Marsyas Productions logoThe Electric Circus was a late 1960’s phenomenon. Mel Powell, born 100 years ago, was a force there. Powell started out writing music for kids for the Benny Goodman Orchestra, but he gradually grew tired of that. One thing led to another and soon we see him circulating with Milton Babbitt and Bethany Beardsley. Take note of the soundscape Mel Powell created for a short Gumbie movie.

"For the past 30 years, Composers Concordance has been a booster for local composers, through both its concerts across the city and a record label." The Wall Street Journal

"Enterprising new music organization" The New York Times

Composer Concordance logo"The Composers Concordance folks are unpredictable and at times refreshingly irreverent in a reverent sort of way….ingenious fun” Classical-Modern Music Review

“Edgy…boisterous…demanding our attention” San Diego Story

"These men and women are creating exciting music with elements of jazz, world music and many experimental techniques blended with equal parts classical tradition and playing techniques." Music Notes: Classical music evolves by Carlton Wilkinson
