Description of Work

Exposure as a musical artist, performer, and educator is absolutely essential to growth, professional development, and outreach capabilities of today’s professional musician. Next to live performance, attracting exposure to yourself in the form of technology – specifically video and audio representations of musical compositions and events – are at the forefront of what is necessary to promote new music publications, build your resume, recruit students, reach audiences, connect with composers, and to gain credibility and visibility as an artist and educator. The accessibility of online video and audio recordings is the main method through which today’s student consumes, studies, shares, and discovers music within recreation and academia. If a new musical composition is to become available as a publication, an HD video and/or audio example is expected as a supplemental example to accompany the sheet music, often resulting in embedded videos as part of music publication websites. Thus, a professional HD representation is necessary. In the spring of 2017, Dr. Andrea Venet was awarded a UNF Technology Grant which resulted in the purchase of a high-definition 4K sony camcorder on behalf of the percussion department at the school of music. All of the publications and videos submitted are a result of collaboration between Dr. Andrea Venet and UNF music students from the percussion, music technology, and string departments, utilizing the 4K camera to document creative activity lead by Venet. The contents of this faculty showcase submission include five recent projects done between May 2017 and May 2018 which involve Dr. Andrea Venet and students from the UNF school of music. These videos showcase performances of new compositions, publications and live performances in a high-definition format. The first video collection, Solo Suite BWV1011/995 for solo marimba, is a recording project done as a result of research done, and lectures given around the country by Dr. Venet entitled Affekt and Execution: Historical Performance Practice and Contemporary Techniques for Performing Bach on Marimba. The second video, Kibo is a recording project done of Venet’s new composition for solo snare drum and mallet quartet. Performed by Dr. Venet and her UNF percussion students, the piece was published in October of 2017 through Tapspace. The third video, Faded Lines, is another new composition for percussion duo, which was also recently published by Tapspace in October of 2017. The fifth video submission, LIgNEouS I, by Andy Akiho, is a live performance given from Venet’s faculty recital in February of 2018. A challenging collaboration of new chamber music between different instrumental genres, this piece was recorded with the 4K camera and involved intense preparation by Dr. Venet and dedicated members of the UNF string department. The final video submission is a high-definition recording project done of Venet’s arrangement of Nannou, composed by electronic pop musician Aphex Twin. Video edits and audio recording session was lead by UNF Music Technology student Thomas Lewis. This arrangement is published by Keyboard Percussion Publications (www.MostlyMarimba.com).
