2005 International Electro-Acoustic Music Festival at Brooklyn
College to Honor Composer Noah Chreshevsky

The 2005 International Electroacoustic Music Festival at Brooklyn
College will feature three evenings and two afternoons of
electro-acoustic and intermedia works from around the world. Founded
in 1995 by composer George Brunner, the festival features the newest
and most adventurous electronic music being created today.
Performances are free to the public.

This year's festival, the fourteenth bi-annual held at Brooklyn
College, celebrates the life and influence of composer Noah
Creshevsky. Trained in composition by Nadia Boulanger in Paris and
Luciano Berio at Juilliard, Creshevsky (b. 1945) was the director of
the Center for Computer Music from 1989 to 1995 and is Professor
Emeritus at Brooklyn College of the City University of New York. His
music, which he has dubbed 'hyperrealism'--obscures the boundaries of
real and imaginary ensembles though the fusion of opposites: music
and noise, comprehensible and incomprehensible vocal sources, human
and superhuman vocal and instrumental capacities.

Tuesday, November 1, 1:30 p.m.  250 Gershwin Hall, Brooklyn College

STEVEN TAKASUGI

One of the leading young experts in computer music in the US,
