College of Music professor Joseph Klein's latest CD represents 30 years of work

Improbable Encounters CD coverImprobable Encounters, the new CD/DVD from Joseph Klein, composition studies chair and professor, is a reflection of 30 years of work and a unique array of influences.

The recording features several solo works from faculty colleagues and the UNT Nova Ensemble and pieces with theatrical elements, intermedia and 5.1 computer music.

Klein's interests and influences are as diverse as fractal geometry and literature.

"I have always been fascinated by the convergence of science, math and music -- patterns, cycles, processes," he says. "Most of the works I have composed in the past 20 years have been inspired in some way by the written word, whether it is a setting of text to music, or instrumental music that is based abstractly on some literary work."
