Come explore sleep, dreams and hallucinations through music when the University of Alabama at Birmingham Computer Music Ensemble presents “Hypnagogia,” a free concert featuring 13 all-new electronic and electro-acoustic student compositions.
The show is set for 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 15, in the UAB Mary Culp Hulsey Recital Hall, 950 13th St. South. The Computer Music Ensemble is directed by Associate Professor Scott Phillips, Ph.D., who is also co-director of the Music Technology Program in the UAB Department of Music.
“Hypnagogia is defined as the edge of consciousness. It’s that time between sleeping and wake when all the weird stuff happens,” Phillips said. “Admission is free, so invite all your friends; but get there early because CME concerts have a way of filling up. Hear great music, see creepy video, and we’ll get the video games in there, too. As always, it will be a college music concert like no other. ”
On the program are musical selections by CME members Andy Bostany, John Dewberry, James Tyler Cody, Taylor Goodwin, Paul Kindred, who will play his tubulum in surround sound, and David Smith. CME newcomers Kyle Carpenter, Martin Castor, Zach Driggers, CJ Griffith and Zach Walker will join them in concert. Visit www.UABCME.blogspot.com for more information.
