12 Nights Miami: Music of Judith Shatin
A profile concert of acclaimed composer Judith Shatin (www.judithshatin.com) will feature a mix of acoustic and electroacoustic music performed by some of South Floridaâ€™s most outstanding performers. These include Christopher Graham (cello), JosÃ© Lopez (piano), Aaron Merritt (clarinet) and Laura Wilcox (viola). The music ranges from For The Birds (cello and electronics made from birdsong from Yellowstone) to Cherry Blossom and a Wrapped Thing; After Hokusai (clarinet and delicate electronics) to Penelopeâ€™s Song (viola and electronics made from weaving sounds) to Chai Variations on Eliahu HaNavi, a set of eighteen variations for solo piano based on the popular tune often sung at the Jewish Sabbath. And, to wrap it up, there will be a performance of Tape Musicâˆž, for any number of participants and electronics made from playing with all kinds of tape â€“ such as duct, packing, etc. The performers are students from the New World School of the Arts and Florida International University, conducted by the composer. Judith Shatin is known for her colorful and dramatic music, called â€˜â€¦ highly inventive music on every level: hugely enjoyable and deeply involving, with a constant sense of surpriseâ€¦â€ by The Washington Post. Her music engages our social, cultural and physical environments. Shatin is no stranger to Miami audiences, having served as composer-in-residence for the Deering Estate Chamber Players series for several years, with additional performances at the Bass and Wolfsonian Museums.
