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. Become aware of emerging ideas in contemporary electronic music regarding style, aesthetics, politics, and personal growth.
