Mills College Signal Flow 2014
Performances and Installations by Department of Music Graduate Students
The Mills College Music Department Graduate Program presents Signal Flow, an annual spring festival showcasing new student works in music and sound art. For over 75 years, Mills College has maintained an international reputation as a site for innovation and experimentalism in music. In its past and present, Mills counts among its students and faculty key innovators in areas as diverse as electronic, electro-acoustic and computer music, installation based sound art, improvised music, multi-media performance, instrument building, idiomatic instrumental composition and more. Notable graduates and faculty include Maryanne Amacher, Laurie Anderson, Robert Ashley, Luciano Berio, Anthony Braxton, Dave Brubeck, Lou Harrison, Annea Lockwood, Darius Milhaud, Pauline Oliveros, Steve Reich, Terry Riley, Morton Subotnick, David Tudor, and Iannis Xenakis. Over the course of four days of programming, the public is invited to sample the latest offerings by student composers, performers, and artists who have taken up this legacy and who in turn are charting new territories of their own. Signal Flow takes place throughout the lush campus of Mills College. All events are free and open to the public.

GEORGE LEWIS LECTURE
(Jean Macduff Vaux Composer-in-Residence)
Listening to Transgress: Collaborative Improvisation as Critical Pedagogy
George E. Lewis, Columbia University
Experimental music can both reflect and enact larger societal institutional and political conceptions. This talk explores relations among improvisation, concepts of phantasm and metaphor, and philosophical accounts of intentionality, social interaction, pedagogical listening, and ethics.
