[1] Electroacoustic Music Competition
To identify innovative works by emerging and accomplished electroacoustic composers and by performing and video artists, the ECMC concluded an international electroacoustic music competition last year. Imaginative musical and multimedia works by the competition winners, including

are included in our anniversary season concerts. We will also perform honorable mention works.

[2] Visiting Guest Artists

For its 25th anniversary celebration, the ECMC is honored to host a distinguished group of internationally known composers, researchers, and performers. Each guest has made significant contributions to the development of creative, expressive, technical, and esthetic resources available today to composers, performers, and scholars of computer and electroacoustic music. By their contributions, each has also enriched the experiences of audiences for the growing and remarkably varied repertoire of electroacoustic music and multimedia production.

As we celebrate the history of the ECMC as well as the accomplishments of musicians and former students who have used ECMC resources over the years, it is our privilege to personally acknowledge the achievements of these internationally recognized artists and researchers who have given generously of their talents, insights, and energies to the field.

ECMC Alumni

We are proud of the many former staff members and students pursuing active careers as composers, as performers (some listed above), teachers, studio directors, software developers, writers, and contributing in various other capacities to music.

If money grew on trees, we would invite all of our alumni friends, or at least several dozen, to return for our celebration. Lacking such resources, we have invited a representative group of accomplished composers and performers for performances of one of their works.

Our concert series will include works from ECMC alumni composers
