Hurd performs free concert Saturday at CSMA

The Community School of Music and Arts has scheduled a free concert featuring award-winning composer George Hurd 7:30 p.m. Saturday in CSA’s Tateuchi Hall, 230 San Antonio Circle, Mountain View.

Hurd plans to perform pieces from his newest endeavor, “Echolocation.” The project uses Hurd’s location-specific audio recordings to enhance his music about places across Europe, New Zealand, North America and Africa. The recordings are woven together with an array of percussive beats, warped recordings of classical instruments and sounds from street musicians.

In addition, the performance will include lighting and immersive video projections synced with the music.

Hurd is a San Francisco-based composer whose arrangements focus on a fusion of classical and hyper-rhythmic electronic music. His work concentrates on memory and geography, creating music woven from a library of sound he captures on his travels.

Hurd is known for his electroacoustic chamber group, The Hurd Ensemble, which has performed at venues across the United States, including the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., and the Palace of Fine Arts Theatre in San Francisco.
