Augmented Programmatic Music
This interactive session explores augmenting programmatic music through a variety of technology. The session begins with a brief presentation on how we augmented programmatic music performed by a community band I worked with. Following the brief presentation, we will work together to augment a programmatic piece of music. The session will end with a discussion on what could be learned in a project like this and how we might implement similar projects in the settings we facilitate. A laptop or tablet is recommended for this session. This session will begin with a brief presentation on how I was asked to come up with ways to augment a traditional ensemble using a variety of technology. I will provide examples, discuss the process we took for each piece, and provide a behind the scenes look at the software (Ableton) and MIDI controllers we used. For instance, in the piece “Mekong” by Robert W. Smith, which is a programmatic piece about the Vietnam War, we augmented the ensemble by triggering water, plane, helicopter, gun, napalm, and other sounds to enhance the story of the piece. Following this brief presentation (most likely less than 20 minutes), we will select programmatic music and work in groups to come up with ways we can augment an music excerpt using the technology we have (I will bring some MIDI controllers to use with Ableton, and I will encourage others to download Soundplant). Once everyone starts working, I will walk around and facilitate by asking questions and guiding people through problem solving. The session will conclude with a discussion on how our classes might explore augmenting performances in the places we work.

Creating a Sonic Signature: Musical Being and Sound Identity
In this experiential session we will work through a series of exercises with the end goal of creating “sonic signatures”—micro-compositions of just a few seconds that represent the individual as a musical being, broadly defined. Creating a sonic signature is typically associated with marketing (consider for example, the “Mac sound,” or the “Intel sound”), but engaging in this exercise can also serve as a way for teachers and learners to: (1) reflect and share on how they experience and make meaning from music in everyday life, (2) consider how these experiences shape their respective personal identities, and (3) create representations of these identities through the visual and sonic arts. As facilitators of this session we will guide participants through three exercises. In the first exercise, we’ll examine how we perceive ourselves as musical beings using storytelling and visual collage strategies. In the storytelling approach, participants, in small groups, share personally meaningful anecdotes from their lived experiences engaging with music. The collage approach takes a different tack by having participants construct a visual representation of their musical identity by cutting/pasting images from magazines and other print-based media (or doing the equivalent digitally using online image archives and Google slides or Prezi). Building on these initial exercises, we’ll then work together in small groups to distill the essence of our identities to 1-3 concise “identity statements” (e.g., “music is a way for me to enter into another space”). Finally, participants will individually create a sonic signature that serves as a representation in sound of their identity statements, composed within a DAW context (no previous experience necessary) by manipulating and organizing found or newly created sounds. To conclude the session, we’ll share with each other our sonic signatures and the meaning(s) behind them.

Unlocking Creativity and Collaboration School-Wide using Soundtrap.com
This session will look at the many ways Soundtrap.com has been used in an elementary and middle school environment to enhance creativity, collaboration in not only the music program, but also P.E. Art, Science, Technology Integration and much more. For over a decade the students at Go Like The Wind School in Ann Arbor, MI. have used multiple platforms and technologies to create original music. Then along came Soundtrap.com and the game changed. Not only have they been creating more original music, but they have also used this empowering tool to enhance presentations, create interactive art projects, study soundwaves in science class and collaborate with other schools. Many examples will be given of how this one platform can change the landscape of creativity school-wide.

Making, Participating, and Community-building: JMUke and Places of Music Learning

In this session, faculty and students involved in the JMUke project will: (a) review relevant research literature related to informal and participatory learning as well as the intersection of maker culture and music learning; (b) facilitate a truncated JMUke session in which participants build and play ukuleles; and (c) facilitate a discussion exploring possibilities for integrating participatory and/or community-based experiences into music courses (and other arts-based courses). Throughout, presenters will discuss elements of experience design and social impact related to JMUke project (drawing on data generated at actual JMUke events hosted by students).

At JMU and in the surrounding community, most opportunities for individuals to experience music are presentational in nature. While these may be meaningful experiences for some, the prevalence of presentational music may limit music-making opportunities for community members. Recent research indicates that existing presentational music groups engage only 10-20% of K-12 students nationally, and just 5% of American adults identify as participants in community presentational music making. JMUke, a project funded by a JMU Faculty Senate Mini-Grant, attempts to address this problem by engaging undergraduate music students through using technologies and pedagogical techniques heretofore underrepresented in their pre-service teacher education. Students participating in this project build ukuleles and plan participatory music making/learning events at various locations in the community, addressing various populations (e.g., children, adults, families).

Rising from the Ashes: A Live Remix of Songs Created by Adolescents In Music Therapy
Rising from the Ashes is a cycle of songs that explores the lived experience of adolescents who have had adverse childhood experiences. For this performance, I will be remixing original songs of teenage songwriters who I worked with in music therapy to reveal a psychological journey from protecting vulnerability and exploring abandonment, to developing faith and love. It is my hope that audiences will gain empathy for adolescents that are typically viewed as “troubled teens” as their trails, tribulations, and rewards are revealed through sound and song. Audiences will have an opportunity to remix a song from the study and discuss the results of the study.

Making Music Appreciation Meaningful and Engaging: Pedagogical Approaches That Work
Whether it is lack of student interest, course duration, or many other reasons, many music educators have discovered that teaching music appreciation courses can be challenging. Music appreciation courses, however, have the potential to forge connections over disciplines, social divides, distance, and time. Over the past eleven years, I have researched and field-tested many engaging instructional and curricular approaches to unlocking this potential. I would like to share ideas that work.

INVASION: Building An Interactive Movement Installation
INVASION is an interactive installation where the movements of those entering the space represent visual content that is sampled, manipulated in real time, and projected on to a series of layered screens. It proposes an alternate approach to dance-making, presentation, and production in response to several emerging trends: hybrid art forms, the infiltration of live performance into contemporary art museums, interactivity, and the rise of the “selfie” culture. When entering the installation, participants are asked to stand in front of a Kinect camera that creates 3-D scans of their movement. These scans are then inputted into Z-Vector, a new sound reactive visualization tool using camera-based depth sensors. The technology allows “invaders” to become both the performers and interpreters of the installation’s content. They experience an endless feedback loop where they witness their moving bodies, respond (or not) to the projected images, and thereby generate further content for their experience. INVASION challenges pre-conceived notions of dance, thrusting those who do not even consider themselves dancers into corporeal exploration. The installation is visual, performative, and responsive, creating a rich experience where “invaders” move, play, and live inside a real-time, artistic process. This movement session will explore the educational applications of an interactive installation, whereby students can become “invaders”. Participants will learn how they can create a simple, low-cost version of the installation structure that allows students to explore improvisational and choreographic possibilities in terms of content, sequencing, repetition, and development. They will then have an opportunity to experience both improvising in front of the Kinect camera as well as sampling and manipulating movement material using Z Vector.

Social Entrepreneurship in the Artist Curriculum
Entrepreneurship is a fundamental element of the artistic identity and essential to the proliferation of one’s own musical or artistic skills. In the growing trend of entrepreneurship integrated into curricula throughout higher education, it is important to remember that in the arts, entrepreneurship is unique in the role it take in shaping students’ professional identities as well as their sense of social efficacy. This presentation will present an engaging investigation as to why arts entrepreneurship must be more than focusing on developing particular skill sets, career training, or artistic portfolio development. We will investigate the context in which artists of all stripes have historically applied their entrepreneurial skills. We will examine how the artistic process and growth are centered around key themes of entrepreneurship including how social entrepreneurship experiences can catalyze artistic productivity.

CompositionCraft - A Minecraft Mod
In this hands-on session, participants will explore ComposionCraft – a music composition Minecraft modification (Mod) designed by the University of Arkansas’ Music Education and Tesseract programs. The modification provides music teachers with necessary crosswalks between students’ experiences playing Minecraft and learning to compose and create music in a new and unique way. Additionally, CompositionCraft provides a unique experience for students to connect to STEAM initiatives and the artistic processes in the National Core Arts Standards. For children, Minecraft is a fun and addicting video game where users play alone or together with friends. For educators, it can be a learning environment, design tool, and activity that fosters 21st century skills of critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and creativity. At its core, Minecraft is about placing and mining blocks. This is similar to ways composers place and mine musical elements to create a new piece of music. The game world consists of 3D objects—mainly blocks—that represent building materials. Players gather material blocks and use them to form various constructions. In music, musicians gather musical elements and use them to form various constructions within music. Incorporating Minecraft into music classrooms provides students opportunities to connect two types of “architectures” - spatial-visual structure (building an online world using Minecraft) and musical structure (composing music). Both “architectures” share similar artistic processes within the National Core Arts Standards. An example of CompositionCraft may be viewed at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vXR9kqwpauY.

Participants will need be have Minecraft Java Edition which can be purchased at https://minecraft.net/en-us/ for $26.95 and Minecraft Forge version 1.8.9 (free) from https://files.minecraftforge.net/. I would like those attending my hands-on session to be able to play the mod and then discuss their experience.

Impact and the Arts: Using Protest in Creative Expression
This interactive workshop is centered on the notion that the arts can be powerful vehicles for issues of justice and for inciting social change. The two presenters will detail the ways in which they approach impact and the arts in a compulsory, integrative arts course at a public high school. In this course, students are required to study protest works and to create their own protest works to be discussed amongst peers and displayed/performed in an appropriate setting. Workshop attendees will gain valuable tools for presenting protest, analyzing protest works with adolescent students, and creating protest works with students of all ages. In addition, attendees will experience the process of creating either an aural or visual protest work to share with others in attendance. The intersection of visual art and music provides a unique collaboration that can be applied to a variety of educational settings. The presenters will close with a discussion of assessment regarding creative work and the potential applications in both the fields of music and visual arts.

Gaming Music Education
Popular music education projects and curriculum continue to develop and expand across universities, yet pre-service teachers who experience these courses often perceive musical processes used in popular music making as irrelevant in more traditional mediums (e.g., band). The purpose of this presentation is to offer a project that cross-pollinates musical behaviors and processes between general music and instrumental methods courses using video game music composition. Using littleBits Synth Kits, pre-service teachers in an elementary general music course created scoring blocks—introduction, loop, transition, tag—and aligned these blocks with a student-chosen videogame. This foundation was then passed to pre-service teachers in a beginning instrumental methods course to compose and improvise acoustic layers indicative of beginning band students. Videos of completed projects will be provided as examples. Additionally I will present a working curriculum for this videogame music project as well as offer student responses, modifications to the project, and implications for pre-service music educators and music education.

Music for the People: An Ed Sullivan Fellows Benefit
NYU Music Education is proud to co-host benefit concert Music for the People for our Ed Sullivan Fellows (ESF) Program. ESF is NYU’s community arts mentorship lab for young musicians and supports creatives ages 14-23 in building music and industry skills to explore, develop, and launch their creative careers. Now in its second year, the Ed Sullivan Fellows Program is a joint project of the NYU Music Experience Design Lab (MusEDLab), the Program in Music Education, and NYU Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development with the express purpose of serving the needs of young artists of color growing up in New York City.

Each Fellow enjoys personalized mentorship that supports and monitors their progress over the course of their time in the program, as well as unprecedented access to music industry resources at NYU and in NYC. Access is one of the main issues faced by young adults not currently enrolled in a four-year college due to attrition, financial constraint, and disconnect with career goals. Core Fellows are guided through arts-based entrepreneurial curriculum, and are supported through the college application, enrollment, and re-entry processes, keeping them on track to meet and surpass their professional goals.

This benefit concert will feature our original music by our Fellows alongside NYC hip-hop and Neo-Soul musicians John RobinsonOSHUN, and Steff Reed. Amadeus (music director for Trey Songz) and Toni Blackman (artist/producer/activist) will host the event scheduled to be held at the Frederick Loewe Theatre, 35 West 4th Street Friday, August 4, 2017, 7:00 PM-9:30 PM. Special guest appearance by the Reverend Al Sharpton speaking about diversity in higher education and music education!
