Dean's Lecture Award presentation: Patricia Julien, "Stories About Composing"

Mar 21, 2018
4:30 pm to 5:30 pm
Waterman Memorial Lounge

Dean's Lecture Award presentation: "Stories about Composing" - In this presentation, Professor Julien will talk about her process when composing a new work, particularly when that work involves words. Words influence her writing in several ways: in theatre, trying to create environments or characters with fine distinctions such as "stealthy but not menacing"; in art song, setting poetry for voice and accompaniment; and through literature that sparks the need to respond to something in sound. The presentation will include recorded and live performances. Julien will be joined by guest artists Chris Caswell, Abby Sperry, and Tom Cleary. Free and open to the public.
