Livewire 13: Ruckus
October 19, 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Location: Earl and Darielle Linehan Concert Hall
The second of six events in UMBC’s annual Livewire new music festival features Ruckus, the faculty new music ensemble. The evening’s performance includes three world premieres of works by Linda Dusman (professor of music), alumna Karena Ingram ’16, and exchange student Vittoria Tchotche from Piacenza Conservatory.
Each work on the program reflects deeply rooted personal journeys, such as finding oneself during Covid, developing a sense of home during politically uncertain times, exploring a process of discovering language as an infant, and transforming during adolescence. Ann Cleare’s work reimagines instruments and literally transforms them with various apparatus and scordatura (re-tuning).
