Co-composed with Chris Chafe (CCRMA's Director), this three minute piece opened the first official concert at the brand new Bing Concert Hall (see program here). We used a scaled down speaker array (from our 24.6 system) to diffuse this 14 channel piece.
Chris Chafe wrote about Fugue 1 (Fanfare):
Our opening music heralds the variety of music to come in this concert hall: a mix of fresh music from freshmen to PhD's composed during Fall term and representing Mexico, France, China, and the USA which are melded with acoustic and computer-based compositions by faculty and visiting artists. Also in the mix are live sounds of White Plaza at Big Game time, "vibration tests" from banging on Bing Hall itself before and after completion, and Morse Code renditions of Peter Bing's Family name played by Canada's largest ice breaker, St. Johns Harbour, Newfoundland.
