A Musical Meditation
on Spiritual Evolution
Friday, February 11th, 2005
In this program, pianist and composer Seth Osburn will discuss his original composition, SEVEN, a solo piece based on the seven stages of alchemical transformation. He composed SEVEN during two years of intense research and meditation, and will discuss the ways in which his study of alchemy and related disciplines influenced the unique musical language of this work. He will also convey the key themes, symbols, and psychological progression inherent in each of the seven alchemical stages. The program will conclude with a performance of SEVEN, a forty-minute composition for piano that is a musical meditation on spiritual evolution and transcendence.
