Being the Music

(UPDATE:  This show ended up being canceled due to budget constraints.  Alas.)

Apparently KZSU‘s own broadcast will be part of a performance on May 23.

It will be a multimedia concert by composer Luciano Chessa that will include collaborators in Bologna, Italy. We, the radio station, will play a Chessa composition for 12 minutes, which will be broadcast on stage by four FM-tuned radios. Something in our broadcast will cue the Bologna team to do … something. (They’ll be listening via the web.)

That’s all I know so far. It sounds pretty damn cool.

The show is being put on by groups including Stanford’s Music Department and the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics. I’ll update with details as I find them.
