The New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival (NYCEMF) will showcase electroacoustic music and video art from around the world in New York City through this multi-day festival, with several events each day. The festival will include presentations of electroacoustic music recorded alone in up to eight channels, works involving live electronics, works combining musical instruments or voices with recorded or live electronics, video and multimedia works, and audio and video installations.
More than 200 composers from around the world will be presented, representing the full international range of electroacoustic music, including works by Monty Adkins (UK), Andreas Bergsland (Norway), Joao Pedro Oliveira (Portugal), Maurice Wright (USA), Takayuki Rai (Japan/Germany), Kenneth Gaburo (USA), Clarence Barlow (India/USA), George Brunner (USA), Paul Koonce (USA) and James Dashow (USA/Italy).
Performers include Francesco Prode, pianist (Italy), Mari Kimura, violinist (Japan/USA), Madeleine Shapiro, cellist (USA) and Esther Lamneck, clarinetist (USA).
The festival is designed to expose audiences to current trends in electroacoustic music, to support the innovative nature of the field and to celebrate its music. With participants coming from all over the world, the festival also serves to provide a time and place for composers, performers and engineers to gather, exchange ideas and share their works.
