No discussion of new media forms can be complete without addressing the
tendency for individual disciplines to collide, overlap and recombine within
emergent media practices. This evening’s conversation featuring composer,
David Dunn and media-sound artist, Paul DeMarinis traverses a wide terrain,
where sculpture, performance, music composition, linguistics, ecology,
complexity science and art history provide touch-points for expanding the
concept and context for twenty-first century art-making.
March. 24, Thurs. 8PM, College of Music Recital Hall

Paul DeMarinis: Associate Professor of Art at Stanford University, is an acclaimed
electronic media artist and among the first innovators to use computers in performance -
