This composer burns her pianosmain
Many composers are known for writing music on pianos. Composer Annea Lockwood is better known for burning them.
On Wednesday afternoon, Lockwood shared insights about her compositional process with students in Department of Music visiting lecturer Kerry O’Brien’s experimental music seminar, “American Experimental Music in the Long 1960s.” Throughout the semester, students study six collections of experimental music, concluding with the collection “Women’s Work,” co-edited by Lockwood and featuring the piece “Piano Burning.”
“It’s a rare opportunity to have a dialogue about this history with someone so plugged into this scene,” O’Brien said.
