"Mediated Nature" is the theme of this year's installment of the UVA music department's annual celebration of experimental composers, this time around including soundscape artist Douglas Quin, the Praxis String Quartet and pieces involving Slovakian fujara flutes and humpback whale songs reinterpreted on cello and tape loops, the latter closing with an improvisation based on the whale language patterns rather than any man-made musical scale.
