CALARTS CONCERTS A SCREAM COMPOSERS TO SOUND OUT CREDIT CARD STRIPES, IMAGES FROM SATELLITES.

Byline: Daily News

VALENCIA - The California Institute of the Arts School of Music will host the SCREAM 2000 concert, with a range of new music by composers and CalArts faculty, on Friday at the Roy O. Disney Music Hall on campus.

This year's SCREAM - Southern California Resource for Electro-Acoustic Music - will feature new music with real-time and prerecorded electronics by composers David Bradfield, Tom Flaherty, Rodney Oakes, Bernardo Feldman, and CalArts faculty members Barry Schrader and Mark Trayle.

Performances will range from Bradfield's ``Earth's Vital Signs,'' with sounds generated from processed satellite images, to Trayle's ``Capital Magnetic,'' which explores the musical possibilities of the credit card by treating the data encoded on the cards' magnetic stripes as a kind of musical DNA.

The program will also feature a film, ``Paris is a Woman,'' by CalArts School of Film and Video alumna Janeann Dill.

The SCREAM concert series was initiated by Schrader, a member of the composition faculty of the School of Music and founder of SEAMUS, the Society for Electro-Acoustic Music in the United States.

Schrader's compositions for tape, dance, film, video, multimedia, live/electro-acoustic combinations and real-time computer performances have been presented throughout the world.

Tonight, the music school will present the fourth concert in its Chamber Music Wednesday series at 8 p.m. in the Disney hall. ``From the French to the Brahms Clarinet Quintet'' will be performed.

The chamber music program is a presentation of the CalArts faculty and advanced student musicians and features members of the New Century Players. Tonight's performance will cross the centuries and will include traditional and experimental music.

Both concerts are free and open to the public. CalArts is at 24700 McBean Parkway, Valencia.
