J.Mayall – Concert Showcase/Live Recording

At the end of this week I am putting on a concert of original music that I have written over the past couple of years as part of my PhD. I have been exploring the possibilities of cross-genre hybridity in new music composition!

The concert will take place on April 7th 2013 from 7:30pm in the Gallagher Academy of Performing Arts, University of Waikato. Entry is free.

This concert showcase on April 7th will feature all new compositions written during this period of research, featuring ‘The Norse Suite’ for viola and cello, ‘The foggy field’ for trumpet and turntables, ‘Push for Miles’ for electric bass and backing, and ‘They say a word is dead’ – a suite for chamber orchestra, among other pieces. Top-class musicians from across the North Island will be coming together in Hamilton for this concert (and live recording).

Presented with the support of The University of Waikato Conservatorium of Music, Gallagher Academy of Performing Arts and PUMA NZ.

The production would not be possible with out the help of numerous talented people like: Brad Thomson, ACLX, Mannell Audio, ChasingTime Productions, Luminis Limited, Joe Hitchcock, and all the musicians who have given of their time and skill.

I am also looking into the possibilities of streaming the concert live! Still have to work through the particulars of this, but if it happens you will be able to watch it here.

(More details about the stream to come!)
