Telematic music is live performance between musicians in different geographical locations using high speed/high bandwidth internet connections. This special Net Works concert features virtuoso ensemble playing by prominent artists in jazz and improvised/experimental music — pianist Myra Melford in Berkeley with bassist Mark Dresser and trombonist Michael Dessen in San Diego — in an exciting evening of co-located performance conceived for the medium.

Real time musical interaction over the internet is a growing phenomenon, and this experienced group has been pushing the boundaries of the art to explore the performance of intricate, tightly integrated music from distant locations. Their collaboration is enabled by CNMAT’s advanced research in live, net-based audio and video transmission.

This concert is supported by the UC Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society (CITRIS) in collaboration with the Center for New Music and Audio Technologies (CNMAT), Cal Performances and CineGrid member, Meyer Sound.
