Technosonics on tour!


Live Arts, downtown Charlottesville
8pm, Friday, November 14, 2009
directions: 123 E Water St, Charlottesville, VA 22902-5218

The Virginia Center for Computer Music and the Program in Composition and Computer Technologies at U.Va. present an evening of experimental music, sound art and multimedia. A celebration of 10 years of the TECHNOSONICS Festival, the theme of BUILDING finds articulation and resonance in works by a diverse group of national and international composers. From sound collage formed of radio broadcasts collected round the world, to self-organizing music for networked laptopistes, to no-holds-barred musical robotics, to the life in a year of Jefferson's Rotunda. A prismatic take on BUILDING ranges from architectural to ideological space, from human communities to invented technological agents. Featured composers include Iannis Xenakis, Stephen Vitiello, Krzysztof Wolek, EMMI, and Steven Kemper -- as well as composers-in-residence Judith Shatin, Matthew Burtner and Ted Coffey.

Performances: Charlottesville, Live Arts, November 13, 8:00 PM; Richmond, MUSE, November 14, 7:00 PM; D.C., The Mead Theatre, November 15, 7:00 PM.
