Steven Mackey



Composer Steven Mackey brings his music to the Clocktower, en route to a rehearsal with the Ensemble ACJW at Julliard. Mackey is known for merging, bridging, or gently refusing to observe the gaps between various musical genres, most notably in works for electric guitar with classical ensembles. His work has been performed by world class ensembles such as the Kronos String Quartet and he has composed music for Bill Frisell, Joey Baron, the Paul Dresher Ensemble, and the L.A. Symphony Orchestra among many, many others. Mackey talks about playing electric guitar in rock bands in college and how his natural inclination to try new things lead him into uncharted territory. (37 minutes)
