Wesleyan's new Real-Time Autoschediasms for Electroacoustic Creative Orchestra, directed by Assistant Professor of Music Tyshawn Sorey, and the Toneburst Laptop and Electronic Arts Ensemble under the direction of Associate Professor and Chair of the Music Department Paula Matthusen, join forces to premiere a series of live electroacoustic pieces involving EarthSounds—the ceramic percussion instruments constructed by Ragnar Naess for Tan Dun, which are now owned by Wesleyan University. The performance will feature the world premiere of new works written for this combination by Mr. Sorey, John Spencer Camp Professor of Music Neely Bruce, and ensemble members.
