Conservatory composition professor Paul Rudy collaborates with The World Opera in its international workshop on High Quality Dynamic cross-continental Networked Artistic interaction, August 28–30, 2013. Rudy and his students interact and perform with collaborators in Struer, Denmark, August 29, 2013. 

This conference in Struer, the City of Sound, marks the grand opening of the world’s first lab for digitally networked artistic performances, through the World Opera Lab. The acknowledged experts in the field from around the world explore the technical possibilities of cutting traditional geographic strings and bringing artists together across continents for a virtual artistic interaction in real time, be it opera, music or other performing art disciplines.

Participants include Mark Schubin, Engineer-in-charge at the Metropolitan Opera in New York, Professor Chris Chafe, director of the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics at Stanford University, and Jeremy Cooperstock, Associate Professor at the Centre for Intelligent Machines at McGill University in Montreal.

On August 29, Paul Rudy and his students will perform, (via computers in a jamlink session) in a jazz-café at Struer Music School with jazz musicians in Struer.  The performance, produced by Synthia Payne, launches at 10 a.m., Central Standard Time, USA.  Details on live streaming link, via ustream.tv soon.
