more composers

last week we had a very interesting guest composer "alvin curran". his music is made of electronic and environmental sounds.  he has compositions from lake concerts featuring musicians in row boats to ship horn concerts. one of my favourite is his "floor plan/notes from underground" which was a holocaust memorial installation at ars electronica in linz.
good news for san francisco and bay area residents: he has a concert coming up this sunday(march 15th) at contemporary jewish museum in san francisco.
