Fusion Of Intermedia Art And Electronic Music Will Be At Museum Of Art Sept. 23

The University of Iowa School of Art and Art History intermedia and video art program and the School of Music Electronic Music Studios will present "Spatial Intersections II," a fusion of electronic music and intermedia art, at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 23 in the UI Museum of Art (UIMA).

"Spatial Intersections II" is free and open to the public. Students in the UI departments presenting the performance will be featured in the program.

The program's coordinators, UI composition students Tohm Judson and Karen Koch, said artists and musicians will use visual and sonic experiences to "stimulate the audience."

The Sept. 23 program will parallel the first "Spatial Intersections" event, hosted at the UIMA in February 2003. Live music performances at that event included sound diffusion, the performing of sculptural instruments and computer-generated music.

The UI intermedia and video art program, founded in 1968, is devoted to experimental and interdisciplinary art forms. Since its creation, the program has become nationally and internationally recognized as a model for the nurturance of the experimental arts within a university environment.

The Electronic Music Studios have been part of the composition program at the UI School of Music for more than 30 years. By offering a traditional emphasis on the compositional aspects of electronic media, the studios have helped prepare Iowa's graduates for composing, research and teaching careers at colleges and universities throughout the United States.

The UI Museum of Art, located on North Riverside Drive in Iowa City, is open noon to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday, and noon to 9 p.m. Thursday and Friday. Admission is free. Public metered parking is available in UI parking lots west and north of the museum.
