New music revisited

Nov 25, 2011

This week we talk about music. New music to be exact. And if you think new music means recently released albums, keep listening as we revisit a conversation I had with Patrick David Clark, who was a resident composer at the Mizzou New Music Festival this summer. And hang on till the end of the show for a Sonic ID from one of Columbia’s more memorable citizens.

Patrick David Clark is the 2011 Sinquefield Composition Prize Winner and was one of eight composers selected to write a piece for musical group Alarm Will Sound this summer. But really, this is a conversation about music. I started by asking him, what is new music anyway?

And if you missed the new music festival fear not, you can still get your new music fix on at the MU new music ensemble concert December 5.
