Ensemble In Residence


MGMC 2017 is pleased to welcome Sound Out Loud as its ensemble-in-residence for the 21st annual meeting. Sound Out Loud will present a new music concert on March 31, 2017 of music written and submitted by graduate students across the U.S.

Sound Out Loud is a new music performing ensemble currently based out of Madison, Wisconsin. The group specializes in contemporary music from the early 20th century to the present, as well as commissions new works to be written for it.

Having drawn inspiration from numerous performance ensembles (such as Eighth Blackbird, Silk Road, and the International Contemporary Ensemble), the group seeks to expand the realm of possibilities within the chamber ensemble repertoire through the implementation of experimental techniques, the incorporation of a variety of instruments and musical styles from the Middle East and Asia, innovative performance practice, and the use of live electronics.
