The Extended Techniques for Strings course I teach at New York University is a survey of the broad range of techniques demanded of performers in twenty-first century music. The first semester of this two-part course is focused on acoustic techniques, seeking to broaden the students' confidence in interpreting and executing extended techniques for strings. The final "exam" is to plan, promote, and put on a concert of music by living composers with the other members of the class . . . and it's EXAM TIME!
NYU Extended String Sextet presents NEW SOUNDS featuring works by Louis Andriessen, Marcos Balter, Michael Bies, Garth Knox, Yasunao Tone, as well as premieres of new works by the performers: Debora Bang, Kate Barmotina, Tyler James, Daelyn Kauffman, Robert Pile, and Kyle Stalsberg.
