David Rosenboom: Zones of Influence

David Rosenboom: Zones of Influence

“David Rosenboom is one of America's most underappreciated composers.” — Los Angeles Times

[William Winant is] “one of the best avant-garde percussionists working today” — Los Angeles Times

First written 30 years ago, David Rosenboom’s Zones of Influence is a landmark concert-length work for percussion soloist, live computer-generated electronics, and auxiliary keyboard and glissando instruments. At the time a breakthrough in linking virtuoso electroacoustic performance with interactive compositional algorithms, Zones is now fully realized—thanks to new a software instrument called the Touché II that allows the dynamic dimensionality of the music to take full mind-bending, cosmological shape. Rosenboom wrote the five-part epic expressly for superstar percussionist William Winant, who returns to perform on five live-processed percussion setups. He is joined by the composer on the Touché II, piano and violin, while Jinku Kim provides an immersive video environment for the concert. Rosenboom, one of the foremost voices in American composition since the late 1960s, released new double-CD recording of Zones of Influence on the Pogus Productions label this summer.

Performed by William Winant and David Rosenboom.

Realization of the new version of Zones of Influence and the recording on Pogus Productions have been supported in part by the Aaron Copland Fund for Music and the Richard Seaver Distinguished Chair in Music in The Herb Alpert School of Music at CalArts.
