Experimental Music Studios
Pushing fifty, the Experimental Music Studios are the outgrowth of the daddy of them all, Lejaren Hillerís first-of-its-kind studio set up in 1958 when the UIUC site was ahead of all others in the western hemisphere. Hillerís computer sound synthesis was augmented by his colleaguesí creations: Herbert BrŁnís expanded gestural computer synthesis, Salvatore Martiranoís Sal-Mar Construction, and James Beauchampís Harmonic Tone Generator. Our composers today are not yet finished with experimental music. With lots of serious pro audio gear in ten individually designed, highly equipped, and specialized studios, composers here have generated, mixed, processed, and recorded sounds into compositions that have won awards from at least fourteen different venues. The EMS mission of education and creativity continues at the highest level, electronics harnessed to enhance musical imagination.
