Composer Alejandro Rutty Discusses His New Release "The conscious sleepwalker"

Mon. 2/06 9:30p: Composer, conductor and music advocate, Argentinian Alejandro Rutty joins us to share his new album "The conscious sleepwalker" to be released this month.  

Alejandro Rutty’s compositional output includes orchestral, chamber and mixed- media music, arrangements of Argentine traditional music, and innovative outreach musical projects. A unique feature of Rutty’s music is its affection for textures suggested by modern recording processing techniques, and the use of Tango — a genre he performs as a pianist — and other South American genres as part of the music’s surface. 

Alejandro Rutty, University of North Carolina at Greensboro professor, and a graduate of UNM, was the creator and developer of the Hey, Mozart! - Child Composer Project New Mexico.
