Winter 2021 ECM Description:
Small Ensemble Chamber Works including open instrumentation pieces by Julius Eastman, John Cage, and others
Any student is invited to learn a Contemporary Solo Work selected by Dr. Gibson & Performer
We will record/rehearse using Jamulus, Zoom, and other methods
Learning to play with film using click-track is one of the most useful tools as a professional musician—especially for musicians in the SoCal area. This quarter, we will form small chamber groups that will accompany scenes from silent films using music written by your UCSB composer colleagues!
Performers will also set a scene from the silent film using selections from their current repertoire. Dr. Gibson will coach you through picking selections of your own repertoire or improvisations that could accompany the scene you are given in the way pianists/organists would accompany silent films in the ‘20s through improvisation and/or any selections of sheet music they had at their fingertips.
All instruments/voice types welcome and encouraged!
If you are a music performance major or music composition major, you can email the undergraduate advisor at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive an add code.
All other students must receive approval to register from Dr. Gibson. Please email her to receive an approval code at email@example.com. If you are outside the music department, an audition may be required.
