The Technology in Music and Related Arts  (TIMARA) Program studios, home of the Sonic Arts Workshop, have been refurbished and are now open!

Dedicated high school students, aged 15 years and older, have an opportunity to focus on the composition of electroacoustic music and expand their technical and creative resources during the 7-day Sonic Arts Workshop. Participants are chosen through a competitive selection process. The workshop is not open to students who’ve graduated from high school.

Topics will include digital audio editing and manipulation, real-time computer music performance techniques, and discussion of pieces from the field's growing repertoire. The program will cover issues of interest to young composers heading toward conservatory studies and those generally interested in experimenting with electroacoustic music and its intersections with other disciplines.

Participants will work with codirectors Tom Lopez and Peter V. Swendsen, faculty in the conservatory’s TIMARA Program.
