The MSU School of Music welcomes guest performing artist and composer, Paul Rudy, with a public lecture in Reynolds Recital Hall on Thusrday, January 29th at 11:00 am in Howard Hall, Reynolds Recital Hall.
Paul Rudy has been called "The High Priest of Sound" and "Sage." He has composed for orchestra, film, electronics and guided improvisation, in addition to a practice of performing, sound meditation/healing, and facilitating workshops on all manner of sound as sacred activity. His work plays in the sounds of Mother Earth: balancing conservatory training with shamanic practices and subtle energies, which guide his performance and composition. He is a Rome Prize (2010), Guggenheim (2008), Fulbright (1997) and Wurlitzer Foundation (2007 and 2009) Fellow, and his music has won two Global Music Awards (2012, for Innovation in Sound and Mixing/Editing), the Sounds Electric '07 (Dublin), EMS Prize (Sweden), and Citta di Udine (Prize ex aequo, Italy) competitions, to name a few. He is a Curators' Professor and Coordinator of Composition at the University of Missouri at Kansas City, Conservatory, where he received the Kauffman Award for Artistry (2008). In 1994 he completed the Colorado Grand Slam after climbing all 54 of Colorado's 14,000 ft peaks. Six CD's in his series "Aquarian Stories" are available at CDBaby. Infinity (duo with Heidi Svoboda), has been transforming lives since 2010.
