Celebrating Clarence Barlow
Symposium and Concert on the Life and Legacy of a Pioneer in Computer Music
Freitag 05.07.2024 11:00 - 21:00 Ligeti Zentrum, 10. OG

Clarence Barlow (1945-2023) was a leading protagonist of algorithmic composition and a pioneer in the use of computers in musical composition and related fields. His wide-ranging oeuvre as a composer, interdisciplinary researcher, author and software developer offers the opportunity to examine various facets of his musical and theoretical work.
Two symposia in Cologne and Hamburg are dedicated to a range of artistic and academic aspects of Barlow‘s work and offer personal insights into Barlow‘s life and teaching. In Hamburg, the focus is on sonic,
music-theoretical and compositional aspects. It also deals with interpretative challenges in Barlow‘s works.
