Southland Ensemble presents: Soundings
July 15, 2016 8:00 pm| $18
Southland Ensemble presents a concert of music from the early issues of Soundings Press, an important and influential journal of experimental music published by composer Peter Garland from 1971- 1990. Program will feature compositions by:
JOHANNA MAGDALENA BEYER
STEPHEN L. MOSKO
Copies of many of the early issues of Soundings will be available for perusal after the concert.
Soundings came to be in November 1970 in a workshop taught by Dick Higgins. From the start it was seen as encompassing more than just “local talent”, and so contributions were solicited from many composers living in California. … (It) arose from a feeling that the work of musicians needed a much wider circulation than that afforded by current publications.
“… old music can be just as inspiring as the traditional image of the Western composer, forever pushing forward into explored territory. Both deserve equal attention in a magazine such as this.”
– Peter Garland
