UCSB graduate Composition student Marc Evans recently traveled to Kwangju, South Korea for the Seoul International Computer Music Festival (SICMF) where he performed his piece for piano and electronics, "Barlicity". "Barlicity" (2017) is a modular work based on the ideas of UCSB Professor of Composition, Clarence Barlow. It is algorithmic in conception, but with some significant intuitive departures, and electronics from a modular synth. 
 
Marc has won numerous awards, including the 2015 Bowdoin International Music Festival Composition Contest, and has collaborated with artists such as Ignition Duo, Hocket Duo and Now Hear Ensemble. A musician and composer since a young age, he chose to pursue his undergraduate degree at Stanford University, where he studied with Jarosław Kapuściński. Following up on his strong interest in computers and interactivity, he then continued on at Stanford with a master's degree in Music, Science and Technology. Marc is currently the recipient of a Chancellor's graduate fellowship at UC Santa Barbara, where he is working on his PhD dissertation and studying composition with Professors Clarence Barlow, Joel Feigin, and Curtis Roads.
 
In addition to composing, Marc is also a pianist, and has been fortunate to study with Thomas Schultz at Stanford and Charles Asche at UC Santa Barbara. He would like to extend profound gratitude to all of the above-mentioned teachers, who have contributed immeasurably to his musical thought and understanding.
