Their newest multidisciplinary collaboration\, Undertale LIVE\, is an interactive adventure based on Toby Fox’s indie video game hit. With new music arrangements by Eric Roth with Chris Opperman\, their performance features Fifth House Ensemble’s acoustic dectet performing the award-winning Undertale soundtrack on drum set and electronics informed by in-game visuals and audience-guided improvisations. \nOne of the most acclaimed video games of the past decade\, solo developer Toby Fox’s indie hit Undertale has enchanted a fanbase of nearly 4 million players worldwide through its heartwarming story\, quirky characters\, and Fox’s own trailblazing musical score. Undertale introduces players to a secret world of monsters who were sealed underground long ago with an ingenious twist in perspective: players can resolve each encounter nonviolently\, inviting us to empathize with those most different from ourselves. \n \n\nFifth House Ensemble\nMelissa Ngan\, flute\nGrace Hong\, oboe\nElizandro Garcia-Montoya\, clarinet\nEric Heidbreder\, bassoon\nParker Nelson\, horn\nChuck Bontrager\, violin\nSixto Franco\, viola\nHerine Coetzee Koschak\, cello\nAlex Goodin\, bass\nKatherine Petersen\, piano\nEmerson Hunton\, percussion\nEric Roth\, music director \nNate Horsfall\, Video Production\nTrevor Alan Gomes\, In-Game Capture\nDan Visconti\, Artistic Director\nAlexandra Olsavsky\, Director of Operations and Production\nSola Gbadebo\, Programmer \nVideo by Grittani Creative \n“UNDERTALE”® is a trademark of Royal Sciences\, LLC\, registered in the U.S. Musical compositions are © Royal Sciences\, LLC and under license to Materia Collective\, LLC\, d/b/a Materia Collections (ASCAP)\, and are used with permission.

Members of Fifth House Ensemble share tools and processes for developing new creative work in rehearsal using online platforms\, both for remote recording and remote live performance. As an extension of the best practices that are universal whether in person or remote\, this workshop includes strategies for planning\, rehearsal preparation and etiquette\, remote collaboration tools (including hardware and software)\, and artistic process. \nOpen to Shenandoah University students. This workshop is relevant to performers\, composers\, ensembles or any combination\, and will be of interest to students/faculty who are developing creative work remotely using online platforms for collaboration. \nAudience Interests: Music Performance\, Composition\, Music Education\, Music Therapy \nJoin Zoom Meeting \nMeeting ID: 835 1517 1111 | Passcode: 232750 \n\nDEEP LISTENING THROUGH MUSIC (60 minutes)\nWednesday\, October 7 at 2PM (EST)\nFirst pioneered by composer Pauline Oliveros after an inspiring trip to a cistern with a 40-second reverb near Seattle\, Deep Listening is a practice with a number of community and education intersections motivated by the idea that making and experiencing music is everyone’s birthright. Through an array of activities including active listening walks\, rhythmic machines\, improvised text scores\, and movement exercises\, Deep Listening provides an astonishing array of tools for communal music-making. Strategies for guiding improvised compositions as well as designing musical experiences for participants of all backgrounds will be explored\, as we experience how Deep Listening’s emphasis on mindfulness and play can transform people’s sense of agency and bring about new ways of relating to one’s environment. \nOpen to general audiences; no musical background necessary. Deep Listening work is excellent for mindfulness\, centering\, creativity and community-building in wide contexts. This workshop is relevant to music students and the general student body; and will be of interest to artists\, students and educators who might want to use the practice in their own creative or community-focused work. \nAudience Interests: Music Therapy\, Music Education\, Music/Theatre/Dance Performance \nJoin Zoom Meeting \nMeeting ID: 840 0631 3971 | Passcode: 040653 \n\nBUILDING COMMUNITY THROUGH MUSIC & GAMING (60 minutes)\nWednesday\, October 7 at 6PM (EST)\nIn 2016\, Fifth House Ensemble teamed up with composer Austin Wintory to create the first fully interactive performance version of his Grammy-nominated score to Journey\, responsive to live game play. The project was funded on Kickstarter\, raising $52\,505 from over 1\,100 backers worldwide. In this workshop\, we discuss the genesis of this project\, which sits at the intersection of art\, music and technology\, as well as how to build community through an effective crowdfunding campaign. \nOpen to general audiences; no musical background necessary. This workshop is relevant to students who are interested in music\, cross-disciplinary and gaming projects\, as well as anyone who would like to learn more about how (and why) to structure and run a successful crowdfunding campaign. \nAudience Interests: E-Sports\, Composition\, Music Performance \nJoin Zoom Meeting \nMeeting ID: 871 5680 3720 | Passcode: 669943 \n\n  \n\n\nCOMPOSER SESSIONS\nOpen to Shenandoah Conservatory composition students only. \n\nCOMPOSER READINGS (Initial Feedback)\nMonday\, October 5 at 11AM (EST)\nJoin Zoom Meeting \nMeeting ID: 897 9518 5884 | Passcode: 540530 \n\nCOMPOSER MASTERCLASS\nFriday\, October 9 at 11AM (EST)\nJoin Zoom Meeting \nMeeting ID: 822 6654 9424 | Passcode: 923854 \n\nFINAL COMPOSITION SHARING SESSION\nFriday\, December 4 at 11AM (EST)\nJoin Zoom Meeting \nMeeting ID: 853 4515 8150 | Passcode: 309633 \n\n\nThis engagement of Fifth House Ensemble is made possible through the ArtsCONNECT program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts. \n\nPhoto by Karjaka Studios (Photo taken before February 2020) URL: LOCATION:Online Performance CATEGORIES:CP4U,Featured,Guest Artist Performance,Shenandoah New Music,Upcoming ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:©KarjakaStudios.jpg END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
