TIMARA Professors Tom Lopez and Peter Swendsen will be attending the Third Practice Electroacoustic Music Festival November 2-3, 2012 at the University of Richmond. Concerts will be held on Friday at 2:30pm and 7:30pm, and Saturday at 11:00am, 2:30pm, and 7:30pm, at the Modlin Center for the Arts. No tickets are required, and all events are free and open to the public. Now in its twelfth year, the festival presents works for instruments and computer, video, and stereo and multi-channel works for fixed media. This year the festival will present pieces that explore voice and text, the boundary between experimental and popular musical practices, and a range of modes of improvisation with technology. In addition to performances of Lopez’s and Swendsen’s work, Oberlin alum ensemble Eighth Blackbird will be performing as well. – MC
