I will present music and give a talk at “ReVisioning the (W)hole II: Curious Intersections”:
University of Wyoming
September 23-25, 2008
The event was organized by Margaret Wilson, Meg Van Baalen-Wood, Margaret Haydon and Mark Sheridan Rabideau based around the concepts of Curiosity, Creativity, and Collaboration.
Mark Sheridan Rabideau does a wonderful job of articulating many of the themes of the conference in the interview below. This is one quote that really hit home for me as both an artists and teacher!
"What students learn while actualizing their ideas, on any scale, is that failure is an inevitable consequence of the act of invention, that tenacity and resilience are required throughout the process, and that the world can be changed in ways big and small."

Juan Blanco's Espacios V in Daniel Langlois Foundation Latin American Electroacoustic Music Collection
Composer Ricardo Dal Farra worked for twenty five years to compile the Daniel Langlois Foundation Latin American Electroacoustic Music Collection. It is an amazing archive of recordings, biographies, interviews, scores and pictures.
Included are many works by Juan Blanco (Cuba), one of the founding fathers of electronic music in Latin America.
