Convergence Research with Students of Electronic Composition
Wednesday, January 26, 2022
6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Inspired by the Molly Zuckerman-Hartung: Comic Relief exhibition, the students from Dr. Chapman Welch’s Electronic Composition (MUSI 4122) course at the Moores School of Music created new work for this one-night-only event.
In the class, students were introduced to electronic music history and theory, as well as a variety of recording techniques. Building on this knowledge, they composed their fixed media works using pre-recorded sounds manipulated by custom-built, software samplers.
Co-presented by the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts and Blaffer Art Museum, Convergence Research is a new, ongoing platform for interdisciplinary research, experimentation, improvisation and performance. University of Houston students and faculty from across the disciplines–and beyond the arts–meet to discuss and present projects in a state of becoming. All are welcome to attend, observe and join the conversation.
