Jakub Ciupinski and Cristina Spinei, Juilliard Composition Alumni; Founders
Blind Ear is a collective of composers and musicians who present interactive concerts combining new music with cutting-edge technology. It is founded on the belief that composing is a living, ever-changing art form, and that composers should have the ability to shape and control their music during a performance.
This reimagined concert experience replaces musicians' stands with laptops and scores that appear on their screens. The Blind Ear composer is transformed into a performer, sending the music to musicians and orchestrating each composition in real-time. By blending improvisation, electronics, and traditional composition, Blind Ear produces concerts that offer an ever-changing soundscape.
