David RevillEnglish composer and friend of WAC David Revill has been appointed McKnight Visiting Composer by the American Composers Forum in St. Paul, MN. Starting in March, '97, Revill will be, as he puts it, "causing as much trouble as possible across Minnesota", with various projects including Labyrinth, a music-theater project with high schools, St. Vitus' Dance, a Minnesota Percussion All-Stars event designed for outdoor venues, working with film and dance, teaching an experimental writing course, performing in coffee bars, and so forth. Revill adds, "I hope that sometimes, while nobody's looking, I can also sneak over the border into Wisconsin."
