In celebration of the 20th anniversary of SEAMUS (Society for
Electroacoustic Music in the United States), SCREAM (The Southern California
Resource for Electroacoustic Music) presents two events. On Tuesday,
November 9, SCREAM will perform at REDCAT. On Saturday, November 20, CalArts
will present a SCREAM Listening Room event. Electroacoustic music involves
both acoustic instruments and electronic technology. At REDCAT, SCREAMıS
anniversary event features live electroacoustic works by CalArts faculty
members including world premieres by Anne LeBaron and Barry Schrader, and
works by David Rosenboom, James Tenney and Mark Trayle. Analog performers
include clarinetist William Powell, violinist Eric Clark, August Friscia on
piano and other guests.

The concert spans the decades with works ranging from James Tenneyıs Phases
and Instrumental Responses from the early 1960s to the world premieres of
LeBaronıs The Left Side of Time and Schraderıs First Spring. David Rosenboom
will play his new composition for trumpet with live electronic signal
processing. Shraderıs 1999 composition, Five Arabesques, features clarinet
and electronic sounds and Mark Trayle will perform, Black Stripe, his
composition for credit cards and video.

SCREAM was created by Barry Schrader in 1986. It is a loose consortium of
colleges and universities in the Los Angeles area that offer programs in
electroacoustic music. For many years, SCREAM presented concerts and
broadcasts of electroacoustic music sponsored by the member institutions.
SCREAM currently curates a series of programs that present the latest work
in the field to Southern California. SCREAM is funded by an ongoing grant
from California Institute of the Arts, which makes these concerts possible.

SEAMUS, The Society for Electro-Acoustic Music in the United States is a
national organization for composers of electro-acoustic music. Each
November, SEAMUS sponsors SEAMUS Electro-Acoustic Music Month, encouraging a
variety of concerts and broadcasts of electro-acoustic music. SCREAM 2004 is
proud to be part of SEAMUS Electro-Acoustic Music Month. For information on
