4th Annual Creative Music Festival and Symposium at Guelph

The University of Guelph Music Students' Association, Music Department and School of Fine Art and Music are holding the 4th Annual Creative Music Festival and Symposium Tuesday, February 9th - Thursday, February 11th, 2010. Join us for student performances, presentations, open classes, rehearsals, discussions, a performance by Dr. Ellen Waterman and Dr. James Harley's duo "Spin" for computer and flutes, and a keynote talk on "Queering Genre: Michael Jackson's Undoing of Pop Music Convention" by Dr. Susan Fast (McMaster). For further information and schedule, see the Music Students' Association website for information and details on proposal requirements.

So one of the things that improvisation has come to mean in the context of highly technological performance is that improvisation is the last claim to the legitimate presence of a human in the performance of music.
