One year after the premiere concert, here is the video of Live Saturation:
Live Saturation
for flute and electronic music
with Ruth Lepson's poetryThis is the live recording of Mario Caroli's Harvard recital, that took place on May 24th, 2008, to the invitation of the Harvard Group for New Music.Mario Caroli plays Ivan FedeleI studied under Maestro Ivan Fedele during several years at the Conservatoire de Strasbourg. Mario Caroli is one of the best interprets of his music. That's why I'm happy to link to two video recordings with ensemble Algoritmo:1. Notturno, for flute, clarinet, bass clarinet, piano, percussion, harp, 2 violins, viola, violoncello, and double bass.2. Profilo in eco (first part), for solo flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, horn, piano, percussion, violin, viola, violoncello, and double bass.One more thing that I like in these recordings: the excellent clarinetist Roberta Gottardi is a friend since we played together the premiere and recording of Stockhausen…

Dudley House is Harvard's house for graduate students and non-resident undergraduate students. It is a great place to make friends, grow interdisciplinary ideas, and have a coffee at Café Gato Rojo.As one of the house music fellows, I am proud to announce the first Dudley House Music Festival. It is taking place this Sunday, May 10th, 2009 in Dudley House Main Dining Hall.
The Chorus will kick off the event with Haydn's Theresa Mass conducted by Michael Barrett.Then, the World Music Ensemble will perform music from around the world, including original arrangements and new compositions. Multi-instrumentalist Behtash Babadi is the musical director.Jazz Creative Combo & Big BandThe jazz combo's philosophy is to play creative jazz and have fun. By bringing in new arrangements of old music, or brand new compositions, we try and keep the spark of jazz well alive.
