Daniel Webbon

University of Washington DMA candidate Daniel Webbon presents an evening of recent compositions and collaborations. His work ranges from traditionally notated modern classical composition to freely improvised experimental music and draws on ideas from contemporary literature and continental philosophy.

The concert will feature works for piano and voice, solo flute, and string quartet, as well as a collaboration between drummer Matt Carr and dancer Alethea Alexander. The evening will conclude with the premier of Daniel’s most recent work, This vast southern empire; a sprawling improvisational score for mixed ensemble and voice that draws on academic and historical texts dealing with Southern reconstruction and identity.
