Center for the Arts Symposium
Beyond Notation: An Earle Brown Symposium
Northeastern Center for the Arts, with support from the Earle Brown Music Foundation, presents a two-day symposium on American avant-garde composer Earle Brown (1926–2002). A native of Massachusetts, Brown studied at Northeastern University and Schillinger House (now Berklee College of Music) before establishing his career in New York and Europe as a groundbreaking composer and conductor of graphic notation and “open form” music. An international group of presenters from music, art, and dance will examine the life and musical legacy of Earle Brown.
