"I'm exploring the musical possibilities of latency with the Face the Music students, processing the cumulative Zoom sound. Basically experimenting to see if the unpredictability (and, let's be real, the challenges) of playing music collaboratively over the Internet can be activated as a musical component."  – Conrad Tao

The teen musicians of Kaufman Music Center’s Face the Music new music program are delving into the possibilities of musical learning and performing within the structure of modern technology. With rehearsals and activities entirely online this fall, students have shown their strength, creativity, adaptability and musical passion through their performance projects featured in this online concert. Tune in to find out how these teens have pushed the limits from within their homes and devices in order to continue connecting, exploring and innovating!

Plus, you won't want to miss their collaboration with KMC Artist-In-Residence Conrad Tao! A dynamic pianist and composer leading a new generation of classical music, Conrad has also embraced the experimental and innovative possibilities of interaction through the online realm. Please tune in to hear Conrad perform live and socially-distanced with Face the Music teens as they interact with latency as a musical element and discover in real time the fusion of acoustic instruments, Zoom and digital audio workstation effects.
