Event Description

The Eastman Computer Music Class (ECMC) will sponsor a concert featuring two fascinating works by special guest composer, Philippe Leroux.  The ECMC's resident switch~ensemble, which specializes in the performance of chamber works that incorporate live electronic processing, will perform Leroux's celebrated Voi(rex), and also will perform a recent sextet by ECMC staff member Christopher Chandler. Additionally, Mr. Leroux will be at the mixing console to perform spatialization of his acousmatic composition Objets trouvés...posés.

Information on the other works on the program will be available soon at the ECMC website.

On Thursday November 21 Mr. Leroux will give a symposium presentation to Eastman composers that is open to the public.
