Transcending the Acoustic Space
June 4, 2011 | 3pm–6pm | Meyer Hall
In recording classical and jazz music, one strives to create “realism,” but—in reality—the techniques that are used to achieve this are often anything but ‘direct to stereo.’ In this presentation Bowles will present a variety of recordings done for commercial release in natural and studio acoustics, using similar mic arrays, yet requiring different mixing and processing in order to sound “real.” Recording producer and engineer Bowles formed Swineshead Productions, LLC in 1995 as a classical recording production company, which specializes in high-resolution surround-sound recording.

The Coming Revolution of Radical High-Tech Musical Instruments
June 18, 2011 | 2pm–4pm | Meyer Hall
Most expressive solo musical instruments—violin, cello, clarinet, sax, trumpet and more—are slowly becoming extinct because they are too difficult to learn and can’t play more than one note at a time. And though software synthesis can produce the sounds of these instruments, playing them from a standard keyboard removes all the subtle solo expression, making them sound static and lifeless. This is about to change with the arrival of radical new high-tech musical instruments that promise to capture a virtuoso’s subtle finger gestures as well as traditional instruments, but without their mechanical-age limitations. Join Roger Linn to learn about and see video of these revolutionary new instruments, as well as to see him demonstrate his forthcoming LinnStrument, a video of which has been viewed a quarter million times on YouTube.
