Engineered Expression: Digital Instruments in Performance
Saturday, May 08, 2021 at 1:00pm to 4:00pmVirtual Event
Creating and performing with new digital and electronic instruments has always been an important part of electronic and computer music. This concert and workshop features musicians for whom this is a central part of their practice. Whether it takes the form of a physical interface, motion sensor, or software system, these new instruments are shaped by the artistic and aesthetic goals of the performer. The concert on Friday, May 7 presents performances by five musicians, and a 3-hour workshop on Saturday, May 8, features conversations with the performers and in-depth explorations of their instruments. This event is presented in association with Course 21M.370 Digital Instrument Design and supported by the MIT Center for Art, Science & Technology Cross Disciplinary Class Development Fund. Free and open to the public.
