Full Circle Ensemble

This class will focus on the performance and reinterpretation of sampled works. The goal of this class will be to develop a unique system to approaching material as it was originally conceived and recorded, as it was refashioned in a sampled setting and in a third setting that will bring the composition “full circle” to be fleshed out in a different way. Class time will be spent focusing on a limited number of influential sample based composer from a particular region of the world. We will also be adding student compositions influenced by sampling techniques.

Shorter Course Description: Learn to play sampled material in a hybrid/live/sampling setting. Each semester will focus on the composers of a different region of the world.
