Making it Less Scary: Rehearsing and Performing Electroacoustic Pieces with Your Group

Clinic Synopsis:

Want to program an electroacoustic piece with your ensemble, but not sure where to begin? This clinic will demonstrate what varying levels of technology look like from the performer and ensemble leader’s standpoint using existing pieces. We’ll also discuss basic rehearsal and performance considerations, and you’ll leave with resources to find works within your comfort level. Selections range in difficulty from grade 1–4, from just pressing play to setting up multiple synchronized pieces of gear.

Justin Hubbard - Biographical Information

Justin is currently Assistant Professor of Music and Director of Bands at Fort Lewis College. He leads the Fort Lewis College Symphonic Band and teaches the saxophone and clarinet studios, recording, and music education courses. He also works as a freelance audio engineer, producer, and woodwind specialist. Between all his various roles, he is frequently in demand throughout the Southwest as a clinician, performer, and audio guru. Justin’s love for audio and recording technology started with technical theater work in high school, but really took hold during his graduate studies. His doctoral project, “So, You Want to Do a Piece with Electronics? A Layperson’s Guide to Works for Wind Band and Electronics,” includes a detailed how-to guide on how to perform existing works in the medium along with an annotated list of works that were available as of spring 2020. Justin is interested in human perception and understanding of music, instruments, and their relationships to performance (cognitive/perceptual neuroscience and social science)—especially regarding electroacoustics and digital musical instruments. He loves collaborating on and developing new multimedia and electroacoustic works, especially those that explore innovative combinations of acoustic and electronic instruments. In addition to his DMA in Conducting from ASU, he holds a Master of Music in Wind Band Conducting from the University of Nevada, Reno and a Bachelor of Music Education from Central Michigan University.
