Computers and software and memory, oh my! Composer Christopher Tignor loves to experiment with sound, and not just simply in the written score- he samples and transforms live performances with the signature computer software he designed himself. Core Memory Unwound, his new album, refers to memory- both the computer and human kind- as he takes apart live performances to create a sort of memory portrait. Violinist Colin Jacobsen and pianist Margaret Kampmeier perform stirring melodies by Tignor, and the added computer effects are reminiscent of, well, memories of a past, earlier computer age. Also tonight, music of John Luther Adams and Joanna Newsom.
The first hour of Evening Music is available for streaming soon after 8pm.
