    Yellow Barn, an international center for chamber music, encourages discovery in the studio, classroom, and concert hall; explores the craft of musical interpretation; and illuminates our world through the unique experience of music.

    Located in the fertile learning ground of Southeastern Vermont, Yellow Barn’s innovative approach to life-long education for musicians and audiences, commitment to quality and a unified aesthetic, and programs that focus listeners in new ways set it apart from any other music center in this country. At Yellow Barn we are invited to listen differently and revel in the pure joy of music-making; as one participant said, “In this world, the impossible becomes possible and the beautiful becomes sublime!”

    Through its annual summer educational programs, and its ongoing series of Artist Residencies, outreach workshops and presentations, and collaborative performances, each year Yellow Barn welcomes over 100 musicians from all over the world to Vermont, and reaches more than 4,000 audience members from the local community and across the nation.

    In 1969, cellist David Wells and pianist Janet Wells founded Yellow Barn as an informal summer retreat for David’s students at the Manhattan School of Music. The Wellses’ neighbors embraced this vibrant addition to their community, which was named by a participant for the color of the Wellses’ farm house, cooking meals for the musicians and organizing concerts for the town. Over the ensuing decades, Yellow Barn has evolved into one of the finest chamber music training and performance centers in the world, renowned for its unique philosophy and commitment to excellence.

    At NEWMUSICUSA we see ourselves first and foremost as advocates. Our mission is to support and promote new music created in the United States. We do that in many ways, fostering connections, deepening knowledge, encouraging appreciation, and providing financial support. In recognition of the possibility and power inherent in the virtual world, we’ve worked to build a strong internet platform to serve our constituency. And that constituency is broad and diverse, from composers and performers to presenters and producers, casual listeners to die-hard fans. We’re truly committed to serving the WHOLE new music community.

    As we go about our work, we make a point of not defining too precisely what we mean by new music. To define is to limit. It’s a spectacular time for musical creativity in part because so much music is being made that isn’t bound by conventional limitations of style or genre or background. The music that we hear being created in such abundance all around us is definition enough. We simply want it to flourish.

    We’re fortunate to have as our legacy the history of previous decades of good works done by the American Music Center and Meet The Composer, the two great organizations that merged to form us in 2011. Their legacies have also brought a small financial endowment that mostly helps support our grantmaking. But we’re not a foundation. We depend decisively each year on the generosity of so many institutions and individuals around the country who are dedicated as we are to the advancement of new music and are devoted to supporting our work.

    New Music USA is part of an international community of advocates for the arts. We’re members of the Performing Arts Alliance, the International Association of Music Information Centres, and the International Society for Contemporary Music. Those partnerships help us represent the interests of our constituents at every level.

    No matter how far ranging our networks, our focus is always solidly on what brings these many constituents and communities together in the first place: the music. When someone uses our platform to listen to something new, recommend a favorite to a friend, or to seek financial assistance or information to support the creation or performance of new work, the whole community is strengthened. Together we’re helping new music reach new ears every day.
    Our Vision

    We envision in the United States a thriving, interconnected new music community that is available to and impactful for a broad constituency of people.
    Our Mission

    New Music USA supports and promotes new music created in the United States. We use the power of virtual networks and people to foster connection, deepen knowledge, encourage appreciation, and provide financial support for a diverse constituency of practitioners and appreciators, both within the United States and beyond.

    Our Values
    We believe in the fundamental importance of creative artists and their work.
    We espouse a broad, inclusive understanding of the term “new music.”
    We uphold and embrace principles of inclusivity and equitable treatment in all of our activity and across our nation’s broadly diverse population in terms of gender, race, age, location, national origin, sexual orientation, religion, socio-economic status and artistic practice.

    From NEWMUSICUSA: “Bang on a Can: Judith Berkson at The Jewish Museum”

    Judith Berkson

    Thursday, July 19, 2018
    at 7:30 PM

    The Jewish Museum
    1109 5th Ave
    New York, NY 10128

    $12—20

    Tickets

    Bang on a Can and the Jewish Museum’s 2018-2019 concert season, pairing innovative music with the Museum’s exhibitions and showcasing leading female performers and composers, begins with a performance by Judith Berkson. An innovative Brooklyn-based composer, pianist, and vocalist, Berkson will perform a dynamic set featuring her unique blend of cantorial music, Hebrew liturgy, and her indie-contemporary composed songs, in conjunction with the Jewish Museum’s exhibition Chaim Soutine: Flesh.

    Mezzo soprano, pianist and composer Judith Berkson uses voice along with analog and digital keyboards to create pieces that cross the boundaries of classical, electronic and experimental music. She has collaborated with Kronos Quartet, City Opera, and has performed works by Chaya Czernowin, Joe Maneri, Rick Burkhardt, Gerard Pape, Julia Werntz, Aleksandra Vrebalov, and Milton Babbitt. She has presented solo works at the Picasso Museum Malaga, Le Poisson Rouge, Roulette and the Concertgebouw. Called “an intriguing young singer-pianist,” her solo album Oylam (ECM Records, 2010), was described as “standards and Schubert and liturgical music, swing and chilly silences. I can’t get enough of it,” by the New York Times. In 2012 she completed The Vienna Rite, a chamber opera based on the friendship between Franz Schubert and Viennese cantor Salomon Sulzer. She is currently working on a recording of pieces for voice and electronics.

    Bang on a Can is dedicated to making music new. Since its first Marathon concert in 1987, Bang on a Can has been creating an international community dedicated to innovative music, wherever it is found. With adventurous programs, it commissions, performs, presents, and records new works, develops new audiences, and educates the musicians of the future. Bang on a Can is building a world in which powerful new musical ideas flow freely across all genres and borders.

    It all started with the first Marathon back in 1987. Three young composers – Michael Gordon, Julia Wolfe and David Lang – noticed that great “art” music was coming from all sorts of interesting new places.

    So they created the concert of their dreams…the come-as-you-are informal sampling of everything innovative, exciting and/or unusual – The Bang on a Can Marathon.

    The ethos and energy of the Marathon proved unstoppable. In the coming years, we addressed the need to commission new work (People’s Commissioning Fund), create and nurture top-notch ensembles (Bang on a Can All-Stars, Asphalt Orchestra), record outstanding performances of pieces both new and under-heard (Cantaloupe Music), inspire the next generation (Summer Festival at MASS MoCA) and produce and present visionary new multi-media works on major stages.

    Recently, we honed a mobile-studio approach to bringing digital music-making to the streets, to the schools, and around the world through an educational recording approach we call Found Sound Nation (FSN). From this venture, we partnered with the State Department to create OneBeat, an international cultural exchange designed to bring creative, socially engaged musicians together from all corners of the globe.

    Today, the very phrase “Bang on a Can” connotes a thorough and fearless vision of music without prejudice, and of contemporary composition as a vital and powerful part of the cultural landscape. Our performances, recordings, broadcasts and videos are heard and seen by millions annually.

    1. The Bang on a Can Marathon, our original and signature program, bringing dozens of composers and hundreds of musicians to the stage for a day-long informal FREE concert in NYC each year.

    2. The annual People’s Commissioning Fund (PCF) Week featuring performances of new works by mid-career composers commissioned for the BoaC All-Stars by hundreds of our supporters.

    3. Our frequent NYC concerts, from BAM to Lincoln Center to smaller, funky venues all over town.

    4. Our Touring schedule, which includes more than 30 from L.A. to Latvia, from Kansas to Kyrgystan.

    5. Regular Commissions, new Record Releases and featured Broadcasts.

    6. Our annual Summer Festival of Music at MASS MoCA, the first national residency program for gifted young composers and performers interested in experimental music.

    7. Our audacious marching project – Asphalt Orchestra – a 12-person, virtuosic mobile ensemble.

    8. A new initiative blending music and technology in public schools and beyond, called Found Sound Nation. Its OneBeat intiative, in partnership with the Dept of State, is an experiment in cultural diplomacy, bringing 60+ musicians from far-flung corners of the globe for a monthlong residency and tour.

    Blackbird Creative Lab is a tuition-free, two-week immersive experience that combines the idyllic seclusion of an artist retreat, the intense camaraderie of a chamber music intensive, and the practical skills of a leadership program. Located on the bucolic campus of the Besant Hill School in the Ojai Valley, of California, 24 performing artists and six composers from around the world gather each summer to develop and realize their own dream projects in addition to exploring and performing works written for The Lab. Chicago-based chamber ensemble Eighth Blackbird are founders of The Lab, and its members serve as the program’s core instrumental faculty.

    Utilizing their signature learn-by-doing approach, Eighth Blackbird coaches and mentors while playing alongside the fellows, who also benefit from the guidance of two composers and one multidisciplinary artist on faculty. Augmenting the faculty is a diverse array of visiting guest artists who give seminars on topics ranging from Carnatic rhythm to public speaking. This unprecedented new program is designed to inspire, empower and equip the next generation of artists to become provocateurs and leaders of their communities.

    This concert will premiere work commissioned for the Lab, as well as performances from this year’s Lab fellows. 2018 composer fellows: Nick Benavides, Oliver Lewin, Gemma Peacocke, Nina Shehkar, Liza Sobel, and Annika Socolofsky.

    The Blackbird Creative Lab is supported in part by the Colburn Foundation, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, and an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.

    LPR X: Carolina Eyck & Theo Bleckmann

    2

    Monday, July 2, 2018
    at 8:00 PM

    Table Seating: $25 advance, $30 day of show
    Standing Room: $20 advance, $25 day of show

    Carolina Eyck creates layers of sound colors with her voice and theremin, playing with loops and effects. The style of the music varies between jazz, contemporary and experimental. While many parts are composed, there is always space for improvisation.

    Theo Bleckmann will perform ‘songs for voice, loops & toys’ [voice, toys, live electronic processing]

    “Vocalist Theo Bleckmann stunned the audience with his ultra clear opening in duet for one… He avoids fulfilling the expectations of the audience with humble elegance and technical brilliance. His intonation leaves no doubt and the diamond-sharp clarity of his three and a half octave-range undertakes great intervallic leaps, throwing in percussive phrases into semi dreamy harmonies. Beyond that he entertains a delicate sense of nuances and humor. Bleckmann’s creative superiority is not afraid of pure beauty nor of overwrought fun and caricatures of kitsch.” — Norbert Krampf, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Germany

    Event Information

    Kishi Bashi is the pseudonym of singer, multi-instrumentalist, and songwriter Kaoru Ishibashi (born November 4, 1975). Born in Seattle, Washington, Ishibashi grew up in Norfolk, Virginia where both of his parents were professors at Old Dominion University. As a 1994 graduate of Matthew Fontaine Maury High School, he went on to study film scoring at Berklee College of Music before becoming a renowned violinist. Ishibashi has recorded and toured internationally as a violinist with diverse artists such as Regina Spektor, Sondre Lerche, and most recently, the Athens, Georgia-based indie rock band, of Montreal. He remains based in Athens.

    Kishi Bashi is also the singer and founding member of the New York electronic rock outfit, Jupiter One. In 2011, he started to record and perform as a solo artist, opening for Sondre Lerche, Alexi Murdoch, and of Montreal. He supported of Montreal on their spring 2012 tour.

    Shortly after Ishibashi debuted his full-length solo album 151a on Indianapolis label Joyful Noise Recordings, NPR All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen listed Kishi Bashi as his favorite new artist of 2012 noting that he created “a radiant, uplifting soundscape” with songs such as “Bright Whites.”

    Kishi Bashi has since been invited to play in major festivals such as SXSW and Austin City Limits and gone on an extensive US tour with supporting acts such as The Last Bison (from his native Hampton Roads, Virginia). In early 2013, Kishi Bashi held a North American tour across the United States and Canada, continuing in EU and UK in spring 2013.

    In 2014 Kishi Bashi released his own line of coffee through Jittery Joe’s called Royal Daark Blend. Each purchase comes with an exclusive song download.

    In 2016 Kishi Bashi announced a new album called Sonderlust live on NPR’s All Songs Considered, which is due out September 16th.

    At NEWMUSICUSA we see ourselves first and foremost as advocates. Our mission is to support and promote new music created in the United States. We do that in many ways, fostering connections, deepening knowledge, encouraging appreciation, and providing financial support. In recognition of the possibility and power inherent in the virtual world, we’ve worked to build a strong internet platform to serve our constituency. And that constituency is broad and diverse, from composers and performers to presenters and producers, casual listeners to die-hard fans. We’re truly committed to serving the WHOLE new music community.

    As we go about our work, we make a point of not defining too precisely what we mean by new music. To define is to limit. It’s a spectacular time for musical creativity in part because so much music is being made that isn’t bound by conventional limitations of style or genre or background. The music that we hear being created in such abundance all around us is definition enough. We simply want it to flourish.

    We’re fortunate to have as our legacy the history of previous decades of good works done by the American Music Center and Meet The Composer, the two great organizations that merged to form us in 2011. Their legacies have also brought a small financial endowment that mostly helps support our grantmaking. But we’re not a foundation. We depend decisively each year on the generosity of so many institutions and individuals around the country who are dedicated as we are to the advancement of new music and are devoted to supporting our work.

    New Music USA is part of an international community of advocates for the arts. We’re members of the Performing Arts Alliance, the International Association of Music Information Centres, and the International Society for Contemporary Music. Those partnerships help us represent the interests of our constituents at every level.

    No matter how far ranging our networks, our focus is always solidly on what brings these many constituents and communities together in the first place: the music. When someone uses our platform to listen to something new, recommend a favorite to a friend, or to seek financial assistance or information to support the creation or performance of new work, the whole community is strengthened. Together we’re helping new music reach new ears every day.
    Our Vision

    We envision in the United States a thriving, interconnected new music community that is available to and impactful for a broad constituency of people.
    Our Mission

    New Music USA supports and promotes new music created in the United States. We use the power of virtual networks and people to foster connection, deepen knowledge, encourage appreciation, and provide financial support for a diverse constituency of practitioners and appreciators, both within the United States and beyond.
    Our Values

    We believe in the fundamental importance of creative artists and their work.
    We espouse a broad, inclusive understanding of the term “new music.”
    We uphold and embrace principles of inclusivity and equitable treatment in all of our activity and across our nation’s broadly diverse population in terms of gender, race, age, location, national origin, sexual orientation, religion, socio-economic status and artistic practice.

    Missouri Theatre
    203 S. 9th St.
    Columbia, MO 65211

    $10—18
    Tickets

    Participants: Mizzou New Music Initiative, Alarm Will Sound, Alex Mincek, Matt Marks [ZT”L], Christopher Stark, Yi Chen, Stefan Freund

    Alarm Will Sound, “One of the most vital and original ensembles on the American music scene” (The New York Times), returns to the Mizzou International Composers Festival for the ninth time. For the opening concert of the 2018 Festival, AWS will perform music by the festival guest composers Chen Yi and Alex Mincek, as well as works by Matt Marks[ZT”L]/Stefan Freund.

    This program includes:

    Chen Yi, Sparkle (arr. by Stefan Freund)
    Alex Mincek, Chimeras*
    Matt Marks [ZT”L] and Stefan Freund, kinda asleep
    King Britt, The Intention (arr. by Christopher Stark)

    • world premiere, commissioned by Alarm Will Sound

    Alarm Will Sound was founded in 2001 by composers and performers who met as students at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, NY. ASCAP recognized their contributions to new music with a 2006 Concert Music Award for “the virtuosity, passion and commitment with which they perform and champion the repertory for the 21st century.”

    The versatility of Alarm Will Sound allows it to take on music from a wide variety of styles. Its repertoire ranges from European to American works, from the arch-modernist to the pop-influenced. The group fosters close relationships with contemporary composers and has commissioned and premiered pieces by Steve Reich, David Lang, Anthony Gatto, Cenk Ergün, Aaron Jay Kernis, Michael Gordon, Augusta Read Thomas, Stefan Freund, Wolfgang Rihm, Payton MacDonald, John Orfe, Gavin Chuck, Dennis DeSantis and Caleb Burhans.

    As the resident ensemble of the Mizzou International Composers Festival in Columbia, Missouri, we premiere and record the works of eight emerging composers each summer. Our Alarm System initiative has expanded the new music repertoire by inviting artists from various backgrounds, such as Mira Calix, Brian Reitzell, Matt Rogers, Medeski, Martin and Wood, to make music with Alarm Will Sound.

    Alarm Will Sound may be heard on ten recordings, including our most recent, Splitting Adams, released by Cantaloupe in April 2017, and the premiere recording of Steve Reich’s Radio Rewrite. Our genre-bending, critically acclaimed Acoustica features live-performance arrangements of music by electronica guru Aphex Twin.

    In 2016, Alarm Will Sound in a co-production with Opera Theatre of St. Louis, presented the world premiere of the staged version of Donnacha Dennehy’s The Hunger at the BAM Next Wave Festival and the Touhill Performing Arts Center.

    In 2013-14, Alarm Will Sound served as artists-in-residence at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, presenting four large ensemble performances at the Met, including two site-specific productions staged in museum galleries, as well as several smaller events in collaboration with the Museum’s educational programs.

    In 2011, at Carnegie Hall, the group presented 1969, a multimedia event that uses music, images, text, and staging to tell the compelling story of great musicians—John Lennon, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Luciano Berio, and Leonard Bernstein—striving for a new music and a new world amidst the turmoil of the late 1960s.

    In 2010, the group developed and performed the Dirty Projectors’ The Getty Address in its new identity as a live performance piece at Lincoln Center, Disney Hall and the Barbican. Music that Dirty Projectors front-man David Longstreth created on a computer by meticulous and complicated sampling, looping and layering is translated and arranged for 23 musicians of both bands.

    Alarm Will Sound has been presented by Carnegie Hall, Brooklyn Academy of Music, Lincoln Center, (le) Poisson Rouge, Miller Theatre, the Kitchen, the Bang on a Can Marathon, Disney Hall, Kimmel Center, Library of Congress, the Walker Arts Center, Cal Performances, Stanford Lively Arts, Duke Performances, and the Warhol Museum. International tours include the Holland Festival, Sacrum Profanum, Moscow’s Art November, St. Petersburg’s Pro Arte Festival, and the Barbican.

    At NEWMUSICUSA we see ourselves first and foremost as advocates. Our mission is to support and promote new music created in the United States. We do that in many ways, fostering connections, deepening knowledge, encouraging appreciation, and providing financial support. In recognition of the possibility and power inherent in the virtual world, we’ve worked to build a strong internet platform to serve our constituency. And that constituency is broad and diverse, from composers and performers to presenters and producers, casual listeners to die-hard fans. We’re truly committed to serving the WHOLE new music community.

    As we go about our work, we make a point of not defining too precisely what we mean by new music. To define is to limit. It’s a spectacular time for musical creativity in part because so much music is being made that isn’t bound by conventional limitations of style or genre or background. The music that we hear being created in such abundance all around us is definition enough. We simply want it to flourish.

    We’re fortunate to have as our legacy the history of previous decades of good works done by the American Music Center and Meet The Composer, the two great organizations that merged to form us in 2011. Their legacies have also brought a small financial endowment that mostly helps support our grantmaking. But we’re not a foundation. We depend decisively each year on the generosity of so many institutions and individuals around the country who are dedicated as we are to the advancement of new music and are devoted to supporting our work.

    New Music USA is part of an international community of advocates for the arts. We’re members of the Performing Arts Alliance, the International Association of Music Information Centres, and the International Society for Contemporary Music. Those partnerships help us represent the interests of our constituents at every level.

    No matter how far ranging our networks, our focus is always solidly on what brings these many constituents and communities together in the first place: the music. When someone uses our platform to listen to something new, recommend a favorite to a friend, or to seek financial assistance or information to support the creation or performance of new work, the whole community is strengthened. Together we’re helping new music reach new ears every day.
    Our Vision

    We envision in the United States a thriving, interconnected new music community that is available to and impactful for a broad constituency of people.
    Our Mission

    New Music USA supports and promotes new music created in the United States. We use the power of virtual networks and people to foster connection, deepen knowledge, encourage appreciation, and provide financial support for a diverse constituency of practitioners and appreciators, both within the United States and beyond.
    Our Values

    We believe in the fundamental importance of creative artists and their work.
    We espouse a broad, inclusive understanding of the term “new music.”
    We uphold and embrace principles of inclusivity and equitable treatment in all of our activity and across our nation’s broadly diverse population in terms of gender, race, age, location, national origin, sexual orientation, religion, socio-economic status and artistic practice.

    Tags: NEWMUSICUSA, The Piezo Electric Effect: Using contact mics to find sonic resonance within objects   

    From NEWMUSICUSA: “The Piezo Electric Effect: Using contact mics to find sonic resonance within objects”

    Building 8a
    Nolan Park
    Governors Island, NY 100004

    Free Event

    Come to this free event to create your own instrument using piezo disks and everyday objects!

    Avant-garde composer John Cage wrote a piece in 1960 titled Cartridge Music. This concept was this: a cartridge from a phonograph pickup is dismembered, the needle replaced with “all manner of unspecified small objects.” Pipe cleaners, matches, feathers and wires were sounded against surfaces, walls, bodies and floors in order to amplify the small sounds of vibration that occurred on contact. Cartridge Music is an example of a type of work produced as part of the Fluxus Movement. Fluxus artists, like Cage, often produced work in the form of “events”, which provided a set of instructions about how the work should be performed, but left much open to circumstance and chance of the moment of enactment.

    Much like the pickups used in Cartridge Music, piezo disks are small components that use the electric properties of crystals to generate signal. In this workshop, we will use piezo disks as contact microphones in order to sonify and amplify hidden resonances within commonplace objects that surround us. Drawing on ideas from Nic Collins’s Handmade Electronic Music: The Art of Hacking Hardware, we will use vibratory materials to create our own DIY instruments, which we will amplify and perform with together in the Harvestworks Governor’s Island house. Attendees will have the chance to try hands on soldering. You should also come with objects that you might use to create amplified signal i.e. metal utensils, bowls, plastics, anything with interesting sonic potential. We will have an assortment of small materials on hand.

    Harvestworks
    New York City, NY

    Harvestworks’ mission is to support artists in the creation and presentation of art works achieved through the use of new and evolving technologies. Harvestworks is a leader in the field, committed to fostering innovative work and developing broad audiences through high-visibility programs. We are dedicated to presenting the highest quality work across the arts and technology spectrum to the public.

    The Harvestworks facility realizes our vision by providing a place to experience the immense creative and cultural potential of new technology in music and the arts. Our Technology, Engineering, Art and Music (T.E.A.M.) lab is at the center of our international electronic arts center and is an important cultural destination for audiences and artists from around the world.

    Founded in 1977 by composers and sound artists, Harvestworks was the first arts organization to offer composers access to state-of-the-art equipment for recording and sound experimentation. We have always been an open and accessible community space, offering networking opportunities in addition to computer-based instruments for composers to create their work, to orchestrate music and film soundtracks, and to investigate the potentialities of new hardware and software. The history of Harvestworks is in many ways a record of the development the artists’ impact on the ways technology can be integrated into the creative process. We are deeply involved, our primary focus is aesthetic; the technology is always a tool, an instrument integrated into the artist’s practice.

    Harvestworks has always brought the work created in our center to the larger public inviting audiences to enjoy the completed work of artists working here. In the last ten years, we have developed a substantial series of presentations, workshops, festivals and symposia that range from informal workshop/demonstrations of works in progress or new tools, to international concerts and conferences.

    Since 2007, we have produced the New York Electronic Art Festival (NYEAF) that has attracted a cumulative audience of 92,000. Our major partners and sponsors for the festival have included NIME (New Interfaces for Musical Expression International Conference), New York University, Eyebeam, Roulette, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, 3LD Art and Technology Center, arts>World Financial Center, The Trust for Governors Island, River to River Festival, Trinity Wall Street, Hells Kitchen Cultural Center, the Museum of the Moving Image and the New York Hall of Science. Through concerts, workshops, lectures, panels and exhibitions, the festivals are a comprehensive look at the most recent artists projects produced in the Harvestworks community. Additional work produced in our production studios has been presented at The Gershwin, Mannes College of Music, Sculpture Center, The Stone, High Zero Festival, The Orpheum LA , Currents Santa Fe, Singapore Arts Festival, the Edinburgh International Festival, The Kitchen, Issue Project Room, Library of Congress, EMPAC and Here Art Center.

    Our Community: Our marketing demographics show that our community ranges from 18 to 54 with slightly more women than men with a majority from NYC. They are in the lower income brackets but may have a college education, are adventurous and avidly interested in their culture.They have technical knowledge to share and they want to be inspired by individuals who are using technology creatively.

    Over 250 artists come to Harvestworks annually because they get individual attention for their projects. Through our day to day contact with artists we have now become aware of an increasing demand to be part of an ongoing, larger network for innovation that will reach a greater public interested in innovative approaches to new music and technology.

    Our Position in the Field: In a recent focus group comprised of interns, former Artists in Residence, students and affiliates of Harvestworks, the participants agreed that Harvestworks is a technologically advanced organization that is supportive and provides a good platform for artists to develop creative ideas. They also felt that it was artist driven, had a strong community, was open, accessible and a good hub for networking.

    Our Upcoming Schedule includes performances by Lea Bertucci, Jane Rigler, Michael Schumacher/Nisi Jacobs, Morton Subtonick, Joan La Barbara, Martha Mooke, Annie Gosfield, Paul D. Miller, Marco Donnarumma, William Hooker and Shelley Hirsch.
