BEAMS (Brandeis Electro-Acoustic Music Studio) Electronic Music Marathon

Electronic music and mixed/multi-media works are too often compromised by the quality of the technology through which they are experienced. But the 2011 “BEAMS Electronic Music Marathon” features a state of the art sound system installed in the intimate and acoustically excellent Slosberg Recital Hall that allows audiences to experience the music uncompromised - the way that the composers intended for it to be heard.

The “BEAMS Electronic Music Marathon” is also part of the Leonard Bernstein Festival of the Creative Arts TM . Sponsored by the Arts Council, The Poses Awards, the Theodore and Jane Norman Fund, and the Center for German and European Studies at Brandeis University, with additional support from Parsons Audio and the Computer Music Studio at Boston University.
