Music Composition/Technology Lecturer Amanda Schoofs will participate in the prestigious 2015 MATA Festival. The Festival takes place April 13-18 at The Kitchen in New York City. MATA describes itself as “being motivated by a desire to create community among composers in the early stages of their careers, especially those whose work does not fit into existing institutions.” This years’ festival had a thousand applicants, of which 19 composers were chosen to present their work. Schoofs, one of those 19, has been invited to vocally perform one of her graphic scores. Congratulations!
