iHearIC Radio - Episode 57: Justin's Modal Exploration (01/13/2018)

I had to reschedule this week's planned guest (stay tuned for February 3rd...). I've been obsessively working on a new composition for the past few days, so I decided that I'd use this week's show to present, demonstrate, and test drive some components of MODAL EXPLORATION!



The patch uses University of Iowa EMS instrument samples, found here: theremin.music.uiowa.edu/MIS.html
Will Huff's "HarpMusic" was an inspiration for Modal Exploration, and you can find his music here: huffcomposer.com
I adapted some data from David Huron's book Sweet Anticipation to help the patch convey the different modes. Check out Huron's research here: csml.som.ohio-state.edu/Huron

Our next (*FREE*) iHearIC concert will be 1/25 8pm at The Mill, featuring performances by Maul of America, The Twisted Roots, and Treecloud! RSVP and invite your friends here: facebook.com/events/386069291938789

Next Sunday's show will be a preview of the 1/25 concert and will be broadcast live at 4pm on KRUI (krui.fm)!

iHearIC Radio - Episode 56: 2018 Roundup Part 2 (01/06/2018)

Surprise! We got back into the KRUI studio for our first radio show of 2019! Chris Emery (from two episodes ago) joined me as we revisited the rest of 2018's live iHearIC concerts. Listen to last week's radio show for the earlier 2018 concert recordings.

iHearIC Radio - Episode 51: Trumpet Blossom Show Recap (12/02/2018)

Our last concert of 2018 was last night at Trumpet Blossom! KRUI wasn't locked this week, so Michele joined me in studio to play some live tracks from the concert and talk about them.
