JASON FREEMAN, composer, web artist

flock logo

miamian JASON FREEMAN is a composer whose music creates new connections among composers, performers, and listeners, using extended notation and new technology to experiment with the ways in which music is created, performed, and heard. his works range from traditional concert performances to mass-audience participation environments to online collaborative music tools to software art

his creative residency at isaw includes a project he calls sound microscope, a web applet accessible from isaw’s main page that will help users explore the complex inner structures of sounds. a simple visual interface (think google maps, but for sound) that will let you zoom in and out and move up and down to isolate and magnify tiny moments in time and tiny slices in frequency of a short sound file

isaw is also acting as producer of flock, jason’s made-in-miami commission for the carnival center for the performing arts

this residency is made possible through partnerships with carnival center for the performing arts and georgia institute of technology. iSAW is funded by the department of cultural affairs of miami dade county and the division of cultural affairs of the state of florida
