The Gassmann Electronic Music Series presents a concert featuring a range of works for piano and electronics curated by composer Matt Schumaker and pianist Eric Huebner. Among other pieces, Huebner will premiere Schumaker’s new work Arcs above the Earth (after Michael Anderson), which evokes astronaut Michael Anderson, who died in 2003 on Shuttle Columbia.

Huebner also performs Schumaker’s Temporary structures, a piece combining piano music with computer graphics to transform musical gestures into virtual sculptural forms. In the second half, Huebner takes on Roger Reynold’s ACTIONS, a large-scale work exploring intimate and responsive relationships between the pianist’s performance and the algorithmic process that stem from and elaborate this material.

Schumaker is a composer and Assistant Professor at UC Santa Cruz, who creates conceptually-driven music arising from computer-assisted composition and computer music research. Reynolds is an acclaimed, Pulitzer-prize winning composer and University Professor at UC San Diego. Huebner is a New York Philharmonic-endowed piano chair and an Associate Professor of Music at University at Buffalo (SUNY) whose vibrant and exacting performances have been hailed by critics on both coasts.

This event is supported by UCI Illuminations.
