Luna Nova 3

January 14-15 , 2008



The new music performance group, Luna Nova 3, was in residency on January 14, 2007 to perform a concert and hold sessions with our student composers.Luna Nova consists of Craig Hultgren, John McMurtery, and Adam Bowles. They were all great to work with, and, in our minds, some of cthe absolute coolest people on the planet! We thoroughly enjoyed working with all of them in class sessions, rehearsals, and in a reading session where the group read our music nearly flawlessly. LN3 also treated us to a performance which included works by Chinary Ung, George Crumb, Robert Patterson (in attendance), Mark Volker (in attendance), and Toru Takemitsu which involved a premiere performance of an accompanying video by videogrpaher, Sheri Wills who was also in attendance. It was a great event for all and we hope the group ccomes back very soon!

For more on Luna Nova 3, please see their website.

We were also very thankful that composers, Mark Volker and Robert Patterson as well as videographer, Sheri Wills joined us for performances of their work and in class sessions. The icing on the cake was having ASU alumnus, Matt Cureton return for the day. It was great seeing him again and hearing his music. Come back soon!
