Technology and music have a symbiotic relationship. Developments and inventions constantly change the way we write, perform, and listen to music of all styles and genres. Technosonics XV: Found Sound celebrates the latest innovations in music technology by showcasing digital music, electro-acoustic music, and the combination of high profile performers with UVA composers and faculty. The two-day event includes collaboration of electronic artists led by Annie Gosfield at Old Cabell Hall as well as Thursday’s livestreamed (via www.music.virginia.edu) concert featuring Philadelphia-based computer composer Joo Won Park (above).

Thursday 11/6 & Friday 11/7. Free, 8pm. Old Cabell Hall, UVA. 924-3052.
