STRAIGHT, CURVING, COLORFUL: THREE ARCHITECTS
Abstract (Summary)Straight, Curving, Colorful: Three Architects for clarinet, cello, and computer musically explores the designs of buildings by Mies van der Rohe, Frank Gehry, and Rem Koolhaas in three movements. Straight is based on Crown Hall by Mies van der Rohe on the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) campus. Curving is based on the Jay Pritzker Pavillion by Frank Gehry at Millenium Park, and Colorful is based on the McCormick Tribune Campus Center by Rem Koolhaas at IIT. The musical language of the piece incorporates salient design features and aesthetics of each building as structural elements used to develop a composition derived from but not literally tied to each building.
