NYCEMF at Elebash Hall CUNY

Christina Giacona and Patrick Conlon perform Retro Rhapsody in April at the New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival at City University of New York's Elebash Recital Hall.
Retro Rhapsody is a mysterious and evocative concerto for Bb clarinet and live electronics triggered through MaxMSP or Ableton Live! The entire composition slowly revolves around a central structure of motivic and thematic material without ever fully revealing the musical ideas that form the foundation of the piece. By avoiding both development and clear presentation of the thematic material, Retro Rhapsody acts as a series of windows into the evolution of a musical idea. Dedicated to Christina Giacona.
