Quick update from guitar professor, Peter Yates

July 6th, 2011 · 11 Comments

Peter Yates, professor of guitar in the Music Department, sent in this short note about his summer activities:

“My summer begins with performances on bowed guitar (arpeggione) at the Los Angeles Guitar Festival, and then moves on to various recording projects. These include “Four Bagatelles” for two guitars by UCLA MFA alumnus Buzz Gravelle, “Five Hobo Dreams” for arpeggione and guitar, by Eric Pham, and three of my own songs performed with UCLA Musicology graduate-student Alex Grabarchuk. The recording of Volume One of my PopArt song project (texts by Darwin, Karl Marx, Beatrice Wood, Black Elk, etc.) now complete, will be in production, freeing me up to continue work on volume two. Aside from dabbing my toes in pristine mountain lakes, that’s about it.”
