LUBOMYR MELNYK - Performing in Portland for the 1st time at Yale Union

February 28, 2014 from 9pm to 10pm
In the early 1970s, Lubomyr Melnyk sped up. Frustrated by the “lingering theatrical and nightmarish qualities” of contemporary classical composers, he turned the other way and developed a playing style that relies on hand speed to build dense sequences of polyrhythmic notes. He calls it continuous music. Melnyk released a number of solo piano and ensemble works on the Bandura label in the 1970s and 1980s, though relatively little was heard from him until the CD reissue of …See More

MICHAEL STIRLING at Yale Union (YU)

April 20, 2013 at 10pm to April 21, 2013 at 2am
For the last thirty years, Michael Stirling has been a disciple of the Indian classical vocalist, Pandit Pran Nath (1918–1996) and a student of the American minimalist composer, Terry Riley (1935-). On Saturday, April 20, Stirling will perform three Hindustani ragas. It is easiest, perhaps, to think of a raga as a tonal framework for composition and improvisation. A raga is not fixed, but is created through time by a lengthy evolutionary process. Each Hindustani (North Indian) raga is assigned…See More

Walter Marchetti's Natura Morta at Yale Union (YU)

December 15, 2012 from 8pm to 10pm
We say goodbye to the ephemeral distinction of two thousand and twelve with Walter Marchetti’sNatura Morta (1988). Composed for a grand piano covered in fruit, Natura Morta is slow with no punctures, peaks, or destinies. There is so seemingly little to the composition that it inevitably invites the feeling that one could have made it, but don’t lose your head, one couldn’t have.There can be no question that what makes Walter Marchetti’s Natura Morta safe from larvae and rust is not its…See More

Neighborhood Suggestions?

I'm a self-employed artist, and will be moving to Portland in the Fall. I'd like to live in a neighborhood where there are other creative folks, doing their thing. Other factors that are important to me in a neighborhood are a sense of community, proximity to parks and bike paths, and easy access to public transportation; someplace that has plenty of social gathering spots, such as cafes, pubs, little restaurants, etc. and activities available like yoga, dance, open-mike and music jams.
