Andrea Mazzariello: Wake/Rise
Wake/Rise, an evening of performance, presents three artists grappling with their physical limits, technologically extending their bodies with a variety of tools, musical and otherwise. We welcome donations in support of immigrants in our community.
Andrea Mazzariello is a visiting Assistant Professor of Music at Carleton College teaching composition, music technology, and music fundamentals as . He directs the composition program at the Sō Percussion Summer Institute in Princeton, NJ, a position he’s held since July of 2013. Active in the Northfield community, he volunteers as a musical mentor at the Northfield Union of Youth, serves on the Prairie Creek Community School Arts Committee, and runs One More Revolution Records.
His concert music has been performed internationally by leading contemporary music ensembles. His percussion ensemble and percussion solo works are a staple on recitals at colleges and universities, performed widely and consistently by a rising generation of players eager to commission and advocate for new repertoire. SEAMUS and New Amsterdam Records have released recordings of his electronic and chamber music.
In 2011, he completed his Ph.D. in Music Composition at Princeton University, writing on the vinyl resurgence and its connection to our ideas of physicality and abstraction in music analysis.
