Oswego, NY- On March 2 nd and 3 rd , Oswego State welcomed Electroacoustic Composer Mark Snyder, Soprano Paige Naylor, and harpist Becky Brown.
Mark specializes in mixing ambient multimedia works along with rich storytelling. The work he produces contains meaning in many different forms including events from his own life.
Mark performs with various instruments featuring the clarinet, tuba, accordion, piano, and guitar.
“When I have feeling that I want to express, I don’t always express them in words as well as I can in sound and life so that’s what I like to experiment with trying to communicate with people with what I sonically represent of human emotions and characters so I love doing it I wouldn’t want to do anything else,” Snyder said.
Cara Thompson was one of the audience members amazed with Snyder’s performance.
“It’s just amazing the combination of technology and video and the music was just incredibly compelling and powerful,” she said.
Snyder and his crew will continue performing all around while creating new pieces of work for people to enjoy.
