The 27th annual Ussachevsky Memorial Festival of Electro Acoustic Music features special guest composer/violinist Mari Kimura. Joining Ms. Kimura for the Friday’s events are The Smudges (Jeff Gauthier, violin; Maggie Parkins, cello, with Alex Cline, percussion), plus solos by Cynthia Fogg, viola; Maggie Parkins, cello and others in music by Ms. Kimura, Bill Alves, Jeff Gauthier and more.

The festival is named after Vladimir Ussachevsky (1911-1990), Pomona ’35, who was a pioneer in the field of electronic music and co-founder of the Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center in New York. He left a bequest to the college to support activities in the field of electronic music, which has funded much of the Music Department’s equipment and the founding of this series.

The festival continues on Saturday.
