Feb 4 – 11:30 AM; ATLAS 311 (The Brakhage Center)

In this largely hands-on session, we explored theories and techniques of aleatory (“random”) composition that Ed Rivers uses in teaching poetry-writing, poetic analysis, and digital music composing and at how he tries to combine these three endeavors in courses that he teaches. We looked at aleatory composition across various art forms and, in very short workshop interludes, tried to experience directly its possibilities for stimulating creativity and unleashing new voices and visions.
