The Corwin Chair presents flutist and composer Jane Rigler in a concert entitled Secret Codes of Sounds on Wednesday, May 17, 2017 at 8:15 p.m. in Karl Geiringer Hall. Admission is free. Exploring the complexities of language (i.e., rational, irrational, conscious, subconscious, structured, improvised), through speech, the voice, the physical and gestural, as well as the mysteries of codes, programming, animal, machine and other non-being languages, this performance will explore acoustic and electronic interactions of sounds as languages and languages as sounds.
Flutist, composer, and improviser Jane Rigler creates pieces that play with hidden languages, recall ancestral songs, incorporate playful game techniques and ask the performers to imagine and improvise. As a Deep Listener© Certificate Holder, her compositions focus on sonically uniting the world around her by creating works that promote collaborations and the development of listening skills in others. She organized and performed over fifteen concerts during her JUSFC (2009-10) residency in Japan. She was invited back to Japan by the U.S. Embassy (2011 Holiday Tour) and the Chihan Art Project for her sound installation/concert While You Sleep (2013). She has received artist residencies from iEar@RPI, Hambidge, UCROSS, and three residencies from Harvestworks in NYC, Civitella Ranieri Creative Artist Residency as well as the Montalvo Arts Center Lucas Creative Artist Residency. Her CD Rarefaction (2015, Neuma Records) has been called, “exceptional” and “gripping.” Currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs, she teaches contemporary music history, computer music, chamber music, improvisation, and team-teaches a Digital Humanity course with faculty from diverse departments.
