Contemporary Music Concert
Features Composer Castiglioni

F,

DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN

By FRED MORDEN
One of the leading figures
among the younger generation of
European composers, Niccolo Cas-
tiglioni will be the guest com-
poser-pianist for "Contemporary
Directions," a special concert of
new music to be presented in Hill
Auditorium Wednesday, Feb. 15 at
8:90 p.m. The composer, who joins
the faculty of the School of Music
this term as a visiting lecturer in
comopsition, is -a native of Milan.
The program, organized by the
Composition Department, will pre-
sent four works by Castiglioni. As
piano soloist the composer will
perform his "Inizio di movimento,"
and with, flutist Erich Graf, his
composition entitled, - "Gymel."
Soloist Sheryl Cohen will be heard
in a performance of his "Con-
sonante" for solo flute and cham-
ber orchestra,' conducted by Jack
Fortner. The evening will close
with ."Tropi" written for chamber
ensemble and conducted by. Syd-
ney Hodkinson.
The concert will also feature the
Ann Arbor premiere of Jack Fort-
ner's "S pr ING," which was
awarded the 1966 International'
Composition Prize sponsored by
the FoundationRoyaumont of
Paris. Untillately a resident of
Grand Rapids,, the comrposer has
recently been appointed to the
faculty of the School of Music. The
composition is a setting of four
poems by e.e. cumings for solo,
voice and instrumental ensemble
and will oresented by the com-
poser's wife, guest soprano Phyllis
Perry Fortner and conducted by
Fortner...
In a recent interview Castiglioni
was asked if "form" was out as a
technique in music today. Castigli-
oni recognizes form as being very
basic to man. It appears in many
different ways. So-.also should it
apear in many way in music. At
a time when lyric melodies were
the important element in com-
position, form could be established
by alternating these melodies with
each other (melody I-melody II-
melody I-melody III-melody L
thus rondo, or sonata, or song and
trio, etc.) One of the problems of
listening to contemporai'y music
Castiglioni feels is this 19th cen-
t u r y approach. Contemporary
music must be listened to as an
entity in sound, purely for its
combinations, relationships, and
effects of sound. Thus this alter-'

hating of melody in the 19th cen-
tury takes shape in constructed
sounds in todays music.
Castiglioni views "form" as the
result of proportions. Some music-
al ideas that are weak in energy
are often overdone musically when
theirs "substance " is inherently
small and subtle. At the same
time there can be a tendency not
to fully exploit the potential ener-
gy of an idea. He feels that
achieving full presentation of ma-
terial proportional to their in-
herent characteristics is a large
part of success as a composer. And
if through careful research the
composer can construct his ideas
to balance with each other he has
established a kind of "form" that

is limited only by the composers
sensitivity to each ideas, poten-
tialities.
Because this concern will be
one of "new music" of which few
of us have litle knowledge. Castig-
lioni was asked what he would
suggest we use as a focal point
from which a greater appreciation
of his music could be achieved.
Today composers like Cage and
Stravinsky have changed the lofty,
philosophical approach to a more
objective view he said. "New
music" dtals with the "substance
of sound" as an entity. It is not
concerned with the often misinter-
preted inner meaning which many
people seem to demand before they
accept a composition.

Studying Color Blindness

DAVID MILLER

Speaking on:

THE CORNERSTONE PROJECT

By JIM HECK
Persons with color blindness or
other eye diseases are needed at
the University's Vision Research
Institute for furthering the insti-
tute's studies of color blindness.
An important factor in pro-
ducing a, valid study is that sub-
jects should come from all races.
G. L. Lee, an experimental psy-
chologist, noted' that last year's
study consisted of predominantly
Caucasians, and he hoped that this
timep ersonsĀ° from various races
would take interest.
Last year's study resulted in
the speculation that persons with
tritanous eyes (persons whose axis
of confusion is oriented to blue
and yellow, rather than red and
green), also have an eye disease.
Also revealed was the fact that a
person's ability to detect the
brightness of a light is independ-
ent of that person's ability to de-
tect color.
The current interest, Lee stated,
is: centered about "prototopes."
Prototopes are tiny cones in the
eye that detect the color red.
Current speculation suggests that
the turning or disorienting of these
cones hinders a person's ability
to detect red.
Lee commented that persons
with color blindness or other eye
diseases frequently don ot know
they have a disease at all. He re-
marged that a student seeing an

article in The Daily last year
wanted to turn his roommate in
for studies, because "he could see
so well in the dark." After an in-
vestigation it utrned out that the
student had night blindness,hand
his roommate: perfect eyes.
