Listen: Paul Dresher's Quadrachord and the Marimba Luna
Friday, August 14, 2015
On Oct. 2, 2014, New Music New Haven opened its 2014-2015 season with music by student composers – William Gardiner, Michael Laurello and Jesse Limbacher – and by visiting composer-performer and instrument builder Paul Dresher.
This program included Dresher's Glimpsed from Afar - a duet performed by Joel Davel on marimba lumina and Dresher on the quadrachord, one of his own invented instruments. The quadrachord is an instrument that was originally created with instrument designer Daniel Schmidt for use in Dresher's music theater work Sound Stage.
