William Price, Monday, March 15

Composer William Price spoke in the Gallery last night.  His talk, “Composition, Creativity, and the Concerns of the Professional Composer” addressed what it means to be a contemporary composer, but he spoke about working in other creative disciplines as well.

He  played some interesting excerpts of his compositions — including a piece for saxophone quartet (!) and another piece based on the fiction of Dashiell Hammett.

William Price and Chris Watts will present a selection of electronic music and animation tonight (March 16) in the Underground.  I heart electronica, so I’ll be there!

The talk was sponsored by the SLU Department of Music and the Birdsong Endowment for Music.
