This Saturday, 4/16/11, at around 11:30 AM, I'll be conducting a live interview with Lukas Ligeti, avant-garde composer and percussionist and, yes, the son of Gyorgy Ligeti. This is in anticipation of Ligeti traveling to St. Louis for a solo performance on Friday, 4/29/11, under the auspices of the HEARding Cats artists' collective. The details are at this link :
Time: Friday, 4/29/11, 7 PM
Place: St. Louis Community College, Forest Park campus, Mildred Bastian theater
There'll be discussion of his recent album Pattern Time, as well as his music and artistic influences. If you want to sample some of his work, have a look & listen:
Hope you have a chance to listen, and thanks for reading.
