Walden Online Workshop: Exploring Microtonality in Guitar Repertoire

Wednesday, March 31, 2021
7:30pm Eastern/4:30pm Pacific
Zoom video call

Presented by Dan Lippel, guitar

Dan Lippel, guitarist and 2019 visiting artist at The Walden School’s Young Musicians Program, presents an exploration of alternate tunings and fretting systems in guitar repertoire as a window into microtonality, well temperaments, and different divisions of the octave. We will hear excerpts of guitar repertoire composed by Ken Ueno, Vineet Shende, Laura Schwartz, Chris Trapani, Taylor Brook, Wang Lu, and Paul Clift, as well as Takemitsu, Bach and Dowland. Dan will demonstrate different tunings and temperaments on standard guitars as well as guitars with fretting systems in different equal divisions of the octave and well temperaments.

This workshop is free and open to all!
