On the Edge - What Does Music Looks Like? The BlipVert Method and Snapshot Composition

January 22, 2019 (7:00 PM – 8:00 PM)
Strathcona

Description

Will Northlich-Redmond has been performing and composing electronic music under the pseudonym “BlipVert” for the past seventeen years. Sonically, BlipVert facilitates its own unique impact through a process of collage or “snapshot” composition, which presents rapidly shifting textures of mood, genre, and structural coherence, thus portraying the concept of time as a collection of definitive musical moments. This presentation will specifically address the confluence of the BlipVert ideology with graphic score notation - the use of ancillary visual colors, symbols, and shapes to enhance the profundity of the written musical score.

Presented by Will Northlich-Redmond - aka BlipVert - a composer, multi-instrumentalist, electronic musician, and educator. His compositions have been featured at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC, Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center, the National Gugak Center in Seoul, South Korea, the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music, New York University, Wesleyan University, the NYC Fringe Festival, and numerous international venues. Will is currently a doctoral candidate in composition at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada, and looks forward to blowing people's heads open with all kinds of sound for a long time to come.

On the Edge is a speaker series featuring cutting edge research presented by scholars and researchers from Edmonton's academic community. This presentation is presented with the University of Alberta's Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research.
