Music / Noise / Sound / Silence

The timing couldn't be any more perfect with this upcoming performance from DU's own experimental music group, The Playground Ensemble:

Music / Noise / Sound / Silence
When: Thursday, February 4th, 2010 at 7:30pm
Where: Hamilton Recital Hall, Newman Center for the Performing Arts
2344 E. Iliff Ave, Denver CO (303) 871-6412
Tickets: $18 adults, $16 seniors, and free for students from any school and DU/ID

What is music? When is sound just noise? The attempts of 20th-century composers to grapple with these questions generated some of the most important musical innovations of the era. In this concert, the Playground presents music that redefines these terms and examines the boundaries between them.

The performance will include:
Profilo Sintetico-Musicale di Marinetti by Silvio Mix
Suite for Percussion by Lou Harrison
4'33" by John Cage
Sound Patterns by Pauline Oliveros
Clapping Music by Steve Reich
Dots, Lines, Zigzags by Sofia Gubaidulina
The Dead Man by John Zorn
Tabula Rasa by Einstürzende Neubauten

Artists-in-Residence at DU's Lamont School of Music, The Playground Enemble is a force for new music in the Rocky Mountain region. The group strives to provide stimulating performances, expand common perceptions of both contemporary music and the chamber ensemble, and nurture a community around this music that we love.
