Some of the most eery, spooky, beautiful, spacey, imaginative and inventive sounds have been emanating from musicians at USF's SYCOM, one of the most acclaimed music programs in the Southeast, established in the early 1970s.

This evening at 7:30 p.m. you can hear electroacoustic premieres from musicians studying under University of South Florida professor Paul Reller at the USF School of Music Concert Hall (relocated from Barness Recital Hall).

"Tonight's SYCOM concert will be strictly electronic playback, though we often have concerts with a live element," says Reller. "It will be about an hour and fifteen or so with short videos of the composers introducing their pieces."

Included is a piece by graduate student Jeremy Adams, who has has recently visited England to lecture and perform his electronic music. Participant Joey Bourdeau, who performs "Murderdragon," is a composition and music education student who incorporates theatrics and relies heavily on color and timbre. Tyler Kline, who brings us the joint "ligament," has been described by composer James Grant as "fresh and engaging, with an organic, sophisticated melodic savvy." And "Superfluous Adjectives" are described by Susanna Hancock, a versatile musician who has performed internationally in acoustic ensembles, electronic media and pop music.
