I pleased to announce that this upcoming Wednesday, March 6, CESSA will be presenting its fourth, and final lecture of the year, with Terri Hron on "Playing with technology: Collaborative games in the creation of the mixed electroacoustic music of Bird on a Wire". In this lecture, performer Terri Hron will discuss and play excerpts of the pieces from her album Bird on a Wire - Flocking Patterns, presented in 5.1.

Recorder player and composer Terri Hron comfortably migrates from performance to composition, exploring acoustic and electronic sounds in both written and improvised situations. As a performer, Bird on a Wire is Terri's ongoing project to commission, perform and record new pieces for recorder and electronics. The first album was released in 2009 and the second, Flocking Patterns, was premiered and recorded in 5.1 surround in 2011. Terri's compositions span the range from chamber orchestra to acousmatic pieces. Her current projects include Sharp Splinter, a cycle for instruments and electronics based on her family archive, and a new work for Spiritus Chamber Choir, Calgary. Her own experience as a performer and her interest in working on individuality has led Terri to research creative collaboration between composers and performers, especially within settings involving technology. Terri is the recipient of numerous scholarships, prizes and residencies, including: the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, le Conseil des Arts et des Lettres du Québec, the Banff Centre, the Canada Council for the Arts, the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Music and Media Technologies, the Atlantic Center for the Arts and the Alberta Foundation for the Arts.

The event is free to attend, and open to students and faculty from all departments, and to the public. The lecture begins at 5pm. Please do not be late. There will be refreshments in the music lounge following the lecture.
