The Arts & Sciences Orchestra is more than an ensemble. It’s a community.

Our first Thyagaraja Festival was awesome! Here’s some pics from the performances at the Apollo Theatre right here in Oberlin, including Mudikondan Ramesh and friends. 

Springtime in Oberlin!

Senior Symposium-ers: Rhys Hertafeld

This Friday, the Senior Symposium will take you on an afternoon-long journey through the important research of seniors at the college & conservatory. We’re catching up with some conservatory-specific students to give you a sneak peek!

Today’s feature is Rhys Hertafeld, whose project examines the physics of sound in Grisey’s Jour, Contre-Jour. 

What does your Senior Symposium presentation entail, and how does Grisey “blur the lines between pitch and timbre”?

For this project I have analyzed the use of spectral techniques in Grisey’s Piece Jour, Contre-Jour.I will demonstrate how Grisey employs, in his own words, “sonic material that comes directly from the physics of sound.” These techniques blur the concepts of pitch and timbre into a single entity and ultimately challenge the traditional music theory notion that these musical parameters are completely separate.
