Come to our very first annual Concert and Reception! This event will be held in the Garage (Tech Square) at 7pm on November 2nd, 2016; and admission is free. A reception after the concert will be the opportunity for you to listen to the DJ set of Nikhil Bhanu and discuss with Music Tech students as you eat a delicious dinner.
Women in Music Tech is the first student organization of the department, created to encourage women to enter the world of Music Tech and promote the work o f women in the field. The concert will feature OFFAL, the female international laptop orchestra with their piece Union. They will create the soundscape from their studios, scattered around the globe (all of this is live!), and one of them will be integrating all of their musics on stage. Another piece that will show you what Music Technology is about is Do the Buzzer Shake, with Anna Xambo, where members of the audience will be creating music with their smartphones. The Women’s Choir and Nothing but Treble willl also perform this night, and we will be bringing technology to add a twist to their songs.
We would like to warmly thank the membership club Sandbox ATL that offered for The Garage to be our venue, we are really thrilled to perform in such an interesting site of gathering. We are also extremely grateful to the School of Music, the College of Design, the ADVANCE Program, and the Women’s resource center who supported us greatly and made this wonderful event evolve from idea to reality. We also thank our collaborators Georgia Tech Center for the Arts and Institute Diversity.
