Joseph Klein’s Cornell Set at Cornell University

Joseph Klein’s Cornell Set (a computer music setting of four poems by Cornell University poets) was commissioned by the Creative Writing Program and the Department of English at Cornell University, where Klein was a guest artist in April 2011. The residency included seminars with student poets and culminated in the premiere performance of Cornell Set, along with Klein’s 2005 work Three Poems from Felt (after Alice Fulton), performed by the respective poets. A video of this performance is on the Cornell Cast website, and an interview with Dr. Klein concerning the workmay be heard at the Writers at Cornell website. Subsequent performances of Cornell Set have taken place at the University of North Texas (October2011), the 13th Biennial Arts and Technology Symposium at Connecticut College (March 2012), andthe Sichuan Conservatory of Music in Chengdu, China (May 2012).
