The first annual Vu Symposium on experimental, electronic, and improvised music, will be held in Park City, Utah on July 5-7, 2016.

The theme for our first symposium is quite broad. We invite scholars, performers, ensembles, composers, critics, and anyone and everyone interested in experimental, improvised, and/or electronic music to present papers, pieces, curated concerts, ideas, half-ideas, lectures, performance pieces, improvisations, or installations that ask, answer, or critique the following question:

“What happened, what’s happening now, and what could happen?”

Our goal is to provide a forum in which any thinker and/or practitioner who is writing about, performing, presenting, or otherwise championing experimental, improvised and electronic music can freely engage in discourse. The format of the symposium will vary each year based on the nature and the number of submissions but will include: concerts, roundtables, paper presentations, and longer lectures. This symposium does not focus on keynotes, featured ensembles, or featured composers, it is focused on the free exchange of ideas of its participants. Because of this, our symposium is free of charge. Participants are highly encouraged to attend all three days of the symposium.
