PROGRAM

Stuart Saunders Smith
Commune
(2016/17)
Vibraphone solo and ensemble  D: 90′ (Austrian premiere)

Stuart Saunders Smith (*1948 in Portland, Maine, USA) is one of the leading composers of his generation in the USA. As a composer, poet and editor of literary works, he has created an extensive catalog of works. The spectrum of his scores, which go back to many different musical and extra-musical sources of inspiration, reaches from graphic to complex notes. Similar to Morton Feldman, the music of Stuart Saunders Smith aims to dissolve the sense of time and space. From harmonious structures & fields, Saunders Smith develops motifs, lines and larger segments that create patterns through repetitions that grow together to form fascinating, kaleidoscopic sound mosaics. Stuart Saunders Smith lives in seclusion in New England / Vermont, surrounded by sprawling forests where he finds peace and creative power for his music.
“Music is not reason. Music need not have anything to do with logic or sequencing. I want the structure of music to be just as alive as life. When I compose, each note is there for a sound.” – Stuart Saunders Smith
