Shindell Choral Hall
A marathon of new music created and performed by collaborative pairs of Rutgers composers and performers/ensembles! What a fantastic experience, from working with my cochair Thomas Purcell to plan and realize this program, to hearing all of the fantastic premiers, including two of my own! (Listen for harp, premiered by Joseph Pagani; There was a goat's head for violin, premiered by Thomas Purcell)
It was so rewarding to help facilitate these collaborations and performances, and to help create an experimental space within Rutgers where composers and performers can dip their toes into the pools of their personal unknowns.
Louise Fristensky (b. 1987) is a composer with projects ranging from acoustic solo and chamber ensemble to electroacoustic experimental composition. She also enjoys cooking, eating, reading, and wandering.
