60 X 60—A One-Hour Electronic Music Extravaganza
Featuring New Works by Faculty and Students
Charles Mason, faculty host
60x60 is a one-hour music extravaganza featuring one-minute slices of new music, mixed back-to-back for an indescribable sensory experience. Trendtrekking suggests “Think of it as a night of artistic hors d’oeuvres!” The New York Times exclaims, “it’s this kind of madness that makes the cultural world go ’round…” Conceived by an international consortium of composers, 60x60 events are presented around the globe featuring new music by emerging and established composers, sequenced by an international committee in an audience-friendly order. “It’s like a Whitman’s sampler of the contemporary new music scene,” says the Times Union. Works by faculty composers Dorothy Hindman, Charles Norman Mason and Juraj Kjos are featured on the one-hour mix presented here, originally dubbed as the 2012 60x60 Presenters Mix. As a special treat, there will be an encore presentation of five 60-second works by Frost School of Music students Kelly Garner, Richard Yates, Rodrigo Bussad, Jackson Parodi, and Daniel Choi who created their works in the Frost School’s MTC 506 Digital Editing and Sequencing class last spring.
