Reembodied Sound is an interdisciplinary symposium and festival, focusing on current and emerging practices in music and sonic art involving the use of transducers or surface speakers. Taking place at the historic Computer Music Center at Columbia University (formerly the Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center), this three day event features artists, researchers, scholars, and engineers from across the globe to investigate issues of aesthetics, ethnography, technical design, compositional techniques, history, gender representation, and pedagogy. The symposium is designed for participants and attendees to share practical information, explore new tools and new possibilities, and to lay a foundation for scholarly discourse and technological investigation through a series of presentations, panel discussions, workshops, performances, and sound art installations.

The symposium is free to all members of the Columbia University community. For additional details and a full program, please visit the conference website.

Reembodied Sound is sponsored by the Columbia University’s Computer Music Center and the MFA Program in Sound Arts Program (Columbia University School of the Arts), with co-sponsorships from the and the Department of Music, Center for Ethnomusicology, the Center for Science and Society, and the Heyman Center for Humanities, and the Center for Science and Society, and additional support from the Fritz Reiner Center for Contemporary Music.
