Barry Schrader on KXLU's Trilogy, Wednesday, September 16


Barry Schrader, who's upcoming farewell performance is set for Saturday, September 24, will be sharing a selection of his works on KXLU's Trilogy program this coming Wednesday, September 16. Two electronic works featuring the Buchla 200 Electric Music Box will be featured.

Place: KXLU 88.9 FM, Los Angeles, streaming on the web

For this show, I’ve selected a variety of works of mine spanning a 45-year period, most of which are not commercially available. The first will be a student work from 1968 for soprano and piano, Signature for Tempo, based on the poem cycle of the same name by Archibald MacLeish, with Maurita Phillips-Thornburgh, soprano, and the late Leonid Hambro on piano.

"Next will be two electronic works composed on the Buchla 200 (Electric Music Box) system."

"The first of these analog works will be the complete Death of the Red Planet Suite, featuring music from the 1973 film and second will be Moon-Wings from Moon-Whales and other Moon-Songs (1982-1983) based on poems by Ted Hughes."

"The second movement, Jig, from Dance Suite for Harp and Computer (1987), composed for and performed by Susan Allen will follow. This is presented as a tribute to Susie, who passed this September 7th."

"Finally, I’ll present two more recent computer music works, Monkey’s Magic Dance - Jumping Buddha’s Palm from Monkey King (2005-2007) [see this post here on MATRIXSYNTH for some details on the initial release], and Chinese Kaleidoscopes, from The Barnum Museum (2009-2012) [see this post], based on the short story by Steven Millhauser."
