Dewar will perform his composition “Anabolism (2016) for Soprano Saxophone and Live Biofeedback Electronics” and discuss the use of biofeedback in experimental electronic music since the mid-1960s.
The creation of this piece was supported by a grant from Anthony Braxton’s Tri-Centric Foundation. Dewar was a member of Braxton’s 12+1-Tet and Bill Dixon’s orchestra, among many other collaborations. He teaches at the University of Alabama and has published widely on creative music.
Soundwaves launches our partnership with the PianoSpheres series with this show. Many of the performers at PianoSpheres will give slightly reduced previews of their Colburn School programs (one hour, rather than a full evening’s concert with intermission) at the Library. As always, the show will be at 7:30pm with free admission. Susan Svrcek‘s performance will feature Frederic Rzewski‘s epic The People United Will Never Be Defeated.
