January 2017 Meeting: Daniel Lippel

Topics in Modern Repertoire: The Guitar’s Integration into Contemporary Aesthetics
Daniel Lippel will discuss the guitar’s increasingly prominent role in the world of contemporary composition, covering examples ranging from scordatura, microtonality, tempo modulation, electronic music, and extended technique. The emphasis of the talk will be on repertoire by non-guitarist composers, and the ways in which those composers creatively use the guitar, an instrument many composers dread writing for, to serve their aesthetic goals.

The presentation will be followed by our Open Mic. Sign up in advance to play — see the Member Events page for details. NYCCGS Member Events are free and open to all members and first-time guests, and are supported by a generous grant from the D’Addario Foundation.
