Buffalo State Percussion Ensemble

with the Buffalo State Digital Music Ensemble

Part of Student Ensembles 2011-2012

Wednesday, April 18, 2012
7:30 pm

The Buffalo State Percussion Ensemble, led by Music Department chair Brad Fuster, will perform Dwayne Engh’s “Effect of Friction on the Distance Between Cells;” Steve Riley’s “Storm Warning and Dance”; and Mick Rossi’s “Periphery,” among other pieces

The nine-member Digital Music Ensemble will makes it debut with popular selections from the jazz group Weather Report, along with a few original compositions. The two ensembles will wrap up the concert with a joint performance of Duke Ellington’s “Caravan.”

For the creative-minded, game controllers have other uses than just connecting players to the latest Xbox or Wii sensation. Members of Buffalo State’s Digital Music Ensemble use game controllers to make and control musical sounds in real time.

The newly formed group also employs other popular technological devices such as smartphones and iPads, along with state-of-the-art electronic instruments, to create music that ranges from avant-garde sonicscapes to classical electronic works.

The concert is free and open. Eveyone is welcome to attend.
