It’s been a few weeks now since the Alumni Concert and now that things have settled back down for me I realized I had not spent time to reflect on the concert…
The Alumni Concert at the University of Georgia was such a nice event. It was a real joy to see so many old friends whom were fellow students when I was there at the University, getting to catch up with them in both their lives and in their music. I saw a few old Professors there as well and was very glad to reconnect with them. I was very happy to be able o share my piece at this concert with my friends and professors as well the rest of the audience.
I think that it’s a real credit to my old professor, Dr. Leonard V. Ball, that he put in so much effort to put on such a great concert, and perhaps more importantly that he has had so many students who have gone on to explore many different interests in electronic music. I think it wasn’t only techniques he taught(though he does this very well), but also a sense of exploration that we all took with us when we left that school, and that I think is so much more important.
All in all it was a very warm and positive experience to be back in Athens with this fine group of people. I only hope that we will all be able to see each other more often in the future.
