BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- The Indiana University Jacobs School of Music announced today that Todd Rundgren's Halloween recital, "Cluster: the Birth of the T-Chord," will be video-streamed live Oct. 31 at 8 p.m. from Auer Hall. The stream may be accessed through IU Music Live! at

Rundgren's presentation will focus on the development of his harmonic sensibility, with performed examples during this autobiographical concert.

The event is free and open to the public, with general admission and no tickets required. Seating is limited.

The performance follows Rundgren's free public lecture titled "Longhair: Todd Rundgren on the Beatles Effect" Oct. 28 at 7 p.m. in Ballantine Hall 013.

The rocker-producer known for his songs "Hello, It's Me," "Bang the Drum All Day" and "I Saw the Light," among others, was selected as the Class of 1963 Wells Scholars Professor at Indiana University Bloomington for this fall.

Rundgren, the ninth instructor in the Wells Scholars Program, is teaching the middle two weeks of a four-week, one-credit-hour honors seminar designed for 22 Wells Scholars and Hutton Honors students. The class commenced in late October and finishes in mid-November. Co-teaching the class is Jacobs Professor Glenn Gass -- whose relationship with Rundgren helped make the professorship possible -- and IU Distinguished Professor of Sociology Bernice Pescosolido, who was instrumental in helping to plan the course.
