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.

How does technology and art come together in performance? How do we begin to work across disciplines? After hearing from each artist about their artistic journey, we will go into two topic-specific breakout rooms - sound and video - spaces for more detailed questions related to each area and getting to know each other better. Please feel free to bring questions related to your own work/projects you are working on!

Presented by bespoken and the International Contemporary Ensemble
