t00n™ (mmix) – Concerto for Orchestra and Live Digital Media
t00n™ is a concert work for orchestra and live digital media (experimental sound design, video graphics) that integrates the great tradition of the orchestra with exciting possibilities of new technology.
It’s a piece that invites young people who’ve grown up with the Internet, video games, and every kind of electronic music to the concert hall for an engaging and sensational new piece. As a World Premiere for your symphony orchestra, it gives the group added exposure and prestige. t00n™ is also a natural choice for your orchestra’s community outreach.
Support will prepare this work for performance (score printed, parts extracted, etc). I’m in the process of proposing various matching grants, and I will look forward to working with your organization in making a lasting contribution to your local new music and new media community.
