Jeffrey Hass is Professor of Composition at Indiana University, Bloomington, where he serves as the Director of the Center for Electronic and Computer Music (CECM). He previously taught music theory and composition at Rutgers University and the Interlochen Center for the Arts. His compositions have been premiered by the Louisville Orchestra, the Memphis Symphony and the Concordia Chamber Orchestra. They have been performanced at Lincoln Center and at national conferences of the Society of Composers, International Computer Music Conference, International Double Reed Society, SEAMUS and the College Music Society.
"For the past three years," Jeff says, "I have been working with contemporary dance with computer music and interactive electronics and video. With this project, my goal is to create a unified network of sensors, video tracking and sound data, processed by a central program that will interact with dancers and musicians in a sophisticated manner to produce and/or control music and video. The outcome will be one work for instrumentalist(s) and one work for dancer(s) utilizing this system."
