Technology has always played an
important role in music history and composers have often been among the first
to embrace technological innovations in their music. From early
innovations in instrument design to the birth of recording technology and
today's explosion of computerized music services, technology has had, and
continues to have, a fascinating impact on the art of composing music.
Seth Boustead is a composer, radio host, arts manager and
writer, concert producer, in-demand speaker and visionary with the goal of
revolutionizing how and where classical music is performed and how it is
perceived by the general public. He is the founder and director of Access
Contemporary Music and the host of the internationally syndicated radio program
Relevant Tones, the only syndicated classical music radio show in the country
to focus on contemporary music.
A frequent guest speaker, Seth has given lectures and appeared on panel
presentations at conferences around the country and at UNAM in Mexico City. He
has spoken about diverse topics such as fundraising for non-profits, public
relations, new directions in contemporary classical music and composing for
film. In 2011 he gave a TEDx talk called the Future of Classical Music and was
one of only 10 people chosen for the honor of speaking.
While there will be light refreshments available, feel free to "brown bag" it and bring in food from the outside to eat during the social hour.
