Sarah Gibson wins Left Coast Composition Contest

USC Thornton Composition faculty member Sarah Gibson has just been announced as the winner of the 2019 Left Coast Competition Contest for her composition I prefer living in color. As part of the grand prize, the Left Coast Chamber Ensemble will perform the piece during their 2019-20 season. Gibson wrote I prefer living in color for bass clarinet, violin, viola, cello, piano and percussion and was inspired by David Hockney’s Snail’s Pace, a painted landscape of shapes with a shifting light installation created to represent Los Angeles’s Mulholland Drive.
