A New Music Séance III (2008)

Event, EV.NMS.2008.12.06

Summoning the specters of musical forbears, and channeling the spirits of their successors, the third and final installment of Other Minds' New Music Séance was held on December 6, 2008 in the historic Swedenborgian Church in San Francisco. Once again the day-long event featured three concerts; at 1:00pm, 4:00pm, and 8:00pm with works by living and dearly departed composers performed by pianist Sarah Cahill or the violin-piano duo of Kate Stenberg and Eva-Maria Zimmermann. The event featured three world premieres by composers Steed Cowart, Ingram Marshall and Mamoru Fujieda. The third concert was devoted to the American composer Ruth Crawford Seeger and was preceded by a lecture on her life and work presented by biographer Judith Tick.
