American Roots Music Ensemble (Mus 109)
Kenji Bunch, Director
Current Sounds Collective
This flexible ensemble of 2-10 musicians with open instrumentation will work closely with members of Reed College’s Ensemble in Residence, Portland new music group Fear No Music. Over the course of the semester, participants will prepare selected works of 21st century chamber music for public performance. In addition, students will be encouraged to engage in this ensemble creatively as composer-performers, who may be called upon to compose short works, to collaborate on group compositions, improvise, interpret graphic scores, and incorporate electronic elements into a largely acoustic context. Register for MUS109 (chamber music) and contact Monica Ohuchi (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information or questions.
Can I register for lessons or an ensemble if I'm also registered for 4.5 credits?
