CNMAT and the Berkeley Symphony Orchestra present:

An evening with John Chowning and David Wessel

Can the seemingly disparate worlds of violins and synthesizers get along? Join David Wessel, Director of the UC Berkeley Center for New Music and
Audio Technologies (CNMAT), in a discussion with John Chowning, Stanford Professor Emeritus and this season's Berkeley Symphony composer-in-residence. Chowning, inventor of the technology behind Yamaha's most successful line of music synthesizers, will discuss the history and future of the art of electronic music. Chowning's Voices for soprano and electronics will receive its U.S. premiere at a Berkeley Symphony performance on March 29 in Zellerbach Hall. This free event promises insights both for fans of electronica interested in seeing technology reimagined for the concert hall, and for classical music devotees curious about the "serious" side of blips and bleeps.
