Third Practice Electroacoustic Music Festival

28 Westhampton Way
Richmond, VA 23218

Third Practice is an annual festival of new electroacoustic music and mixed media presented by the Department of Music and the Modlin Center for the Arts at the University of Richmond. Now in its nineteenth year, the festival will present works for instruments and computer, new instruments and performance interfaces, video, and stereo and multi-channel works for fixed media. The festival will feature Eighth Blackbird, our ensemble-in-residence, as well as featured guest artist clarinetist Andrea Cheeseman.

Third Practice 2019 explores the emerging electroacoustic art form and its relationship to past and present musical practices. This year the festival will present pieces that combine audio and video, that navigate the boundary between experimental and popular musical practices, that engage with instruments and performance practices from around the world, and that feature new instruments and explore cutting edge sonic practices. All works are presented on immersive multi-channel surround audio systems.
