This workshop will deal with practical issues relating to the performance of works with live electronics. Live electronics involve the real-time transformation of instrumental sound during a performance using an interactive computer system.  Issues to be dealt with include an introduction to the technology of live electronics, software interfaces, modernization of repertoire, touring with technology and bridging the gap between acoustic instruments and electronics. The workshop will also include a general meeting of Axis 6 (Expanded Musical Practice).


Registration is on a first-come first-served basis (30-35 seats):
