I was recently awarded a research grant by Seoul Institute of the Arts (SIA) in the areas of Telematic Performance, Composition, Recording and Pedagogy. I'll be working closely with noted composer and telematic performer Michael Dessen of The University of California, Irvine (UCI), along with fellow SIA colleagues to put together a pedagogical manual for the artistic use of telematic technology and to create a telematic concert series. What is telematic technology, you ask? It's the use of the internet as a medium to engage in realtime participation to remote locations around the world. Simply put, it's like playing music with others over Skype... but at a much higher quality. Like Skype on audio-steroids! I'll keep you posted on my progress.
