Brett Kavanaugh hearings inspire concert responding to ‘a fraught moment’

By Brett Campbell | Special to The Oregonian/OregonLive

Reinkemeyer’s “Opening Up” weaves narrated excerpts of Ford’s testimony among phrases from a string quartet. Reinkemeyer had already written a piece for a Louisiana orchestra that touched on the Kavanaugh hearings in a metaphorical, indirect way.

“I wasn’t being openly political about it there,” she explained. “But I wanted to be very direct with this piece. I didn’t feel like I had the need or emotional energy to hide. This hurt me. I’m old enough that I remember the Anita Hill hearings” in 1991, in which another Republican Supreme Court nominee, Clarence Thomas, was confirmed despite a former subordinate’s sexual harassment accusations.

“It doesn’t feel like anything much changed,” Reinkemeyer said. “I was upset that they said, ‘She’s credible, but we’re going to choose him anyway.’ To have a group of senators say that it doesn’t matter is infuriating. I think you can hear honesty in music and I was honestly fed up when I wrote the piece — as a parent, as a teacher, as a woman myself.” link

Hearing injustice

Monday’s FearNoMusic concert features new music composed in response to last year’s Supreme Court confirmation battle over alleged sexual harassment

SEPTEMBER 19, 2019 // MUSIC // 

Timely & Timeless

While responding to current events is nothing new in pop music, it’s rarer in classical composition — but that’s been changing lately, Reinkemeyer and Bunch said. “My students have pushed me to be more forward about these things,” said Reinkemeyer, who grew up in Troutdale and taught outside Oregon before returning to her home state to join the music faculty at Linfield College. “I see them grappling with issues more openly in their music than we did. They’re used to hearing people talk and be open about social issues — they don’t have this reticence about addressing them. When we grew up, we got the message that you should keep this to yourself. With social media and blogs, they put it out online in a way that’s new. A lot of my students come at it with this punk attitude.”

She and Bunch both believe classical music brings unique authority to bear on today’s issues. “We have a richer harmonic palette that lets you explore complex emotional things without words, so people can bring their own meaning to them,” she says.

The Meanings of Music, Part One: Metabolizing Trauma

In part one of three, we turn to Fear No Music's "Hearings" concert to examine the intersection of music and meaning

NOVEMBER 28, 2019 // FEATUREDMUSIC // 
https://www.orartswatch.org/the-meanings-of-music-part-one-metabolizing-trauma/

Several questions haunted this journalist’s mind during a series of fall concerts put on by three of Portland’s most excellent classical groups: Fear No Music, Resonance Ensemble, and Third Angle New Music. The music was all good, but was often upstaged by the concerts’ messages and the questions they raised. These questions ended up being so big we’ve decided to dig deep and interrupt your Thanksgiving weekend with a three-parter.

... The second question: music itself

So what did these musicians have to say? What was the music actually like, and what did it express? Well, it expressed grief, rage, fear, sorrow–but the primary feeling was of music straining to convey these things. It wouldn’t quite be right to say they didn’t succeed, because I’m not speaking of artistic failure; the eight compositions were all well-written and well-performed, and I even discovered a new favorite local composer (Linfield College composition professor Andrea Reinkemeyer, whose Opening Up opened up the concert).

No, what I mean is that the music all had a sense of hopeless, helpless anguish, a complex shriek of pain and terror that seemed to say, above all, “and that doesn’t even begin to cover it.” A lot of the music had that “horror movie” sound we so easily associate with modern classical music: thickets of Bartóky post-tonal conterpoint in Opening Up, tinkly atonal chords in Stacy Fahrion’s The Summer of 1982: A Rape Culture Tango, creepy Mazzolian harmony in Daniel Felsenfeld’s Indelible in the Hippocampus is the Laughter, buzzy fluttertongue flute and sul ponticello bowing in Megan DiGeorgio’s I’m Terrified, close chromatic vocal harmonies on Ruby Fulton’s flowing more freely, brutally aggressive cello with overdriven electronics on Jack Gabel’s Summer of ‘82, Exhibit XXX, thundering bass drum and bowed crotales on Carolyn Quick’s Stop the Clock, agitated vibraphone on Matthew Packwood’s confrontation.

The vocal scoring and performances fit right in with the horror movie mood, Sarah Maines and Vakarė Petroliūnaitė veering adroitly from dramatic spoken words to grand operatic bel canto to outright sprechstimme. Many of the composers chose the same words from the hearings, which gave the show that familiar sense of tedious anxiety we all got from watching the drama shatter our feeds and break our hearts last year.

A few moments of text-setting were particularly effective. In Opening Up, Maines gave a dramatic reading of key lines from Dr. Ford’s testimony, reciting lines like “I thought he was going to rape me” over Reinkemeyer’s spooky, cinematic string quartet music.

Faculty Award:
Linfield College: Julie Olds and Thomas Hellie Creative Achievement Award
for the academic year 2018-2019 in recognition of outstanding creative work.
The faculty creative achievement award was established by President Thomas L. Hellie and his wife, Julie Olds, both of whom began their careers in the arts. The award is given annually to tenured or tenure-track faculty who have completed an outstanding creative work that has been recognized by their peers, and has been or is slated for dissemination in ways appropriate for the specific focus of the work. The recipient of this award is determined by the Dean of Faculty in consultation with one to two external evaluators. A stipend is provided for the year.
Reinkemeyer received the Julie Olds and Thomas Hellie Creative Achievement Award, which honors a faculty member whose outstanding creative activity has been recognized by peers and has been slated for dissemination. Reinkemeyer, a world-class composer, joined the Linfield faculty in 2014. Her music explores the interplay of visual metaphors, nature and sound to create lush textures against churning rhythmic figures. She has produced three professional recordings in the past 18 months — From Cycles of Eternity (2017), Saturation (2018) and in the speaking silence (2019). She has had premiere performances of newly commissioned pieces with the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra and the Post Haste Reed Duo, among others. She holds a B.M. from the University of Oregon and both M.M. and D.M.A. from the University of Michigan. (link)

Laurels
• Oregon composer Andrea Reinkemeyer was one of only three American composers to receive $15,000 Women Composers Commissions from the League of American Orchestras. (The Linfield College music professor’s fellow honorees, Stacy Garrop and Robin Holcomb, are well known in contemporary classical music circles.) Reinkemeyer’s new composition will be premiered by the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra in January 2019. Let’s hope an Oregon orchestra performs it soon. What we’ve heard of her music in Oregon makes her one of the state’s most promising compositional voices.

REVIEW: March/April 2017 A/B Duo
"...Andrea L. Reinkemeyer’s Wrought Iron for flute, vibraphone, bongos, tambourine, triangle, china cymbal, and splash cymbal is a musical response to a building, the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall. In a rather neat conceit, the various shapes used in the hall itself determine the types of instruments used: triangles are the obvious instance, but circles also (cymbals, bongos, tambourine) and rectangles (vibraphone). The architect also tried to make metal look like stone, and in the spirit of referencing others, the composer invokes the ghosts of Beethoven and Chopin, both of whom are to be found within the confines of the hall itself. There is an intricacy to the players’ interactions that seems, to the present writer at least, to invoke or reflect some sort of physical design. Ensemble between the two players needs to be particularly tight in this piece, and the result is indeed magical."
Colin Clarke, Fanfare Magazine (40:4)

"The piece takes on tropes like Debussy and Ravel, and possibly a little Stravinsky thrown in for good measure; it’s hauntingly melodic and fun, dancing and almost running its way forward. There may even be a little Zappa in the syncopation and in the whimsical handling of modes."
Marc Medwin, Fanfare Magazine (40:4)
