Composition Seminar: Xenakis' Rebonds

  • Seminar Room 1 Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music 3 Conservatory Drive Singapore 117376 (map)

Assoc. Prof. Peter Edwards analyzes Iannis Xenakis's Rebonds for solo percussion.  Comprising two movements that can be performed in any order, Xenakis composed Rebonds between 1987 and 1989.  The work is a classic of contemporary solo percussion repertoire, and will be performed by Steven Schick when he leads the conservatory's OpusNovus in their concert at the SOTA Studio Theatre on 16 April 2017.

Peter Edwards is a composer who creates acoustic and electro-acoustic works.  Additionally, he collaborates with other musicians to create and perform works based in indeterminacy or improvisation.  He is particularly interested in how the computer can assist in the creation of new works, either to create acoustic compositions or signal processing environments.

His music has been performed at festivals including June in Buffalo, Darmstadt Ferienkurse für neue Musik, MATA, Wien Modern, and Donaueschinger Musiktage, amongst others, in America, Asia, and Europe.  He is also a found member of Zero Crossing, a duo for percussion and electronics.

He is currently an Associate Professor at Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music where he teaches composition and computer music.
