Electroacoustic Improv Ensemble
John Ferguson, Instructor
The Electroacoustic Improv Ensemble is an ensemble devoted to free improvisation with new media. Experimental approaches to sound and focused listening techniques are explored with acoustic instruments, live electronics, real-time video, together with networked improvisation, and more.
Students gain an understanding of live performance techniques using interactive music technology. In addition to onstage performance experience, listening and improvisation exercises will lead to the development of personalized approaches (including software/hardware systems) optimized for the students’ modes of expression. In addition, students will gain an understanding of the history and context of musical improvisation using technology, including repertoire and critical studies.
