ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
About Clovice A. Lewis, Jr.

Clovice, who has composed numerous works ranging from ensemble to electronic and orchestral pieces, graduated from the prestigious College of Creative Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He began teaching as a freshman at the school, and upon completion of his studies, accepted a position as a Lecturer of Computer Music and Theory in 1978. He was shortly thereafter promoted to Associate Professor and taught until 1985. He was, at the time, one of the youngest professors in the UC system to hold such a position.

His pioneering work in the field of electronic music and composition led him to be noted as the most outstanding composer produced by the College of Creative Studies in the November 1985 issue of OMNI magazine in an article entitled "How To Build A Creative Scientist", which highlighted the achievements of the school and its graduates.

Lewis was the recipient of a University of California Undergraduate Fellowship from UCSB in 1975 to reproduce the scores and parts, as well as to attend the premiere performance of his first symphony, which was completed when he was 17 years old entitled "Portraits of the Gulfcoast". The piece was performed by the Gulfcoast Symphony Orchestra under the direction of James Shannon as part of their Bicentennial salute to American Composers.

During the past 40 years, the music Lewis has composed has been performed by numerous orchestras, including multiple concertos for various instruments. He is the recipient of numerous awards for composition, including the 1985 Cabrillo Music Festival award for outstanding composition for a string quartet composed in 1976. In June of 1993, his Concerto for Violoncello and Computer was hailed as a breakthrough piece when it was performed for the Old First Church series of concerts which showcases exceptional Northern California composers.

What Clovice says About The "Summer" Album

These are the latest jazz pieces I have composed for my virtual band, "Many of One". "Many of One" refers to the fact that the computer plays all parts for me. Nothing in these pieces is improvised in this virtual jazz combo. My intention was to create music that sounds like it is improvised so that musicians who read music can enjoy playing jazz. I have been using the "Notion" notation program from PreSonus that has the most impressive sound production capability of anything on the market. Finally, I can express what is really going on in my head!
