Reembodied Sound: A Symposium and Festival of Transducer-based Music and Sonic Art
Reembodied Sound is an interdisciplinary symposium and festival, focusing on current and emerging practices in music and sonic art involving the use of transducers or surface speakers. Taking place at the historic Computer Music Center at Columbia University (formerly the Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center), this three day event features artists, researchers, scholars, and engineers from across the globe to investigate issues of aesthetics, ethnography, technical design, compositional techniques, history, gender representation, and pedagogy. The symposium is designed for participants and attendees to share practical information, explore new tools and new possibilities, and to lay a foundation for scholarly discourse and technological investigation through a series of presentations, panel discussions, workshops, performances, and sound art installations.
