Sound & digital art: guest talk
This Thursday, February 17th, I'm talking in the Cafés numériques (digital cafés) series. My talk is entitled Le son et l'art numérique (sound & digital art - link to more information on the series)
I'm focusing on two topics:
What does it mean to talk about digital sound and analog sound?
- what sound is
- short history of audio recording technology
- LP record versus CD
- why artists today (like Jay-Z & Kanye West) are still recording & mixing with analog gear in studios such as Peter Gabriel's great place
- advantages of digital technology... including the fact that almost anybody can play with sounds today!

Do we compose differently with digital technology?
Well, I'm answering the question in a very applied way: as part of the talk, I'm performing the première of Electroclarinet 3, a new composition for basset-horn & live electronics.
