Inspired by Nyman, the words and music of Shane W. Cadman

In this episode of Words On New Music Paul and I sat down in a Whittier, CA, neighborhood coffee shop for a chat with composer, musician, educator, promoter, manager of theater Shane W. Cadman about his musical work before and during his current tenure at the Ruth B. Shannon Center of the Performing Arts at Whittier College in Los Angeles.  This episode was our second interview for Words On New Music on my southern California ‘road trip’ this past October to officially meet Paul and our WONM guests.   Listen now!

screen-shot-2016-12-30-at-9-07-01-pmMeet Peter Thoegersen, Ph.D, whose name I have finally learned to spell.  Dr. Thoegersen is a composer, drummer, purveyor of all things microtonal and a witty satirical soul.  Paul and I caught up with him in his hometown of Ventura, CA, while I was out visiting Paul this past October.  We sat down with Peter in the relaxed atrium space at the Ventura pier.

In this podcast 4 of Peter’s works are featured – A Day By The Strand, Hypercube, Canto IV and VII.
