The topic for the morning session will be computer music in the classroom, and afternoon instruction will emphasize electronic teaching and learning strategies.

At The University of Colorado-Boulder, Ewen teaches composition, music technology, sound, music tech pedagogy, and physical computing. He also directs the 64-Bit Composition Competition, serves on faculty of Reel Kids Theater Troupe, and works as the editorial assistant for Music Theory Online.

Ewen’s work has been performed across North America, Europe, Australia, and Asia by distinguished performers such as Greg Banaszak, Lina Bahn, and Bill Mooney. His installations have been seen in the Denver Museum of Art and the Roser Atlas Atrium at CU-Boulder. His compositions and orchestrations are published by Ken Dorn, Alphonse LeDuc, Music Minus One, Theodore Presser, and Ewen’s own Skinny Dip Publications.
