Conference Focus and Goal
The Music and Arts Technology Program at IUPUI established a leadership role in defining music technology in the late 1980's. Each year the IUPUI music technology faculty are joined by invited guests to share ideas and the very latest music technology. The IUPUI faculty are recognized as international leaders in music technology.
The focus of the conference changes each year, as new technologies emerge. In the 1990's, synthesizers and MIDI equipment were "state-of-the-art." Today, new software tools and Internet-based environments lead the way to new applications for musicians and music teachers. Composers have shaped their creativity to exploring new devices, new music instruments and new digital sound libraries.
