Technosonics ‘21

The University of Virginia’s computer music festival TECHNOSONICS returns November 18-20 for three mind & ear expanding days of digital sound art composition. This year’s featured guest, Natasha Barrett (Norway/UK), will present a Colloquium at 3:30pm on Friday, November 19. Barrett’s work “Sansing i Strandsona” was one of the winning compositions from the 2021 Coastal Futures International Ecoacoustic Music Competition. This piece, along with other prize-winning works by Daniel Blinkhorn (Australia), Elsa Jaeyoung Park (Korea) and Christopher Jette (California) will be performed on Thursday November 18 at 8pm in Old Cabell Hall and streamed live to the world. This Thursday evening concert will also feature music by UVA composers Matthew Burtner and Judith Shatin.

On Friday night, November 19 at 8pm, downtown at the Bridge PAI get into the groove with MICE (Mobile Interactive Computer Ensemble), and experience new works from the Composition and Computer Technologies (CCT) doctors of noise, Varun Kishore, Becky Brown, Heather Mease and Alex Christie. 

Finally, on Saturday November 20 at 3:30pm, outside The Bridge PAI, UVA’s New Music Ensemble directed by I-Jen Fang will close out the festival. The NME program will include three world premieres composed by the ensemble members, Bob DuCharme and Becky Brown. You will also experience pieces by Nomi Epstein, M.
