The UP College of Music Composition Students in collaboration with the University of British Columbia School of Music programmers and musicians will showcase their joint computer music compositions in a concert featuring computers, dance sensors, and light activations on February 27, 2020, Thursday, 7:00 in the evening at the Abelardo Hall Auditorium.
The UBC School of Music digital performance ensemble (Sonic UBC Laptop Sounds and Sensors – SUBCLASS) have been interacting online with the UP Diliman students weeks before they arrive on February 17, 2020. They will be staying for two weeks in the campus and will spend time with the UP Composition majors to create and develop works inspired by the Asian elements of Fire, Water, Wind, and Earth.
Dr. Keith Hamel, UBC Professor, has authored the software for the interactive sound and sensors while Dr. Bob Pritchard masterminded the software’s applications and performances. On the other hand, guest lecturer, Tad Ermitaño trained the UP students on pure data graphic programming while Dr. Maria Christine Muyco organized activities around the students’ compositions. The international collaborative project is taking shape with the leadership of Dean LaVerne de la Peña and Prof. Josefino “Chino” Toledo.
The concert is free to the public.
