Open to all Northeastern students, the Electronic Music Ensemble was established specifically with the interests of Music Technology majors in mind. The ensemble is devoted to the performance of modern works that incorporate electronic instruments or electronic sound processing. The ensemble has access to a variety of electronic instruments, sound generators, processors, samplers, MIDI and alternative controllers, and laptop computers. The ensemble is also open to acoustic instrumentalists interested in performing contemporary music. Rehearsals are typically once per week, and a concert is given at the end of each semester.
Admission into the ensemble is by audition only, with auditions held in the first week of each semester. To audition successfully, a candidate must display an ability to read music, a working knowledge of electronic music equipment (unless auditioning as an acoustic instrumentalist), and a desire to commit to the ensemble. The Electronic Music Ensemble fulfills the ensemble requirement for music majors.
