This past weekend I attended a wonderful conference at the University of Richmond titled "Contested Frequencies: Sonic Representation in the Digital Age." I learned so much from all of the papers and activities, capped off by a fascinating lecture/performance by Guy Ramsey (U Penn). My contribution to the conference was a short introduction to Red hot sun turning over and a preview performance of two of the INTERLUDE movements by a great group of wind players drawn from U of Richmond faculty and Richmond Symphony performers. I conducted the performance, so I was mainly focused on not messing up rather than listening to the piece, but I received some great feedback. Also included in the conference was a morning adventure down controversial Monument Ave in Richmond, where we explored the monuments with a U of Richmond historian.
