Break of Reality

Eastman Presents Series

September 29, 2016 | 8:00 PM Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre

Web crop - Break of Reality

Having sold out concerts in North America, South America, Europe and Asia, Break of Reality is regarded as one of the world’s premier alt-classical chamber ensembles. The band’s signature cello rock sound has bridged the gap between classical, rock and world music listeners, and in 2015, the members of Break of Reality were appointed music ambassadors by the U.S. State Department.

Formed in 2003 at the prestigious Eastman School of Music in Rochester, NY, Break of Reality has gone on to reach millions of listeners via platforms like Spotify and Pandora Radio, and their rendition of the Game of Thrones theme has over 10 million views on YouTube. The band has recorded four full length albums, including The Sound Between (2006), Spectrum of the Sky (2009), Covers (2012), and Ten (2014). Their music has been featured on a variety of radio, television and internet outlets, including NPR, PBS, Dateline NBC, Yahoo Music and Huffington Post.

In addition to performing and recording, Break of Reality is dedicated to educational initiatives through music. The group has visited hundreds of public schools around the world, performing alongside music students and encouraging them to think outside of the box with their classical instruments. The band has also developed a DIY Lecture Series, designed to empower budding classical musicians with practical, real world music business knowledge.

This performance is part of the Global Consortium of Entrepreneurship Center Conference at University of Rochester and Rochester Institute of Technology.

 

Tickets start at $15 and are available online at eastmantheatre.org, in person at the Eastman Theatre Box Office (433 East Main St.), or by calling (585) 274-3000.

Renée Jolles, violinist, enjoys an eclectic career as soloist and chamber artist specializing in a wide variety of styles from the Baroque to the contemporary. Hailed as a “real star” by The New York Times for her New York Concerto debut in Alice Tully Hall, she has premiered hundreds of works, including the American premiere of Schnittke’s Violin Concerto No. 2. Her concerto engagements have included orchestras such as Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, The Philharmonic Orchestra of New Jersey, The Cape May Festival Orchestra, and The Salisbury Symphony. Ms. Jolles is a member of the Jolles Duo (harp and violin), Continuum, Intimate Voices, The New York Chamber Ensemble, and is a concertmaster of the world-renowned, Grammy Award winning, conductorless Orpheus Chamber Orchestra. Honored to be a featured soloist in three world premieres as part of the Orpheus “New Brandenburg” commissions, she can be heard as soloist on the WQXR website in live performances from Carnegie Hall performing the music of Paul Moravec, Melinda Wagner, and Peter Maxwell Davies. She has performed at festivals such as Marlboro, Cape May, Bowdoin International Music Festival, Rockport (Mass.), Norfolk, Taos, Riverrun, and The Chamber Music and Composers’ Forum of the East. Committed to recording new music, she can be heard as soloist and chamber artist on the Cambria, CRI, North/South Recordings, Albany, and New World record labels. She can also be heard on three recently released albums appearing this season which showcase the music of composers Oleg Felzer, Victoria Bond, and Ushio Torikai. Before accepting the position of Associate Professor of Violin at Eastman, Ms. Jolles was on the faculty of The Juilliard School, Pre-College Division, The Mannes School of Music, Preparatory Division, Hoff-Barthelson Music School, and The Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College. During the summer, she is on the faculty at the Bowdoin International Music Festival.

Ms. Jolles received her BM and MM degrees from Juilliard, where, upon graduation, she was presented with the school’s highest award, the William Schuman Prize. While at Juilliard, she held teaching fellowships in Chamber Music as an assistant to the Juilliard Quartet, and in Ear-Training. Her teachers have included Lewis Kaplan, Felix Galimir, Jacob Lateiner, and members of the Juilliard, Tokyo, and American String Quartets.

Carol Rodland made her solo debut with the Philadelphia Orchestra as a teenager and has subsequently established a distinguished international career as a concert and recording artist and pedagogue. Fanfare Magazine describes her playing as “larger than life, sweetly in tune, infinitely variegated” and “delicious” and her recordings on the Crystal and Neuma Record Labels have been critically acclaimed. A passionate advocate for contemporary music, she has commissioned, premiered and recorded works of Kenji Bunch, Dan Coleman, David Liptak, Christopher Theofanidis, and Augusta Read Thomas.

A dedicated teacher, Ms. Rodland is Professor of Viola at the Eastman School of Music and is also an artist-faculty member at the Bowdoin International Music Festival, the Perlman Music Program, and the Karen Tuttle Coordination Workshop. Previous positions have included professorships at New England Conservatory, where she was recognized with the “Krasner Award for Excellence in Teaching”, at the Musikhochschule “Hanns Eisler” Berlin, at Arizona State University, and as guest faculty at the Juilliard School.

In 2009, Ms. Rodland founded “If Music Be the Food…”, a fully volunteer benefit concert series whose mission is to increase awareness and support for the hungry through the sharing of great music. “If Music Be the Food…” has inspired musicians across the country to implement initiatives based on this concept in their own communities.

Ms. Rodland studied on full scholarship with Karen Tuttle at the Juilliard School and as a Fulbright Scholar with Kim Kashkashian at the Musikhochschule Freiburg. She won first prizes at the Washington International Competition, the Artists International Auditions, and the Juilliard Concerto Competition, as well as the Universal Editions Prize at the Lionel Tertis International Viola Competition.

She plays on a viola made by Vincenzo Panormo in 1791 and a bow made by Benoit Rolland in2010. For further information please visit www.carolrodland.com and www.ifmusicbethefood.com

Eastman Audio Research Studio Charts New Territories for Experimental Electronic Music at Eastman School of Music

Building on the foundation of the computer music center founded at Eastman School of Music in 1981 by Allan Schindler, the Eastman Audio Research Studio (EARS) is defining a new vision for the teaching and creation of electronic music. Spatial audio, sound research tools, construction of installations, invention of new electric and electronic interfaces and instruments, and a large inventory of equipment and resources will broaden and enrich the study of sound at Eastman.

 

EARS is a platform for research, experimentation, and creation of new works and sound art at the intersection of musical expression and sound technology. In addition to offering courses in electronic music, the center gives students access to resources such as software programs, hardware, analog and digital gear, and other materials for their composing and research projects.

 

Based in Room 50 of Eastman School’s main building, EARS has equipped a new facility (Room 514), where an expandable 16-channel loudspeaker array will introduce students to working with multiple sound sources. The new space serves as the venue for an hour-long concert at 7:30 p.m.Friday, Sept. 23, titled “Electronic Music 1952-2010 at the Darmstadt Festival” featuring the music of John Cage, György Ligeti, Luigi Nono, Joji Yuasa, Herbert Eimert, Maryanne Amacher, Oliver Schneller, and other 20th- and 21st-century composers.

 

Schneller joined the Eastman School faculty in 2015 as professor of composition and director of the computer music center, taking over as the center leader upon the retirement of founder Allan Schindler. The recipient of numerous international commissions and prizes for his work, Schneller developed the Computer Music Studio at the City University of New York in the 90s; co-founded the SinusTon Festival for Experimental Music; was composer in research at IRCAM, a French institute for science about music, sound, and electro-acoustical art music; and has presented composition seminars and master classes around the world.

 

EARS sponsors a variety of interdisciplinary projects and international exchanges and presents guest lectures and a regular concert series in the School’s Hatch Recital Hall. In addition to offering support for individual student projects, the center stages projects which are linked to a performance or venue outside of the Eastman School. Current and previous project partners include the University of Rochester and its Memorial Art Gallery, the Strong National Museum of Play, Spectrum Gallery in New York City, and the SinusTonFestival in Magdeburg, Germany.

 

One of the projects currently being assembled at EARS is the Eastman Mobile Acousmonium (EMA). This installation consists of an array of individual custom-built loudspeakers co-designed by students from Eastman and the University of Rochester. Each speaker has the capacity to tilt, rotate, or change its direction, altering sound reflection patterns in a given space. The project is scheduled for completion in March 2017, when it will be presented at the Memorial Art Gallery in Rochester.

 

This year, EARS introduces a new series of two portrait concerts revolving around the work of guest artists. Miller Puckette, a professor at the University of California San Diego who created the music and multimedia synthesis program Max, and pianist Shiau-uen Ding will perform Philippe Manoury’s monumental composition for piano and electronics Pluton. Later this fall, eminent British composer Trevor Wishart will present workshops, lectures, and a concert featuring his works.

 
 This event is free and open to the public.
