2014 ICMC

Richard Dudas’ participation in the 2014 International Computer Music Conference (ICMC) in Athens, Greece included both a musical work and a scholarly paper. On Sept 17, 2014, percussionist Patti Cudd performed Prelude for Percussion and Computer at the conference’s late night concert venue – the National Bank of Greece’s Old Bourse building.  The following day, Dudas and clarinettist Pete Furniss presented their co-authored paper, “Transcription, Adaptation and Maintenance in Live Electronic Performance with Acoustic Instruments,” at the conference’s afternoon poster session.

Prelude No.1 at the Dialogues Festival in Edinburgh

On April 18, 2014 clarinetist Pete Furniss performed Richard Dudas’ Prelude No. 1 in a new, updated version for clarinet and computer at the 2014 Dialogues Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland. The concert is part of the festival’s Late Lab concert series taking places at the Informatics Forum and also includes performances by Jean-François Laporte and Jess Aslan.
