Come celebrate our coastal community and learn about current research aiding its long-term preservation! This “Blue Connections” Annual Campus Theme presentation invites professors across ODU’s campus to discuss local research activities related to flooding and sea levels and share how others can get involved. Featuring guest composer Judith Shatin’s glacier-inspired electroacoustic work “Ice Becomes Water,” Duke Ellington’s jazzy “River Suite,” and other works by Percy Grainger and Niels Gade.
Composer Judith Shatin is renowned for her richly imagined music that seamlessly spans acoustic and digital realms. Called "highly inventive on every level: hugely enjoyable and deeply moving" by The Washington Post, her music combines an adventurous approach to timbre with dynamic narrative design and a keen awareness of the sonic landscape of modern life. She draws on multiple fascinations with the sounding world (both natural and built), literature, the visual arts, and music's social and communicative power to craft a musical language that resonates with performers and audiences worldwide.
