Known for its inventive yet approachable sounds, the works of composer David Wolff range from the experimental to the familiar and are drawn from the classical, jazz, ethnic, and rock traditions. His pieces have been hailed as “exciting” by WCCO, and Minnesota Public Radio’s State of the Arts has said his music “evokes a kind of synesthesia.”

Performed by Zeiggeist.
Meant to evoke the process by which changes in an organism’s genetic information are induced experimentally or by environmental stresses, mutagenesis is a dance based on an ever-changing cell structure. The work is, at its core, really just a fun way of changing one woodblock into three woodblocks. Also, it’s kind of kicky.
mutagenesis was commissioned and premiered by Zeiggeist as part of the group’s 30th anniversary celebration.
