The University of Colorado Boulder’s ATLAS Institute and College of Music is hosting a private, mid-week gathering to celebrate a special group of distinguished summer visitors to campus. Free and open to the public.
For the past several weeks, ATLAS Institute and the College of Music have enjoyed the company of Miller S. Puckette, a pioneer in the fields of graphical programming and computer music, who has been teaching a course in Computer Music and Pure Data as part of CU-Boulder’s Faculty-In-Residence Summer Term program. In addition to allowing a diverse group of graduate and undergraduate students learn and create alongside an extraordinary innovator, CU–Boulder faculty, students and technicians have benefitted from their interactions with Puckette.
In his final week of residency, Aug. 3–7, Puckette brings together some of his closest collaborators for a series of classes, conversations and performances detailed here. For ATLAS Summer Experimental Music Week, Puckette is joined by French composer Philippe Manoury, soprano Juliana Snapper, keyboardist and music synthesis software developer Eric Lindemann, and several others, who will come together for a closing performance on Friday, Aug. 7 that you won’t want to miss.
On August 5, 5:30-7:30 pm, the ATLAS Institute is pleased to join the College of Music in hosting a casual reception and happy hour in the ATLAS Black Box Experimental Studio. This private invitation-only event is an opportunity for our communities to celebrate our guests, while exploring the opportunities for future projects that blend science, technology, art and music to expand the possibilities of creative expression. The evening will include a few words from the College of Music’s Dean Robert Shay and ATLAS Director Mark D Gross. We hope you’ll join us.
If you plan to attend, RSVP by August 3.
