CCM ensemble-in-residence Percussion Group Cincinnati presents a musical tribute to composer Herbert Brün, a pioneer of electronic and computer music, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of his birth. Featuring music by Brün, Eugene O’Brien and Frederic Rzewski, the free concert is at 8 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 28, 2018, in CCM’s Cohen Family Studio Theater.
Recently inducted into the Percussive Arts Society Hall of Fame, Percussion Group Cincinnati was founded in 1979 and consists of CCM faculty members Allen Otte (Emeritus, 2017), James Culley and Russell Burge.
The performance includes Brün’s More Dust with Percussion, which was originally composed as an electronic music piece, but the composer added percussion at Percussion Group Cincinnati’s request. The ensemble performed this piece during its first concert at CCM in 1979. The concert also includes Brün’s Touch and Go, which Otte will perform on a single tabletop with a large array of both traditional and unusual instruments. Watch a YouTube video of Otte performing the piece in a previous concert.
