Festival brings electroacoustic music to campus

The Third Practice Electroacoustic Music Festival will return to Richmond for its eighth year this weekend. This two-day festival explores both the electroacoustic tradition's variety and its connection to past musical practices, according to the event's Web site, and is devoted to introducing new works through commissions and premieres. Benjamin Broening, associate professor of music and the event's artistic director, founded Third Practice and has been involved with the festival ever since. There was a void in electroacoustic music throughout the Richmond area, he said, and this event has offered the opportunity for people to get more regional exposure to the industry. Broening described electroacoustic music as a genre that presented music involving various degrees of technology - there could be pieces for instruments, computer, video, invented instruments or a mixture of any of these things. Since its first year, Third Practice has grown from a two-concert event to one that features anywhere between five and seven concerts during a two-day period. Staff from the music department and the Modlin Center for the Arts put on the entire festival.
