Young Visionaries

Young Visionaries was a program that focused on bringing music technology and contemporary works to aspiring composers and songwriters in high school.  The residency lasted for five years at Brandeis High School (NYC), and was developed with the music department.  The students used Mac computers to create musical works that entail live sampling, recording, writing lyrics, and production techniques.

Young Visionaries was geared toward the production of a record involving the multiple disciplines represented in VisionIntoArt.  Students were mentored through the process of composing on Garage Band, while learning to use basic compositional techniques and software.  They were guided through standard notation, working with live recorded tracks by the VIA ensemble and learning about basic instrumentation issues, fluent use of Garage band and basic use of Logic Express.VisionIntoArt partnered with the American Composers Orchestra and Young Audiences NY for this program.
