Mashup

by Jocelyn Hagen

This EP combines popular songs with classical compositions. "The A Team" is sung over Debussy's lyrical and virtuosic piano work "Doctor Gradus Ad Parnassum." And, yes, she plays and sings it at the same time.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The music on MASHUP is a new and exciting venture for award-winning composer/performer Jocelyn Hagen. Spending most of her time in the classical world of composition and performance, in 2013 she felt the need to go back to her roots as a singer/songwriter. There are no new compositions on the EP, but a combination of popular and classical, old and new, and each track sounds completely fresh and anything but ordinary. Audience members are amazed by her capability to play classical piano compositions and sing at the same time. She is joined by award-winning cellist Kirsten Whitson on two of the tracks.


BIOGRAPHY:
Jocelyn Hagen (b.1980), a native of Valley City, North Dakota, composes music that has been described as “dramatic and deeply moving” (Star Tribune, Minneapolis/St. Paul). Her first forays into composition were via songwriting, and this is very evident in her work. The majority of her compositional output is for voice: solo, chamber and choral. In 2012 she collaborated with choreographer Penelope Freeh to create Slippery Fish, a quartet for 2 dancers, soprano and viola, and the piece was reviewed as "completely original in all respects." (Star Tribune, Minneapolis/St. Paul). Currently she is Artist-in-Residence at the North Dakota State University School of Music, where she teaches, writes curriculum and brings in collaborators to perform her work.

Jocelyn holds degrees in Theory, Composition, and Vocal Music Education from St. Olaf College, as well as a Masters degree in Composition from the University of Minnesota. Her training also includes summer study at the European American Musical Alliance in Paris, France, where she studied with Philip Lasser of the Juilliard School of Music. Other former teachers include Judith Lang Zaimont, Peter Hamlin, David Maslanka, Mary Ellen Childs, and Timothy Mahr.

As a performer, Jocelyn began piano lessons at the age of three and became a professional accompanist by the age of 15. In 2000 she won first place in the Klatzkin Contemporary Keyboard Competition at Arizona State University (Alexina Louie, "Music for Piano"), and in 2003 soloed with the St. Olaf Orchestra (Francis Poulenc, "Piano Concerto, first movement"). For several years she specialized in the performance of 20th and 21st century art song, performing and touring with soprano Jennifer Kult as the Linden Duo.
