Wednesday@Noon Lecture

Ian Dicke, Assistant Professor, UCR Department of Music
Resourcing Creativity
The music of Ian Dicke is informed by the countless artistic impulses hidden within our daily lives and how new modes of musical expression can illuminate these experiences. This presentation features an overview of significant works Dicke has created over the last decade with particular attention to his integration of external source material in confronting contemporary social-political culture.

Ian Dicke is a composer inspired by social-political culture and interactive technology. Praised for his “refreshingly well-structured” (Feast of Music) and “uncommonly memorable” (Sequenza 21) catalogue of works, Dicke currently serves as an Assistant Professor of Composition at the University of California, Riverside. His music has been commissioned and performed by ensembles and festivals around the world, including the New World Symphony, Alarm Will Sound, the Cabrillo Festival Orchestra, ISCM World New Music Days, and the Atlantic Coast Center Band Director’s Association. He has received grants, awards, and recognition from the Fulbright Program, Barlow Endowment, Fulbright Program, San Francisco Conservatory of Music, New Music USA, New York Youth Symphony, ASCAP, and BMI, among others. In addition to his creative activities as a composer, Dicke is also the founder and curator of the Outpost Concert Series in Riverside, CA and is a former co-director of Fast Forward Austin, a music festival held annually in Austin, TX.
