Music: Ian Dicke
Dance: Evangeline Reilly
American born composer and performer Ian Dicke creates works textured by overlapping musical cultures. His compositions have received many honors and distinctions including the Jim Highsmith Orchestral Award and a MetLife Creative Connections grant from Meet the Composer. His music has been presented by The Cabrillo Festival Orchestra under the direction of Marin Alsop, Capital M, the 16mm Orchestra, Gamma-UT, and the Midwest Composers Symposium. He is fascinated with the juxtaposition of simple pop tunes with strange timbres and intonations found in Southeast Asian music. A brief homage, Ranaat Eek is named for the high pitched metallophones of Thailand and Cambodia.
