On March 3, The University of Tampa will welcome electronic composer Mark Snyder, who will give an electroacoustic music and multimedia concert at 4 p.m. in Reeves Theatre. The concert is free and open to the public.
Using a laptop, video projector, clarinet, tuba and accordion, Snyder creates wordless, multimedia compositions, orchestrated with live instrument processing, prerecorded sounds and video. Snyder’s compositions have been described as “a fantastic and colorful sonic journey of musical storytelling.”
Snyder produces soundscapes that envelop the viewer, and charged arrangements keyed specifically to the moving image. Works such as
are acutely aware of the passage of time, of duration, and venture beyond the establishment of a mood.
Working in conjunction with found and computer-generated video, Snyder moves seamlessly between high and low influences, and the realms of “art” and popular music. He states his mission as engaging the listener, as much as experimenting with the esoteric forms and technology particular to his discipline.
Snyder is a composer, performer, producer, songwriter, video artist and teacher. He is an assistant professor of music at the University of Mary Washington, teaching courses in electronic music, composition and theory.
The concert is presented by the UT Department of Music. For more information, contact Bradford Blackburn at (813) 257-3399 or
