    The live human french hornist Brian KM and his friendly not-a-human computer, Stan, perform, joke, and reflect through original pieces featuring french horn and live electronics. Listen in and hear what Stan can do while Brian plays the horn, including autolooping, synthesis, and live electronic manipulation. Connect your senses to musical storytelling through photography, video, and glimpses into the computer himself!

    Brian’s new approach to composition that blends his classical training with an EDM fascination, to be expected from a horn player in love with German Brass Polka Jam Groups, David Maslanka, and cellist Julia Kent, has delighted audiences across the United States and Canada. Despite Brian’s controversial views on coconuts and their role in society, he and Stan are “wired” to have a great show!

    Tickets are $25 general admission and $15 for students with ID.

    Join us for the next installment Composer Interview Series on December 8 at 6pm ET. Our guest will be Osnat Netzer. Get to know the composer and her music!

    Osnat Netzer /osˈnat ˈnɛtsɛʁ/ is a composer, performer and educator. Osnat creates her compositions collaboratively, tailoring her work to the performer’s sensibilities, physicality and improvisational inclinations. She takes inspiration from cognitive linguistics, and in dialogue with the embodied experience of physical forces, such as potential and kinetic energy, resulting in compositions that are rich in musical languages and connected to the fulsome pursuit for tension and relaxation.

    Born in Haifa, Israel, Netzer studied composition and piano at the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance, where her primary composition teacher was Menachem Zur. She came to the United States in 2003 for graduate studies in composition with Robert Cuckson at Mannes school of Music and continued her studies with Lee Hyla at New England Conservatory, where she earned her doctorate in 2011. In 2019, she joined the faculty of DePaul University as Assistant Professor of Composition and Musicianship.

    Netzer’s works have been commissioned and performed by Ensemble Dal Niente, ICE (International Contemporary Ensemble), Patchwork, mezzo-soprano Lucy Dhegrae, bass David Salsbery Fry, saxophonists Kenneth Radnofsky, Doug O’Connor and Geoffrey Landman, Spektral Quartet, and Winsor Music, among many others, published by Edition Peters and earthsongs, and recorded on Bridge Records and New Focus Recordings.
