Playing In The Band: Performer/Composers Speak

Saturday, April 4th, 2009

LPR Gallery Bar – 4:30 to 6:00

Playing In The Band: Performer/Composers Speak
Panel Discussion

Sawako – solo laptop composer/performer
Cornelius Dufallo – Director and violinist, Ne(x)tworks
Marc Dancigers – guitarist, NOW Ensemble; MATA alumni
Annie Gosfield – composer/performer; MATA alumni
Richard Carrick – Co-Director and pianist, Either/Or; MATA alumni

Moderator: Chris McIntyre – MATA Artistic Director; trombonist, Ne(x)tworks

One of the most powerful currents in today’s concert music scene is the renewed prominence of composer/performers — creators who interpret their own music, bringing new life to a once-dormant tradition. The 2009 MATA Festival features a number of such works, most often in groups committed to presenting the work of their ensemble colleagues.

Moderated by MATA Artistic Director Chris McIntyre, PLAYING IN THE BAND will informally examine current trends in the field, their relationship to past attitudes, and how they inform the panelists’ work. In addition to the artists taking part in the 2009 Festival (Sawako, Dufallo, Dancigers, and McIntyre), the panel includes MATA alumni Annie Gosfield and Richard Carrick, both of whom have forged successful careers writing and playing their own music.
