Cal Poly's 'RSVP: Soundings' with Percussion Trio line upon line

Thursday and Friday, June 1 and 2, 2023
7:30 p.m., Pavilion, Performing Arts Center

The Cal Poly Music Department’s music technology and composition students will present “RSVP: Soundings” at 7:30 p.m. Thursday and Friday, June 1 and 2, in the Pavilion of the Performing Arts Center

Student composers will collaborate with guest ensemble line upon line to premiere original interdisciplinary work for percussion, electronics and dance.

“In preparation for the shows, the studentshave been investigating the role of AI in the creation of music, including its implications on culture, automation and what it means to be sentient,” said Julie Herndon, the faculty director. 

Featured composers and artists on the program include Will Chant, Kamilee Costa, Ben Geil, Madison Holmes, Eli Lazar, Shay Lyon, Ari Maman, Victoria Reyes, Aldo Rominger, William Terlinden, Vinny “Hauward” Ako, Matthew Borin, Alyse Murray, Yumin Park, Philip Schremp, Francis Truong, Josh Versace and Jeremiah White.

The dancers are students and alumni of the Cal Poly Theatre and Dance Department. They will perform original choreography featuring Allie Smith, Audrey Johnson, Aviv Kesar, Candice Espitia, Carly Morris, Chloe Rosero, Emily Olster, Evan Ricaurté, Horacio Heredia, Kaitlyn Kelly and Melissa Evans. Evan Ricaurté, lead choreographer, is a Cal Poly graduate (Architecture, ’20), who is as an associate designer at Andrew Goodwin Designs in San Luis Obispo. While at Cal Poly, Ricaurté was active in the Theatre and Dance Department as a performer, choreographer and director for numerous concerts and productions. 

line upon line is a percussion trio from Austin, Texas, that has been active since 2009. The group champions the work of living composers and pursues the musically unfamiliar. The trio — Adam Bedell, Cullen Faulk and Matthew Teodori — has premiered nearly 100 new works for percussion.
