world more fully.  

I have been performing the piece for over thirty years and am drawn to the limitless range of emotional expression that is created through the fusion of the texts with Kurtág's inexhaustible musical imagination. The piece is a tour de force, exploring the limits of what can be expressed through the combination of voice and violin, an outpouring of wonder, rage, and ecstasy. It is a musical journey that I find to be irresistible.   

On May 2, 2022, I will be presenting the work with my longtime friend and colleague, the American violinist Curtis Macomber, a legendary champion of contemporary music. 

The concert takes place at UC San Diego Department of Music Conrad Prebys Concert Hall at 7 p.m. It is free and open to the public.

TAN-AW

Ilocano, Hiligaynon, Cebuano

(v. to see, to look at, to view, to mind, to contemplate, to be vigilant)

 

In a time where we find ourselves in a place of disillusionment, in a state of flux – with differing energies and a wavering sense of stability, we must take a step back and find resolve within ourselves. As the Philippine national hero, Jose Rizal wrote in one of his plays: “Con el recuerdo del pasado, entro en el porvenir (I enter the future with a memory of the past),” which transformed into the Filipino proverb: “Ang taong hindi marunong lumingon sa pinanggalingan ay hindi makararating sa paroroonan (He who does not know how to look back at where he came from will never get to his destination);” it is in retrospection that we learn to ground ourselves and remember who we were – to which we anchor our aspirations and dreams, as we prepare to propel to attain our full potential.

 

Yet as we move forward, we must constantly remind ourselves that we are finite beings, all fighting against time to an inevitable end. As we begin to see the limits of time, may our memories of the past move us to a position of hope toward a future with endless possibilities, for it is through acknowledging our history as weavers of time that we can begin to live in the present. 

 

TAN-AW seeks to look deeper into ourselves and find our innate purpose as stewards of our bodies and of the earth. As we are easily eclipsed by the noise of voices in and out of our heads, it is challenging to see clearly and be illuminated by our verity. But as the Persian poet Rumi says, “What you seek is seeking you,” may we remember to find solace within ourselves and gain the courage to continue treading our unique paths.

------
Featuring new works by Filipino composers Dave Jimuel Dagta, Jonathan Domingo, Feliz Macahis, and Chaitanya Tamayo, the pieces in the recital program are written in various languages: Cebuano, Ilocano, Ibaloi, Kalanguya, and Tagalog as part of the WIKAWIT initiative of revitalizing Filipino languages through music.

They represent not just Professor Chou's music, but his spirit of cross-cultural collaboration and the partnership between Chinese and Western musicians.  The collection will the basis for an annual "Chou Percussion Commission," given to a UC San Diego graduate composer to compose a piece of music using or inspired by the collection.  

 

In addition to Echoes from the Gorge, "Exploring Legacy" will feature works by Erin Graham, the inaugural Chou Commission recipient, along with music by Lei Liang, a Chou student, and by Edgard Varèse, Professor Chou's mentor. Soloists include flutist Wilfrido Terrazas, contrabassist Mark Dresser, and percussionists Rebecca Lloyd-Jones and Yongyun Zhang.

PLEASE NOTE: As an experimental and new music department, much of our music is very intimate and quiet, for this reason, we request that students preparing concert reports refrain from writing or rustling papers during events.  We also respect the artistry of our musicians and adhere to a strict policy of NO LATE SEATING.  Guests arriving late may be turned away or will be asked to enter between pieces.
