Two of Hsiao-Lan’s new works received world premiere on 2/13/2006 in the MEIT at University of North Texas. As part of the agreement as a scholarship recipient, four UNT composers presented new compositions on this concert.
Tale of an Unborn Child for flute and piano was performed by flutist Cecilia Hamilton and pianist Daniel Zajicek. The subject of the piece is heavy, and the performers did a fine job carrying out the unspoken message.
Snapshots for 1 performer, 8-channel sounds, and lighting design was performed by James Woodhall. Special thanks go to lighting crew Chapman Welch and Sebastian Zaberca. This piece won the audience’s applause with its humor and surprise.
Recent performances of A Golden Leaf Drifts Downstream and Star Gazer received numerous enthusiastic compliments and encouragement from the audience including composers Adrian Moore, Mike McFerron, Butch Rovan, and Cindy McTee, among others. I want to express my gratitude to the two wonderful performers Mr. Daniel Zajicek and Ms. Cecilia Hamilton for their dedication to my music. Without them, my works would not have reached their full potential.
Composition for flute and computer Star Gazer will receive its world premier at LaTex Electro-Acoustic Music Festival on 11/08/2003 at 8PM in the MEIT (MU1001) of UNT. Flutist Cecilia Hamilton will be performing, with me at the board.
Work in progress Star Gazer for flute and computer will have a test performance on 05/08/2003 in MEIT at 1:30 PM. Flutist Cecilia Hamilton will perform on solo flute with myself at the mixing board. This piece tries to bring out the serene quality of the flute in an extended tonal style. The performance is open to the public.
Star Gazer was performed wonderfully by Ms. Hamilton. She brought out the meditative spirit of the flute and projected still but free images with her playing. On the technology side, there were some clicks that I will need to look into even though they were not present before the performance.
