PA Arts Sunday - September 6, 2009 -- Refugium at UAA This Evening

Juneau's cutting edge CrossSound Festival will conclude its 2009 late summer concert series this evening, with its sole Anchorage concert. At 8:00 this evening, the musicians will present six works by three composers. The concert will be at the Recital Hall at the University of Alaska Anchorage. The hall is located in the Fine Arts Building, at the far eastern edge of the campus.

Here is the program:

  • Matthew Burtner (Anchorage/VA)
    Kuik (aria) (2006)
    for voice, percussion, computer sound and video
  • John Luther Adams (Fairbanks)
    Make Prayers to the Raven (1996/98)
    fl, vln, hp (or pno), vlc, percussion
  • Matthew Burtner (Anchorage/VA)
    Broken Drum (2003)
    automobile brake drum and computer
  • Owen Underhill (Vancouver, B.C.)
    Sakalaka (2007, CrossSound Commission)
    vln, vcl, fl, cl, tbn, pno
  • Matthew Burtner (Anchorage/VA)
  • Metasax&DRUMthings + ThinkThank, Mindcam (2006)
    metasax, drum kit, computer interaction, snowboard video
  • Portals of Distortion (1999)
    version for tenor saxophone + 8 prerecorded tenor saxophones

As I wrote last week, this is an important concert, and one PA highly recommends. Tickets will be sold at the door. The cost is $15.00, or $10.00 for students.

Here are works from YouTube, by each of the three composers:
