NSEME is a national festival that was originally created by a Peabody Conservatory student who wanted to bring together electronic music composers and performers. It features works of undergraduate and graduate students in U.S. colleges and universities.

“Hosting an event like NSEME gives a unique opportunity to our students to work from inside the artistic, academic and organizational aspects of a conference,” said Panayiotis Kokoras, UNT composition professor and director of the Center for Experimental Music and Intermedia. “We are excited to welcome attendees to our state-of-the-art facilities and to get to know the most recent advances in computer music first-hand.”

This year’s event will feature guest artist Carla Scaletti, an experimental composer who designed Kyma sound design language and co-founded the Symbolic Sound Corporation.
