Abstract

Zhen Han presents an original completion of Franz Schubert's Eighth Symphony in the form of an animated music video. Using fragments of Schubert's bass line, Han recasts the melody for motley crew of acoustic and electric instruments and filters the most recognizable motives through a jazz lens. The video will feature original, animated artwork by Zhen Han, and a recorded performance of Han's take on Schubert 8, with the composer on string bass and electric bass and guest artists: Trevor Nykaza on classical guitar, faculty member Jim Cox on String Bass, and LFC alumn Carolyn Miller on Clarinet.
