The program features works by graduate students Daniel Peterson, Abby Aresty, Stelios Manousakis, and Nicolás Varchausky and the world premiere of A Line (Part I, IDA), by School of Music composition faculty and DXARTS Director Juan Pampin.

Pampins works explore the territory delineated by the concepts of site, memory, and materiality through the use of algorithmic strategies to produce aural phenomena. His sound art installations consist of site-specific immersive and interactive sound environments, with locations ranging from bathrooms to urban public spaces; many of them also make use of the Internet to connect distant places through sound, either to exchange their acoustic traits or to transform sites into terminals or extensions of the network, where sound serves as a vehicle to materialize its ubiquitousness.

Tickets for the concert are $15, $10 for students and seniors. They can be purchased at the UW Arts Ticket Office, 206-543-4880 or online.
