Elena DubinetsIn this presentation, SCP’s Artistic Advisor Dr. Elena Dubinets explores the cross-pollination between art music and new technologies as they meet in the interdependent realm of music creation and concert presenting. The area of music creation and the ways in which composers have internalized and incorporated technological advances into their compositional languages will be discussed as it previews the Seattle Chamber Players festival, “Icebreaker: Open Source.” To illustrate the festival’s driving concept, members of the Seattle Chamber Players will perform several compositions created in the XXI century and embedded with new and innovative technologies.
