Event Details

On Monday, October 14th at 7:30pm in Cone Chapel, Composer Glenn McClure will share his work with scientists at the European Space Agency, the National Science Foundation in Antarctica, and Hawaii Volcanos National Park in giving a musical voice to the planet. His approach to sonification offers both an artistic vehicle for eco-musicians and a potent new tool for big data analysis. McClure will also explore the emerging roles for musicians who wish to join the dialogue on Climate Change. The presentation will culminate in the world premiere of Waiting for Pele performed by Dr. Katharine Skovira and based upon data from the Kilauea Volcano of Hawaii. Dr. Jean-David Coen, the Artist-in-Residence and director of the Grace Goudy Distinguished Artists Series in the Willamette University Department of Music, will accompany on piano.
