Pondering Pulses with W.A. Schmutzinberry


Wolfgang Amadeus Schmutzinberry is about to start his next opus when the ensemble begins to criticize the fact that he has not included a meter or bar lines. He does not know what meter is or why it is important in music. His own piece slowly takes shape as he learns about accents, dance forms, duple/triple time and reviews the concepts of tempo, pulse, and rhythm.

The performance takes place in Sommer Center for Worship and the Performing Arts
