Herbert Brün was a pioneer of electronic and computer music, with particular interests in cybernetics and language, who also sought to apply principals of composition to social theory. As a professor at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaigne he was a highly influential teacher to a generation of American composers. Tonight’s concert is a tribute by some of his students, performing works by themselves and their teacher. Herbert Brün: Infraudibles for quintet; Susan Parenti: The Poet Retracts; Mark Enslin: Unentitled for speaking pianist; Arun Chandra: An Untitled Poem in Sixteen Stanzae; Ben Kapp: Three Poems by Gertrude Stein for voice and two percussionists.
Each month, Nonsequitur and a community of like-minded organizations and artists present ten concerts of adventurous and experimental music in the gorgeous Chapel Performance Space at the Good Shepherd Center: contemporary/post-classical composition, free improvisation and the outer limits of jazz, electronic/electroacoustic music, new instruments, phonography, sound art, and other innovative musics.
