On April 13, I will be giving a paper entitled “Disruption and Development: Pitch Processes in the Music of Ellen Taaffe Zwilich” at the annual meeting of the New England Conference of Music Theorists. This research is a small portion of my in-progress dissertation, which will provide an overview of Zwilich’s music from a transformational perspective. In recent weeks, I have presented similar material at the Women Composers Festival of Hartford Forum, the National Student Electronic Music Event/Temple University New Music Symposium, and the CUNY Graduate Center Composers Forum.
NECMT will be taking place at Tufts University April 12-13, and my presentation will be included on the 9:00 am session Saturday. A complete program and registration information can be found at NECMT’s website, necmt.org.
