The work of four composers, Rick Burkhardt, Jason Federmeyer, Michelle Lou and Laura Steenberge, who all earned doctorates in The Golden State.

Rick Burkhardt’s Great Hymn of Thanksgiving
A table set for three where the sounds of conversation have been replaced by fragments of news reports from Iraq, scraps from the Army prayer manual, invented Arab folk tales, and a recurring State of Emergency pointing everywhere and leading nowhere.

Jason Federmeyer’s compressions’s reflexive extractions (commission and world premiere)
An incredibly detailed bit of time-carving, shaped into a wonderfully bristling textural landscape.

Michelle Lou’s untitled three-part construction
Cell phone vibrators, socket wrenches, cassette tape recorders, a comb + Cullen’s bass chops.

Laura Steenberge’s Perseus Slays the Gorgon Medusa
Clouds of talcum powder, swinging cymbals and a rendition of Mack the Knife to close.
