Solo marimba + Three-dimensional, high-definition, computer-generated sound
Electronic/Technology Showcase Concert
Saturday, 3:00 p.m.
Nathaniel Bartlett specializes in performing his own works for solo marimba plus three-dimensional, high-definition, computer-generated sound. Using his elaborate marimba/electronics rig, designed with mobility in mind, he has performed all across the US in a wide variety of venues, such as art galleries, museums, concert halls, dance spaces, warehouses, multi-purpose art spaces, and universities and colleges. Recordings of his original compositions and collaborative projects, including music for solo marimba and marimba + computer, can be found on Sound-Space Audio Lab (multi-channel and stereo, high-definition and CD-quality PCM), and Albany Records (hybrid multi-channel SACD). He studied at the Eastman School of Music, the Royal Academy of Music, the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and privately with marimbist Leigh Howard Stevens. He performs exclusively on a Malletech Imperial Grand five-octave marimba.
