The Composers Workshop is a collaborative project between composers and performers
in the UI School of Music. It is devoted to the performance of music written
at the UI and aims to foster greater co-operation and interplay between composers
and performers in the Iowa City area. The workshop is currently directed by
Amelia Kaplan, a visiting faculty member in the School of Music and interim
director of the Center for New Music.
The Electronic Music Studios have been part of the composition program at
the UI School of Music for more than 30 years. In recent years, director Larry
Fritts has brought the latest generation of technologies to the studios. Students
and faculty now have access to three multiple-platform workstations that integrate
SGI, Kyma, and Macintosh digital audio technology.
The School of Music is part of the Division of Performing Arts in the UI
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
