SEAMUS 2011 – Number Stations

I am finishing up a great weekend in Miami at SEAMUS 2011! For those who haven’t heard of it, SEAMUS (pronounced like the name, “shay-mus”) is the Society of Electro-Acoustic Music in the United States. This year’s conference was held at University of Miami’s Frost School of Music.

I was there to perform Paul Leary’s Number Stations for alto sax and computer playback, which I commissioned and premiered in 2010. Paul and I had a great time presenting his piece (8:30am sound check shown above, picture of us at the conference below) on the 7th of 14 concerts. The conference was packed full of so much music that I will post separately to talk about everything else.

Check out my previous interview with Paul and the recording we made of Number Stations last year:
