Spend an evening with Sonic Boom 2014 Composer-in-Residence John Oliver, exploring his concepts and music. Topics may include: the physicality of sound, the continuity of consonance and dissonance, spectral harmony, and the limits of perception, as well as the topic of socially-engaged music. Composers and musicians will be particularly interested in the topics of spectral harmony and textural polyphony in the orchestral music, as well as performing and composing with the computer.
Please join us in the VSO School’s Pyatt Hall for this engaging and informative presentation.
John Oliver’s appearance as Composer-in-Residence at the SONIC BOOM Festival is supported by a generous grant from the
SOCAN Foundation.
