Yarn/Wire Institute at Stony Brook University
June 20-30, 2017
The Yarn/Wire Institute at Stony Brook University is a place for practitioners of modern music to hone their skills and collaborate with dedicated artists from across the globe. Now in its second year, the ten-day institute for pianists, percussionists, and composers focuses on the the music of today in its vast diversity of sound and style.
Participants work closely with Yarn/Wire and faculty members Aaron Einbond and Margaret Schedel on the development and performance of new work, interpretation of existing work, and take part in a variety of masterclasses, workshops, and presentations. Topics covered include collaborating with composers/performers, working with electronics, project development, commissioning, exploring extended techniques, improvisation, entrepreneurship, and responding to the evolving cultural landscape with a personal voice and optimistic approach.
