A weekend of new electronic music and ideas comes to JHU. New Forms/New Paths is a weekend-long event sponsored by the JHU DMC, which focuses on new directions and ideas at the cutting edge of electronic music. It will feature a diverse group of artists and researchers ranging across age, race, and gender. Rather than focusing only on tools and technological concepts, New Forms/New Paths also considers personal history, identity, and global economic and political changes as the combined materials of contemporary musical innovation.
