[dvd-audio + dvd-video two-disc set]
[re] includes multichannel DVD-Audio and DVD-Video discs featuring electronic music by thirteen composers with diverse musical aesthetics, interests, and backgrounds. All works were commissioned by the Third Practice Festival of Electroacoustic Music at the University of Richmond.
Composers were asked to reflect on, reinterpret, comment on, recompose or reconsider past musical compositional techniques, specific works, genres, styles, forms, and practices. The result is a striking assemblage of music that reflects the majesty of our shared musical past while embracing technology to point toward the musical future.
Featured composers include Stephen Vitiello, Benjamin Broening, Mark Applebaum, John Gibson, Larry Polansky, Mark Wingate, Colby Leider, Scanner, Kristine H. Burns, Matthew McCabe, Ricardo Climent, Mason Bates, and Alessandro Cipriani.
