The e-Frontier: Music, Multimedia, Education, and Audiences in the Digital World
- Geared to conductors and composers, this dynamic workshop covers new technologies in education and performance that play an increasingly important role in our field, including: electroacoustic band pieces; conductors working with click tracks, prerecorded audio, and live electronics; interactive rehearsal and performance spaces via Skype; creative multimedia; and the use of social networks by composers, publishers, band directors and students, to build excitement and attendance.
