"Drawing Noise," an innovative multimedia piece, made its world premiere at the International Festival for Innovations in Music Production and Composition (IFIMPaC) at Leeds College of Music in Leeds, England, United Kingdom.  IFIMPaC attracts innovative musical compositions and performances from composers throughout Europe and North America.  Its paper presentations and performances explore the latest innovations in production techniques, electonic music composition, image sonification, multichannel soundscape compositions, impulse responses in an audio-visual live performance, electronic and digital instrument-building practices and expressive diffusion.
