This week sees local composer Teri Card Heller guest hosting with me! We take a little bit of time to talk about her music, and listen to music she's written and music she likes. Furthermore, she's got a show this Thursday (the 12th, at 8 pm) at Teatro Scarpino! She's really cool (and the first composer to endorse Over Mozart's Dead Body!), so make sure to listen and go to her show.
Here's her official bio: Teri Card Heller is a local classical composer who works from her studio in Fayetteville, Arkansas, where she composes for mostly films and chamber concerts. In the majority of her music, Teri aims to express human universals - emotions, life experiences, thoughts, and dreams - through both the abstract and programmatic nature of music. With a broad range of influences - including Minimalism, Baroque, various 19th and 20th century Russian and French composers, film music, Balinese gamelan, and African rhythms - Teri enjoys writing for any ensemble and medium. Teri has a Master of Fine Arts in music composition from California Institute of the Arts. She has studied through scholarships in Ireland and Japan, has had a performance of her large-ensemble work, “Glorious Youth,” at RedCat Disney Hall in downtown LA, and was a grant recipient and film music intern in LA through the “Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.” Her music is often described as intense and moving - with rhythmic pulses, lyrical melodies, and moody harmonies.
