What would you play if your musical instrument could produce any imaginable sound? D. Andrew Stewart explores new ways of making music with unique sensor-based control surfaces known as digital musical instruments. Stewart will be demonstrating and performing excerpts of “T-Stick” music that he has commissioned from composers in Canada and The USA, in addition to presenting selections from his own completed works.
