DXARTS Spring Concert to be held April 25, 7:30 p.m., Meany Hall, UW

Southern Exchange:  An evening of 3D Digital Music by Argentine composers Oscar Pablo Di Liscia, Fernando Lopez-Lezcano and Juan Pampin.

 

In the the early 1990s the Rockefeller Foundation sponsored a exchange program between two important west-coast computer centers: the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA) at Stanford University, the Center for Research in Computing and the Arts (CRCA) at UCSD, and the Laboratorio de Investigación y Producción Musical (LIPM) of the city of Buenos Aires, directed at that time by electronic music pioneer Francisco Kröpfl. During this exchange program, Argentine composers affiliated with LIPM had the opportunity to be in residency at these centers for several months, learning computer music and composing new works. The program completely transformed the landscape of electronic music in Argentina and many of the composers that took part of it became the next generation of experts in the field. Two decades later, three of the composers that participated of this exchange gather at the UW to present their latest works, distant echoes of those first steps into the world of computer music.
