Pathways: Art & Technology
“America’s foremost new-music group” (Alex Ross), the International Contemporary Ensemble, and bespoken, a mentorship program for self-identifying female, non-binary, and trans women artists in classical, contemporary, & jazz music, co-present Pathways: Art & Technology, a free, series of panels & workshops focusing on the intersection of technology & art.
Each session throughout the year features speakers discussing their artistry & practice across four disciplines – moving image, audio engineering, live-sound, & video – and how their work intersects within each area. The series intends to serve as platform for empowerment, breaking down the barriers to using technology in an artist’s practice, especially for women & gender non-conforming artists.
Each year, bespoken provides current fellows with private group workshops led by industry professionals. These workshops are an opportunity for fellows to come together, learn about each others work, and ask question about project creation, career development, and what it means to be a professional in todays music industry.
