MTA Composer Forums presents Forrest Larson, composer, violist and electronic musician. He has composed both instrumental and electronic music. His work includes both strictly composed music and live improvised electronic music. Instrumental works include music for string orchestra, string quartet, as well as pieces for unaccompanied violin, viola, and cello. He has had a life-long love of old pre-digital analog electronic instruments, and of collecting "found sounds" from both natural as well as urban landscapes. Some of his works combine electronic sounds and live acoustic instruments such as cello, flute and tuba. Seabird Fantasy, commissioned by the MIT Wind Ensemble (2007), incorporates sounds of Eastern seabirds with winds and percussion. Other work includes electronic scores for abstract films by Kate Matson and for solo dancer. 5pm, Lewis Music Library, 14E-109. Free. A reception follows.
