If you have a question about this talk, please contact Timothy G. Griffin.

Alejandro Vinao ( is currently composer in residence at the Computer Laboratory. His work pushes the boundaries of music notation, with complex processes interacting in real time, and changing in ways that cannot easily be represented. He and Alan Blackwell will discuss current techniques in the representation of digital music, including some review of the developing practice of artists programming on-stage, generating music synthesis programs on the fly in front of a live audience. Viñao has received a number of international prizes and awards, has been played and broadcast throughout Europe and the U.S.A, and featured in international festivals. He has received commissions from institutions including IRCAM in France, M.I.T., the BBC Symphony Orchestra and the Kronos quartet. During the 80’s Viñao worked at IRCAM at regular intervals and in 1987 he was composer in residence at M.I.T.
