Compose Carolina: Noah Balamucki
July 2 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Fall and Take Flight is co-composed by NYU grad students Noah Balamucki and Fadi Khoury, in honor of the sci-fi films they grew up on. Fadi’s gritty guitar-and-synthscape mode of writing expresses itself in the piece’s first half: a dystopian landscape not dissimilar to the ravaged Manhattan of the film Escape from New York (any likeness to the composers’ actual escape from Manhattan in mid-March is purely coincidental). This dark material eventually evolves into Noah’s ode to the idealist future of Star Trek, and draws inspiration from the Trek scores by Jerry Goldsmith, James Horner, and Cliff Eidelman.
Compose Carolina: Summer Music Series
UNC Department of Music and Carolina Performing Arts are thrilled to co-host Compose Carolina, a weekly livestream concert series highlighting UNC Music’s composition student and alumni musicians’ original compositions, with conversations led by UNC Department of Music faculty members.
Each week, we’ll welcome a new Carolina composer, including alumni Eliana Fishbeyn, Noah Balamucki, and Christian Cail and students David Green, Alex McKeveny, and James Larkins, who will explore the theme “Looking Forward”—from the literal to the metaphorical—through an original musical piece and performance. They’ll be joined in conversation by UNC Department of Music professors Allen Anderson, Stephen Anderson, and Lee Weisert.
