Mark Snyder at FSU, Peabody Conservatory & SEAMUS

MS_Rice_Dryer2-300x273Mark Snyder, Assistant Professor of Music, had his multimedia work, Butterfly for processed clarinet, electronics and video performed at the 2013 Society of ElectroAcoustic Musicians in the United States (SEAMUS) conference in St. Paul, Minnesota on April 19th.

On April 10th, Mark gave a master class about his music and video art to the computer music department at Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore Maryland.

On April 5th, Mark was a guest artist at Fairmont State University in Fairmont West Virginia. In addition to concertizing his own work and giving a masterclass, Mark took Junior Music and Computer Science major Becky Brown along so she could perform one of her original compositions, Rex for processed harp and voice, and she also gave a master class on harp performance and processing. Out of all his accomplishments this semester, he was most pleased with this since host composer Dan Eichenbaum requested it after hearing Becky perform her piece in composition class when he came to visit UMW.
