Ussachevsky Memorial Festival of Electro Acoustic Music

Ussachevsky Memorial Festival of Electro Acoustic Music The 28th annual Ussachevsky Memorial Festival of Electro Acoustic Music this year features special guest composer, American Christopher Cerrone. The two-day event welcomes faculty and guest performers in two evening concerts, along with an afternoon lecture/demonstration by Cerrone.

Ussachevsky Memorial Festival of Electro Acoustic Music, Tom Flaherty, director welcomes guest composer Christopher Cerrone, who is acclaimed for compositions characterized by a subtle handling of timbre and resonance, and a flair for multimedia collaborations, Cerrone’s works have been called utterly compelling and uniquely his own.
   The festival is named after Vladimir Ussachevsky (1911-1990), Pomona ’35, who was a pioneer in the field of electronic music and co-founder of the Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center in New York. He left a bequest to the college to support activities in the field of electronic music, which has funded much of the Music Department’s equipment and the founding of this series.
