Duende Quartet - Thursday, November, 17, 2011

The Department of Music presents the Duende Quartet. Bassist Josh Schwartzman, percussionists Mark Merella and Sam "Seguito" Turner and Harry Appelman on piano/keyboards, has been chosen twice by Jazz at Lincoln Center to tour internationally under the auspices of the U.S. Department of State's American Music Abroad program. The Duende Quartet plays Latin Jazz with a nod to the Blue Note sound of the '60s. In a unique small group setting (with piano, bass and two hand percussionists) the group captures the vibe of the jazz combo while using the rhythms of a Cuban conjunto. Duende's music strikes an inviting balance between the spontaneity of jazz improvisation and the infectious rhythms of the Caribbean.

8 pm, Fine Arts Recital Hall. $7 general admission, $3 seniors, free for students, free with a UMBC ID. Tickets will be available in early fall 2011.

BLINK - Wednesday, November 30, 2011

Have you ever looked at a work of art and wondered “What would that sound like?” Or, while listening to music, think “What would that look like?”

UMBC’s student composers and members of the New Music Ensemble are debuting a new concert series that explores the visual and aural results of creative inspiration. Join us for a concert of new compositions inspired by works in the current exhibit Image Transfer: Pictures in a Remix Culture at the Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture. Each 1-2 minute piece, performed by faculty and members of the New Music Ensemble, will take place in front of the photo that inspired it. Interspersed will be electro-acoustic works by students and faculty from the project 60 in 60. Please come and experience this exciting and unique performance but be prepared – each piece will be over in a blink of the eye.
