Graduate Colloquium

Presented by Graduate Studies in Music, the Don Wright Faculty of Music Graduate Colloquium series includes lectures by distinguished guests, Western faculty members, and senior graduate students on all fields of research and creative activity in music.

Christopher Cayari, Assistant Professor of Music Education, Purdue University.
“Music Making in the Virtual Age”

Digital music on the Internet is ubiquitous through social media sites and streaming services. The media and technology that afford the general population access to not only consume but also create music in virtual spaces have shaped the way music is made and performed. Multitrack music videos and recordings made in do-it-yourself studios located in bedrooms, basements, and classrooms abound on the Web. Dr. Christopher Cayari will share his research on how people are using YouTube to share music performance and recordings. He will discuss how the idea of ensemble has expanded due to the way musicians are using digital media and how virtual communities are encouraging musical learning, collaboration, and innovation. Virtual music making on YouTube has allowed for global interactions and collaborations where people come together to perform, unbound by time and space. He will present examples of innovative music making on YouTube and give suggestions on how musicians within academia might apply virtual practices to the classroom, studio, and performance venue.

All Colloquium series events take place on selected Fridays in Talbot College 101 at 3:30 pm. (unless otherwise noted). Admission is free, and all are welcome to attend!
