Described as having “a sense of refinement, flair, and technical prowess,” pianist Brianna Matzke brings the refreshing and thought-provoking “Response Project” to Kent State University. The «Response Project” is a commissioning initiative that asks composers to write a piece of music in response to a pre-existing work or idea. In the latest project, titled “Something is Happening Here,” composers of diverse cultural backgrounds responded to Bob Dylan's seminal 1965 album “Highway 61 Revisited”—a timeless and relatable meditation on fear, uncertainty, and social division in America.

Repertoire:
-This Train, Blue Shine (2018) by Aurie Hsu
Response to “It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry”

-HWY61RVSTD (2018) by Rob Deemer
Response to “Highway 61 Revisited”

-Izaya (2018) by Marc Mellits
Response to “Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues”

-From Desolation Row (2018) by Sara Corry
Response to “Desolation Row”

Previous “Response Projects” include “The Stockhausen Response Project” (2015-16) and “ON BEHALF: new works for violin + piano.” The first project asked five composers to responded to Karlheinz Stockhausen’s historic electroacoustic piece “Mikrophonie” while the second asked seven composers to respond to the phrase “on behalf.” Learn more about past projects and “Something is Happening Here” at https://theresponseproject.org/.
