Computers and synthesizers are hardly new, yet the face of music is constantly changing thanks to the evolution of electronics. This week, UVA puts its stamp on the computerized art form with TechnoSonics XIV, a collaboration between composition and computer technologies faculty and the drama and dance department as they take on the frontier of sound. Original works by Matthew Burtner and Ted Coffey accompany special choreography by Kimberly Brooks Mata and Kathryn Schetlick. Special guests Da Capo Chamber Players, composer-technologist Chris Chafe, and dancer-choreographer Paul Matteson share the stage.

Thursday 10/17 & Friday 10/18. Free, 8pm. Ruth Caplin Theatre, 109 Culbreth Dr. 924-3052.
