Daniel Stepner: Mixed Doubles

Daniel Stepner: Mixed Doubles

Presented by UC Davis Department of Music at Ann E. Pitzer Center

The solo violin music of J.S. Bach and UC Davis Professor Wayne Slawson, emeritus, are paired together for “mixed doubles.”

Daniel Stepner recently retired from nearly thirty years as a violinist with the Lydian String Quartet. He actively gives recitals, maintains a private violin studio, and is a chamber music coach. He is also Artistic Director of the Aston Magna Festival, which does summer concerts at Brandeis, Bard College, and Simon’s Rock College.

Slawson’s compositions include works for various chamber ensembles, chorus, and orchestra. He is best known for his theories about an aspect of timbre called “sound color” and his compositions of computer music that apply those theories. His programming system, SYNTAL, is an adaptation of a computer speech synthesizer to music composition. He has published in the fields of computer music, psychoacoustics, and music theory.
