Guitarist Bill Purse will be getting together with colleagues from Duquesne University and various pieces of musical technology at a release party Tuesday for his new CD, "Sonic Art."

"I guess you could call it textural jazz," says Purse, chairman of the music-technology program at Duquesne. "Plus, I love film music, and I think it is cinematic."

He composed 13 of the 14 pieces on the release, some being from his suite "Kennywood's Open," which features sounds from the amusement park. The album is built around the sounds of electronic instruments such as the theremin, which produces the howl so often connected with '50s science-fiction films.

Like the album, the CD release party will feature members of the school's music faculty. Trumpeter Sean Jones, sax player Mike Tomaro, guitarist Tom Kikta and trombonist Edward Kocher, dean of the music school, will be some of the sidemen.

Music begins at 7 p.m. at the Red Ring, 1015 Forbes Ave., on the Uptown campus. Admission is free. Details: 412-396-3550.
