Entire Conference Program
Concerts are archived in the FOR MEMBERS menu.
The venues for the Conference (hosted by the SEAMUS Board) were the DiMenna Center for Classical Music, New York University Bobst Library’s Avery Fisher Center, and New York University’s Silver Center. The music presented included a diverse mix of fixed media, mixed media, acousmatic, new instruments, diverse channel and spatialization formats, installations, and experimental electroacoustic music involving modified traditional instruments. Extended Conference events, in line with the 2021 Conference spearheaded by Past President Ted Coffey, “Rhizome” events, are happening though March and April.
Collaborators included guest choreographer and dancer Ron’Dale Simpson. Instrumental performers involved in preparing and presenting these works (many of which were also performed by the composers themselves, on laptops and on traditional or non-traditionally modified acoustic instruments) are both from NYC and from throughout the US. They included the TAK Ensemble, The Rhythm Method, cellists Madeleine Shapiro and Meaghan Burke, violinist Marina Kifferstein, Percussionists Sae Hashimoto and Ellery Trafford, pianist Shiau-uen Ding, flutist Laura Cocks, and taragato player Esther Lamneck, and clarinettist Ben Fingland. Out of town guests will include Betsy Lantz and Kyle Hutchins, Adrianne Munden Dixon, Greg Byrne, and many, many more.
