I/O New Music is open to all instrumentalists, composers, conductors, and musicians interested in making immersive and adventurous music. This year, in place of our annual January festival, we will explore ways to creatively respond to the restrictions of musical life during the COVID pandemic. I/O programs will focus on spatial works, virtual collaborations, outdoor performance, and other projects that allow us to make music together safely and explore the musical, acoustic, and social implications of this new way of making music. Participants will be encouraged to take part in developing creative projects that respond directly to the current situation, exploring new temporalities and musical ecologies, and transforming limitations into new modes of performance and expression.
The group, founded in 2008, is directed by Matthew Gold.
