Press release

From Barry Schrader's Newsletter:
... a special screening of five newly-restored films by Adam Beckett (1950-1979) at REDCAT in Los Angeles on Sunday, October 8 at 2:00 P.M. Included on this program is the 1973 groundbreaking animation Heavy-Light for which I composed the score.
On Sunday, October 28, Footnotes Dance Theater will present work choreographed to my music as part of the 5 x 5 Dance Festival at the Carol Autorino Center at Saint Joseph College in West Hartford, CT. The 5 X 5 Dance Festival, one of the most distinctive presentations of dance in New England and this evening features performances by five different collegiate dance ensembles.
This year SCREAM (The Southern California Resource for Electro-Acoustic Music) celebrates its 20th anniversary. I started SCREAM as a consortium back in 1986, and it has since become a curated series. But this year we're bringing back all of the composers of the original consortium for a special SCREAM Reunion concert. This program will take place at the Los Angeles Harbor College Music Recital Hall on Saturday, November 4, at 8:00 P.M. As part of this celebration, I'll be premiering the solo electronic version of my work Wu Xing: Cycle of Destruction. Also on the concert will be live/electro-acoustic and studio works by Roger Bourland, David Bradfield, Tom Flaherty, Frederick Lesemann, Samuel Magrill, Rodney Oakes, and Mark Waldrep. Featured performers include violist Cynthia Fogg, oboist Richard Kravchak, clarinettist William Powell, and pianist Susan Svrcek.
On Thursday, November 9 at La Salle University in Philadelphia, there will be a special concert of electro-acoustic music inspired by plants. The Gardens of Cleito from Lost Atlantis will be presented as part of this event which takes place at 1:00 P.M. in Olney Hall 102.
