Miranda Cuckson to perform a solo for violin on 28 November at Hunter College

Miranda Cuckson will premiere a new set of violin solos from composers at the Graduate Center and Hunter College at 7pm in Hunter College’s Lang Auditorium on Monday 28 November.  If you can make it out for a listen, keep your ear open during my piece for the moment when she metamorphoses vibrato into acoustic beating.

Open Call for Singers

to participate in a rehearsal of the sound sculpture

Tone (excerpt)

Pizza and beer will be served!

Time: 7-9pm Monday 22 August 2016.

Place: The 8-Story “Stairwell C” at The Graduate Center, 5th Avenue and 34th St., Manhattan

RSVP: danielfox@thoughtstoodefinite.com

The rehearsal: Join your voice in sustaining a single tone over an extended period of time by passing it between groups of singers positioned over the eight stories of a spacious and resonant stairwell. A slow undulation in the sustained tone is articulated as the sound moves vertically through space, passed between singers.

The music: Tone (excerpt) lives on the border between process and object. A single vocalized tone cycles between spatially separated groups of singers, slowly shifting the timbre and location of the sound in a richly resonant acoustic space. Tone (excerpt) moves precariously through time; the same unchanging tone is perpetually remade through different voices.

Here is the score.
