Contrabassist and CRCA researcher Mark Dresser participates in a collaborative “telematics” concert and cumulation of a research collaboration at UCSD with colleagues at UC Berkeley and Stanford.

The public performance at UCSD will include UCSD Music Department faculty Mark Dresser (contrabass), Philip Larson (voice), and Billy Mintz (drums), who will be joined in-person by UCI Music Asst Professor Michael Dessen (trombone). Joining via high-speed connection from Berkeley will be CNMAT Director David Wessel (electronics), Asst Professor of Music Myra Melford (piano); and from Stanford, CCRMA Director Chris Chafe (cello & celleto).

The group will be collaborating and exploring the musical potentials and limitations of latency in musical time, electro-acoustic processing at distance, and collaborative exploration of the medium.
