Technosonics XIV: Motion

Last October a special collaboration between the McIntire Department of Music, the Virginia Center for Computer Music and the University of Virginia Dance Program took audiences to the fascinating artistic intersection where music meets movement. Technosonics XIV: Motion, a special Arts Enhancement Event supported by the Office of the Provost and the Vice Provost for the Arts, was highlighted by a pair of sold out events that featured works composed by the U.Va. Composition and Computer Technologies (CCT) faculty, and choreographed by University and guest dancers. Dance faculty, Kim Brooks Mata, Katie Baer Schetlick and Dinah Gray collaborated, with Music faculty, Ted Coffey, Judith Shatin and Matthew Burtner, and with composition graduate students. Featured guests included the Da Capo Chamber Players, Chris Chafe, Paul Matteson, Katharine Birdsall and The Movement Party. The events also gave Dance students the opportunity to work and perform with noted choreographers and dance professionals from the Charlottesville and New York communities.
