Listening to New Music

Posted in Music on August 26, 2008 by HD Artists

On our next Listening to New Music on August 31 at 11 am SLT we offer the music of Mary Jane Leach.

MARY JANE LEACH is a composer/performer whose work reaveals a fascination with the physicality of sound, its acoustic properties and how they interact with space. In many of her works Leach creates an other-worldly sound using different, combination, and interference tones; these are tones not actually sounded by the performers, but avoustic phenomena arising from her deft manipulation of intonation and timbral qualities. The result is striking music which has a powerful effect on listeners.
