Go here to see composer Maurice Wright talk about his new work Darwiniana, to be premiered by the Network for New Music Ensemble at concerts in Philadelphia this coming weekend. Maurice is a master of computer music, and has for some time been applying his expertise to what he calls “visual music” – computer imagery – as well. The piece will bring together an instrumental ensemble, electronic sound, and visuals based on the work of Charles Darwin.
