Composer Barry Schrader is featured on the first interview of a new podcast series Alive and Composing, created by Innova Recordings under the direction of Philip Blackburn, right. Innova is one of the leading labels for new music by American composers.
The series premieres with an interview with Barry Schrader, a leading composer of electro-acoustic music whose work is recorded on the Innova label.
This podcast is presented in conjunction with the Barry Schrader: Soundworld concert celebrating Schrader’s 60th birthday at REDCAT on February 22nd, as well as the forthcoming release of Schrader’s new CD Fallen Sparrow on Innova.
In conjunction with the Alive and Composing series and Schrader’s interview, Blackburn has started the Composers Forum Group on GATHER. This group will function as a discussion group on new music and also allow listeners to communicate with composers featured in the Alive and Composing podcasts on iTunes.
Schrader’s compositions for electronics, dance, film, video, mixed media, live/electro-acoustic music combinations, and real-time computer performance have been presented throughout the world. He has received recognition in the form of grants, awards, and commissions, from numerous organizations and has recently been awarded a Copland Grant through Innova Recordings.
