17:00 - SEMINAR - UWA Music presents: Callaway Centre Seminar Series - Pedro Alvarez : Notation as transcription, composition as translation More Information
A free weekly seminar series, with presenters from within UWA and from the wider community.

This week: Pedro Alvarez | Notation as transcription, composition as translation

Abstract: Music composition will be discussed in its dialectical situation between transcriptive and generative functions of notation. Analysing different approaches to such functions in recent compositional practices for context, I will present my most recent creative work.

Bio: Pedro Alvarez is an independent composer, improviser, and scholar, born in Chile and currently based in Western Australia. His creative work focuses on new forms of sonic narrative made of static situations, articulating simplicity of form in contrast with highly detailed textures. Research interests include aesthetics and politics, postcolonialism, and musical thinking since the 1960’s. Alvarez studied composition with Cirilo Vila in Santiago, with James Dillon in London, and with Liza Lim in Huddersfield, obtaining a PhD in 2014.

He has been hosted as composer-in-residence in Vienna and in Mexico, and receives commissions from festivals and ensembles around the world.

Free entry - all welcome. Please join us for refreshments after the seminar.
