The Center of New Music and Audio Technologies‘ website just went public in a “soft” release. That means there is still a lot still under construction, but it’s up again!
In conjunction with the website’s launch, the Regent’s Lecturer and Artist in Residence, Canadian electroacoustic musician Jean-François LaPorte played a solo concert on Friday, March 17th. Laporte’s performance showcased his use of sculptural instruments and experimental control mechanisms.
Watch the performance and hear Laporte’s cool soundscapes yourself at this link!
