jason freeman : about
Jason Freeman's works break down conventional barriers between composers, performers, and listeners, using cutting-edge technology and unconventional notation to turn audiences and musicians into compositional collaborators. His music has been performed by the American Composers Orchestra, Speculum Musicae, the So Percussion Group, the Nieuw Ensemble, Le Nouvel Ensemble Moderne, and Evan Ziporyn, and his interactive installations and software art have been exhibited at the Lincoln Center Festival, the Boston CyberArt Festival, and the Transmediale Festival and featured in the New York Times and on National Public Radio. N.A.G. (Network Auralization for Gnutella) (2003), a commission from Turbulence.org, was described by Billboard as an example of the webs mind-expanding possibilities. Freeman graduated summa cum laude from Yale University and is currently a doctoral candidate at Columbia University, where he also teaches computer music. He recently completed a year-long fellowship at Akademie Schloss Solitude in Stuttgart, Germany, where he worked with a team led by sound artist Max Neuhaus to create Auracle, a voice-controlled networked sound instrument.
