Student Composer Has Work Selected for Performance at International Conference
M.O. Abbott, DMA student in Composition, has had a composition accepted for performance at the International Computer Music Conference in Shanghai.
The work, entitled "I Said Top-Top," was produced with DISSCO, software developed at the U of I Computer Music Project.
According to one adjudicator "...the piece has a very established composition resource, the timbral and spatial results are articulated in a way that creates surprise and maintains attention." And another offered that "[t]he piece has a very distinct sound world and a very creative approach to sound organization."
M.O. is also the composer-winner of the 21st Century Piano Composition Competition. With pianist Whitney Ashe as performer, his compositions will be featured in concert in Foellinger Great Hall on February 15, 2018.
