Students participating in the Yarn/Wire Institute perform my short 4-hand piano piece, Ordinary Matter.
The Yarn/Wire Institute at Stony Brook University is a place for practitioners of modern music to hone their skills and collaborate with dedicated artists from across the globe. Now in its third year, the 13-day institute for pianists, percussionists, and composers focuses on the the music of today in its vast diversity of sound and style.
Participants work closely with Yarn/Wire and composition faculty members on the development and performance of new work, interpretation of existing pieces, and take part in a variety of masterclasses, workshops, and presentations. Topics include collaborating with composers/performers, working with electronics, project development, commissioning, exploring extended techniques, improvisation, entrepreneurship, and responding to the evolving cultural landscape with a personal voice and optimistic approach.
