iPad Ensemble

The recently created iPad ensemble is CCSU Department of Music’s first chamber ensemble focused on the live performance of the many and varied genres in electro-acoustic music. Throughout the course of the semester ensemble members explore new applications, new works, new ways of reading notation, and new ways of performing. Unlike most other chamber ensembles, members joining the iPad ensemble have probably never performed music on an iPad. The ensemble meets once a week as an ensemble for a full time block and the ensemble performs at least once a semester. Works performed range from transcriptions of traditional works, graphic scores, aleatoric scores, and premieres of works written by students, faculty, and even internationally known composers. Non-majors may enroll in the iPad with faculty approval. A limited number of iPads are available for use. The iPad ensemble may be repeated each semester for credit as a course elective.
