I’ll give a 20 minute talk for the Leonardo Society Art & Science Rendezvous (LASER) on Berkeley campus this Wednesday. Info here: http://www.scaruffi.com/leonardo/aug2013b.html. The meeting starts at 6:30 PM, I’ll talk around 7:30. Free admission and all are welcome.
“Slow Music in a Manic World”
Robert Rich discusses the context for his personal style of introverted music, tracing a lineage of sound focused on a listener’s state of mind rather than the composer’s ego. He finds Pauline Oliveros’ phrase ‘Deep Listening’ more useful than Eno’s term ‘ambient’. He’ll mix a casual overview of antecedents with many musical samples.
