The second day of the 27th annual Ussachevsky Memorial Festival of Electro Acoustic Music features special guest composer/violinist Mari Kimura, Professor of Music, Integrated Composition, Improvisation and Technology program at UCI and Graduate Faculty, The Juilliard School. The day’s events start at 3 p.m. when Ms. Kimura will lead a lecture/demonstration entitled Tradition of Revolution – Extended Technique & Interactive Computer Technology for the Violin in Lyman Hall.

At 8 p.m. joining Ms. Kimura for the evening concert are the Eclipse Quartet (Sara Parkins and Sarah Thornblade, violin; Alma Fernandez, viola; Maggie Parkins, cello), as well as Ms. Kimura, violin; Tom Flaherty, cello; Joti Rockwell, guitar and Genevieve Feiwen Lee, piano; in music by Ms. Kimura, Eve Beglarian, Saad Haddad and Von Hansen.

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 our equipment and the founding of this series.
