SPLICE -  Summer institute for Performance, Listening, Interpretation, and Creation of Electroacoustic music - is a weeklong, intensive program for performers and composers who work with instruments and electronics. Held at Western Michigan University's School of Music, over 60 musicians and composers from across the US will participate in workshops, masterclasses, private lessons, and public performances of new works. The public is invited to free concerts each weeknight at 7:30 pm in the Dalton Center Recital Hall, and a full day of performances from 10:30 am - 8:00 pm, on Saturday, June 30. 

Co-founders Christopher Biggs and Keith Kirchoff, performer/composer Sam Wells, and composer/participant Carolyn Borcherding joined Cara Lieurance to talk about the variety of public concerts offered during SPLICE week, and how electroacoustic music festivals and workshops foster community and growth within the new music world.
