Coming Up Events

  • December 2 2013
  • 7:00 pm
  • 4485 NW 187th Ave.  Portland, OR  97229
  • I’m presenting a talk on composing for and/or about place. I will discuss how one approaches composing about or for a place.  Included will be types of places that I’ve composed for, their impetus’ and the ways composers can purposefully integrate the elements of place into a work: primarily source material and point of view. How am I approaching my current commission for Cottonwood Canyon State Park? Additionally, I will talk about the role composing music has as an advocacy tool for the places  we compose about, and also the role our pieces can have as social commentary – media art and performance art embrace this role, but how can we as composers? I see this as burgeoning opportunity.
