Reimagining Accessibility and Inclusivity in Virtual Events (Casting Light #3)

July 28, 2021

"Why not use the positive aspects of digital platforms to create something totally new and free from unnecessary comparisons, or reimagine our existing platforms in ways that intentionally diversify experiences? How can we transform our educational and performance spaces in more equitably accessible and equally inclusive ways?"

In the third installment of ACF and I Care if You Listen (.com)'s Casting Light series, Michele Cheng speak with artists about their experiences with virtual concerts over the last year and imagines a hybrid future for concerts, festivals, and lessons. With streaming, "institutions have a unique opportunity to address the many problems that have been ignored long before the pandemic," Cheng writes.

I'm excited to share that “A Different Reality”― an intermedia project for solo marimba and electronics written for the incomparable percussionist/collaborator Ian Rosenbaum― has been selected as part of the New Music USA #CreatorDevelopmentFund. This project is an expansion of a work initially commissioned and premiered by National Sawdust. I’m so thankful to National Sawdust for the initial opportunity to carry out this work and to New Music USA for the support. Can’t wait to bring this project to fruition!

The project is supported by New Music USA’s Creator Development Fund with major support from Howard Gilman Foundation, The Amphion Foundation, Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, Sony Music Group, Cheswatyr Foundation, The ASCAP Foundation, and BMI Foundation. The work is also made possible through donations to the New Music USA Endowment.


Time: March 28, 2021 (Pacific Daylight Time)

Location: CCRMA Live, Stanford University, U.S. (Virtual streaming)

Role: Performer

The Coronavirus Crisis has changed our lives and we are in the midst of a long period without concerts as we knew them. In addition to the problem of large audiences, the regulations also make it 'virtually' impossible for musicians to get together, to rehearse, or perform. However, many technologies and solutions are already available, helping us to find new ways of collaborating and transporting our work to audiences. We have been programming, testing, and rehearsing in an online environment between California (US), Berlin (DE) and Ghent (BE). We present concerts that connect musicians from these locations and guests from other places to each other. The sessions are broadcast live with audio and video feeds from each site.
