OPSU to Present "60x60"

Dr. Matthew C. Saunders, music department chair on 03/18/2010 Goodwell, Okla. — Oklahoma Panhandle State University will present the nationally renowned music experience 60x60 in its latest version on Thursday, March 25 at 7 p.m. in Centennial Theatre on the OPSU Campus.

60x60 is a unique presentation of 60 one-minute recorded compositions for all media by composers from around the country and around the world. The music will be played back through the theatre's excellent sound system while a clock counts down the minutes to help the audience keep track of the elapsed time. The music will be in a wide range of styles and demonstrate musical techniques from across the spectrum of composition.

This event is a project of the New York-based composer's organization Vox Novus, and is the brainchild of composer Robert Voisey. The version presented at OPSU will be the International Mix of winners of the 2009 contest. 60x60 has become a larger phenomenon, with several "regional" mixes, and the acclaimed 60x60 Dance, which pairs sixty choreographers with sixty composers and sixty dance companies in the Winter Garden of New York's World Financial Center. 2010 marks the beginning of a new project, 60x60 Orchestra, which solicited one-minute compositions for symphony orchestra, with the resulting work to be performed beginning in the Fall of 2010.

Generous support for this presentation and all guest artists at OPSU is provided in part by the First National Bank of Texhoma.

Admission and parking is free for all audience members, and no tickets are required. For further information, please contact Matthew Saunders, music department chair at (580) 349-1483 or matthew.saunders@opsu.edu.
