BYU School of Music hosts "Crosstalk," an evening of new music, Feb. 11

Featuring works by students from BYU, University of Utah

Brigham Young University School of Music’s Electronic Music Studio will host “Crosstalk,” an evening of new music featuring students and faculty from BYU and the University of Utah, Saturday, Feb. 11, at 5:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall.

Admission is free and the public is invited to attend.

Exploring the movement of sound in space, this electronic music concert will highlight works from 10 student composers from both universities.

The music performed will be electronically generated using computer programs and software to record and manipulate sounds with synthesizers. Many pieces will be pre-recorded and will be played through speakers. Some works will involve live performers on the electronic synthesizer playing along with pre-recorded sounds.

“This is basically a performer-less recital,” said director Steve Ricks. “It’s like transforming the recital hall into a living room where we’ll all sit back and listen to the electronic recording played back in concert style.”

Another unique aspect of this performance is the projection of video and visual images accompanying the music, creating a multimedia environment.

BYU engineering students are testing radar to track polar bears aboveground. If successful, the team’s work would mark a significant step forward in scientists’ ability to track mother polar bears during winter, when they den and give birth to their cubs beneath dense snowpack. Locating and protecting bear dens is important for conservation efforts.

Going cashless to prevent COVID-19 was useless, new BYU microbiology study finds

May 12, 2022
A new study published in PLOS ONE from BYU scientists finds that the SARS-CoV-2 virus is almost immediately nonviable if deposited on a cash banknote. The virus actually shows greater stability on plastic money cards, with the live virus still being detected 48 hours after initial deposition, but no viable virus was detected on either cash or card that was randomly sampled in the study.
