22nd Annual Exhibition of Art by Michigan Prisoners: Opening Events

10:00am, Duderstadt Center (Media Union), Gallery

Tuesday-Saturday @ 10:00 AM - 7:00 PM
Sunday & Monday @ 12:00 PM - 6:00 PM

The Annual Exhibition of Art by Michigan Prisoners is one of the largest exhibitions of art by incarcerated artists in the country. Each year, faculty, staff and students from U-M travel to correctional facilities across Michigan and select work for the exhibition while providing feedback and critique that strengthens artists’ work and builds community around art making inside prisons.

Gallery opening at 10:00 AM and opening reception at 7:00 PM with guest speakers from U-M, the Michigan Department of Corrections, and artists from previous exhibitions.

The 22nd Annual Exhibition of Art by Michigan Prisoners is supported by the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs. Free - no tickets required

Performing Arts Technology Seminar: Jeff Treviño, Cal State Monterey Bay

5:00pm, Earl V. Moore Building, Chip Davis Technology Studio

“Two Fists + Two Feet: Concretist Experiments in Algorithmic Composition for Carillon”

Treviño says, “During the past four years, in collaboration with carillonist and contemporary carillon music champion Tiffany Ng, I have created several new algorithmically composed works for carillon, which she has widely performed at a variety of international festivals and concerts. Each work relies on a different experiment with generative pattern, and all have been realized using the Abjad API for Formalized Score Control, an extension of the widely-used Python programming language that enables composers to create scores via an object-oriented model of common practice western music notation. In this presentation, I demonstrate my code-based compositional process and describe the generative mechanisms underlying my work, which range from historical composition techniques--such as prolation canon and arpeggiation based on harmonic verticalities--to novel conceptual experiments, such as metaphors of rhythmic noise and melodic nesting via search algorithms. I place these abstract materials and developmental strategies in discourse with the instrument’s relatively more concrete physical and timbral restrictions, to frame the tension between abstract pattern and listened or performed physicality as a restorative force in my compositional practice.”. Free - no tickets required

Musicology Lecture: Professor Tomie Hahn, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

5:00pm, Earl V. Moore Building, Glenn E. Watkins Lecture Hall

“Sensibilities across Disciplines: Music, Art, Creativity”

Given the “sensory turn” in contemporary scholarship, how might scholars and practitioners reach across interdisciplinary boundaries to broaden our research and our creative practice, and to expand knowledge building? How might it shape how we write about experience? In this presentation Tomie Hahn shares examples of her scholarly and creative work to illustrate points of departure. Free - no tickets required

Carillon Symposium Opening Talk: Jeffrey Treviño, Cal State Monterey Bay

7:30pm, Earl V. Moore Building, Chip Davis Technology Studio

"Two Fists + Two Feet: Concretist Experiments in Algorithmic Composition for Carillon"

Part of U-M’s Bicentennial celebration, this is the opening talk of the 2017 Carillon Symposium entitled “Resonance & Remembrance: An Interdisciplinary Bell Studies Symposium,” which takes place across the University, March 31-April 2. For more information and to register please visit: myumi.ch/Jy0RM

During the past four years, in collaboration with carillonist and contemporary carillon music champion Tiffany Ng, I have created several new algorithmically composed works for carillon, which she has widely performed at a variety of international festivals and concerts. Each work relies on a different experiment with generative pattern, and all have been realized using the Abjad API for Formalized Score Control (Baca, Oberholtzer, Trevino; 1997-present), an extension of the widely used Python programming language that enables composers to create scores via an object-oriented model of common practice western music notation. In this presentation, I demonstrate my code-based compositional process and describe the generative mechanisms underlying my work, which range from historical composition techniques — such as prolation canon and arpeggiation based on harmonic verticalities — to novel conceptual experiments, such as metaphors of rhythmic noise and melodic nesting via search algorithms. I place these abstract materials and developmental strategies in discourse with the instrument’s relatively more concrete physical and timbral restrictions, to frame the tension between abstract pattern and listened or performed physicality as a restorative force in my compositional practice.
