Sunday February 25: Stephen Parkinson

Bio: Stephen Parkinson
Stephen Parkinson studied composition in Waterloo, San Diego and Victoria with Rudolf Komorous, John Celona, Michael Longton, Owen Underhill and Roger Reynolds. His piece Desires Are Already Memories is recorded by Arraymusic on their New World c.d. and Eve Egoyan has recorded two of his compositions for piano: Rainbow Valley on her disc, thethingsinbetween and Trail on The Art of Touching the Keyboard.
Stephen’s main compositional practice involves writing for do-it-yourself situations featuring himself and various friends (with various musical backgrounds) as performers, reacting to a variety of methods of prescription/notation, involving toy instruments/electronics/vintage turntables/ field recordings as well as more traditional musical instruments.

Stephen writes about his work for this performance:
