From Michael L Benedikt, ACSA Distinguished Professor, Director, Center for American Architecture and Design at University of Texas at Austin:
"Architecture is frozen music," as Goethe once wrote, and the phrase continues to resonate in this age.
With new and traditional compositional techniques, new and traditional physical and sonic materials, and deeper notions of "performance" in hand, the Center for American Architecture and Design and the Sarah and Ernest Butler School of Music at The University of Texas at Austin are pleased to announce the MUSIC IN ARCHITECTURE - ARCHITECTURE IN MUSIC Symposium.
Scheduled for October 19-22, 2011, the Symposium will involve live performances of competition-winning composition installations and commissioned works, as well as paper presentations and roundtables, all with media coverage.
We would very much appreciate your forwarding this Call for Competition Entries and Call for Papers to architecture and music colleagues and students that you think might be especially interested:
