Oberlin Contemporary Music Ensemble (SEAMUS 2009)April 27th, 2009
Another fantastic group that performed at the SEAMUS conference were students from the Oberlin Contemporary Music Ensemble from the Oberlin Conservatory of Music in Ohio.
The works performed included Bright Days of Little Sunlight by Peter Swendsen, and The Death of the Moth by Oberlin professor Tom Lopez, among several others.
Not only were these phenominal musicicians, but they performed incredibly unique and diverse pieces with elements of live and pre-recorded electronics, and some with video. I personally believe that these types of pieces will become increasingly popular as technology continues to reach the hands of composers, and it will even go as far as to redefine live performance in the “classical” musical genre.
