where code and music meet
UBC Music students perform electroacoustic music using computer instruments and audio/video processes.
Students control these instruments and processes through gesture tracking of traditional instruments, dance, piano or string performance, or by using webcams, Kinects, Wiis, accelerometers, game controls, custom circuits, Arduinos, iPhones, iPads, or other tablets. Student presentations are for their Minor in Applied Music Technology.
