We are excited to announce Switch On!, an academic year-long collaboration between composition students from the University of Chicago, the University of Chicago Integrated Media Experimental Studio (CHIME), and the [Switch~ Ensemble], a distinguished performing ensemble consisting of both instrumentalists and sound technicians specializing in electroacoustic music. The focus of the collaboration will be a pairing of composition students with sound technicians from [Switch~], creating and realizing new compositions that incorporate electronics and multimedia. The residency takes place in spring of 2017, when [Switch~] will be in residency at the University for a week of workshops, rehearsals, TWO performances around Chi-town, and recordings of student works. Stay tuned and mark your calendars, May 09–15!
