WHEN: Tuesday, October 28th, 10:30AM (Composition Seminar) ////  WHERE: NYU Music Department Room 220 (24/32 Waverly Place, NY 10003)


Eric Chasalow is widely recognized as a composer as comfortable in the studio as the concert hall.  He is especially well known for creating a vivid kind of “super-musique concrete” that combines traditional instruments with manipulated pre-recorded sounds from any source imaginable. He has also become known for his devotion to archiving the stories of the pioneers of electronic music, many of whom where teachers and friends.
Eric teaches at Brandeis University, where he directs BEAMS, the Brandeis Electro-Acoustic Music Studio. He studied at the famed Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center in New York, where his principal teacher was Mario Davidovsky.
