Conference - Gérard Grisey, the spectral moment, and its legacy

Sun, 2014-10-19 (All day) - Tue, 2014-10-21 (All day)
Price: For more information please consult the Grisey Conference website

The premature death of French composer Gérard Grisey (1946–98) cut short one of the most productive and creative musical careers of the twentieth century. Starting in the 1970s, Grisey and other musicians associated with the ensemble l’Itinéraire developed a radically new musical approach that took the physical characteristics of sounds (their acoustical spectra) as a source of inspiration.
