Whether direct or indirect, literal or metaphorical, the connections between performers and digital entities have both generated and been engendered by musical and narrative structures. In this presentation, I will talk about such interrelations and their impact on concept and form in two large-scale compositions that constitute my DMA Final Project: Knot an Opera! (2016) for…

Robert Daniel DeCaroli: “Snakes and the Rain: Nāga Imagery, Water Management, and Buddhist Rainmaking Rituals in Early South Asia”

May 31 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
