A Pulitzer Prize winner and professor at UC San Diego, Reynolds has devoted his life to sonic experimentation. Following studies in music and science, he spent time in Europe and Japan, layering diverse international influences upon his abiding fascination with American pioneers such as Ives and Cage. This program spotlights two commissions for Irvine Arditti—a solo work and a concerto—as well as a newer piece for chamber ensemble that engages live performers and computer-generated sounds in an improvisatory dialogue.

The performers are: Irvine Arditti, violin; Ensemble Signal; Brad Lubman, conductor.
