2020 Ethics Bowl Case #12 Accompanying Audio
The Case entitled Our Time: Me Too (Case #12) is about ethics issues involved in composing music. Essential and integral to Case #12 is the "voice" and sound of the composition itself. For this reason, we have included this audio recording of Our Time: Me Too from July, 2019. The performance, by composer, carillonist and case author Pamela Ruiter-Feenstra, took place at U-M's Lurie Tower carillon on North Campus, located near the School of Engineering.
Since its first performance, carillonists worldwide have requested the score for Our Time: Me Too. Within a few months after its premiere, the piece was performed on three continents. On April 16, 2019, the carillon version of Our Time: Me Too was featured in a concert recognizing Michigan State University (MSU) gymnast survivors. The piece was exhibited in the MSU Museum in a yearlong (2019–2020) exhibition entitled, “Finding Our Voice: Sister Survivors Speak.”
University of Michigan Band Director Professor Dr. Courtney Snyder commissioned an arrangement of Our Time: Me Too for band and global percussion. This version of Our Time: Me Too will be premiered in Hill Auditorium on March 17, 2020 at 8PM.
