Annual Utah Crosstalk electronic music concert at BYU Jan. 27

Brigham Young University’s School of Music will be the host for the Ninth Annual Utah “Crosstalk” concert series, an evening of electronic music on the cutting edge, Thursday, Jan. 27, at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall. Prior to the concert, visiting composer Mark Applebaum, whose work will be featured in this year’s performance, will also give a lecture at 3 p.m. in E-400 Harris Fine Arts Center.

Admission to both events is free, and the public is welcome.

This new-age concert will feature surround-sound electronic music accompanied by live instrumental and vocal performers, created and performed by BYU and University of Utah student and faculty composers.

Applebaum is joining the concert as a guest artist from the Stanford University music faculty. He is a specialist in improvised, electro-acoustic music and will perform his piece “Intellectual Property” on the interactive piano or Disklavier. The program will also include an interpretation of his video score, “The Metaphysics of Notation,” by the ART Trio, BYU's faculty free-improvisation ensemble.

The concert will also feature recent works by BYU student composers that have been featured at the national conference for SEAMUS, the Society for Electro-Acoustic Music in the United States, and a piece on the Disklavier by BYU alumnus and University of Utah doctoral student David Snedegar.

For more information about the concert, contact Steven Ricks, associate professor in the School of Music, at (801) 422-6115 or stevericksmusic@gmail.com, or visit byuarts.com. For more about Mark Applebaum, visit www.markapplebaum.com.

A megafire induced over a century’s worth of erosion near Utah Lake — but there’s more to the story, say BYU scientists

October 22, 2021
In burned watersheds where the wildfire had consumed stabilizing vegetation and leaf litter, the rain had caused massive erosion. There was a 2,000-fold increase in sediment flux compared to unburned areas, creating a plume of ash and soil moving into Utah Lake that was visible from space.
