Kutztown University hosts Dr. Joo Won Park, a modern composer and professor of
computer music and audio technology from the Community College of Philadelphia,
for a Computer Music Seminar in the Grim Planetarium on Wednesday, Sept. 5, from
6-8 p.m. The event will feature an original 30 minute performance by computer
science professor, Dr. Dale Parson, and his KU students as well as a 90 minute
performance by Dr. Park and students from the Community College of Philadelphia.
Both performances will feature video art that will be projected onto the
planetarium dome. This event is free and open to the public.
Dr. Park performs with toys, kitchenware, vegetables, umbrellas, and other
non-musical items by digitally processing the sounds they make. He gets
inspiration from listening to swamps, city noises, his young son, and other
sounds that surround him. A recent composition performed with Lego blocks is on
Evacuation Drills - The mandatory, semi-annual emergency evacuation drills for
the academic buildings will be conducted (weather permitting) during the next
two weeks. These drills are conducted within the first ten days of each semester
to minimize the possibility of disrupting tests, quizzes, projects or
experiments. The Office of Environmental Health and Safety and Public Safety
appreciate the swift, orderly participation of all building occupants whenever
the evacuation alarm is activated. A good habit to develop is to close all
windows and doors upon exiting your work space or classroom, and to stand clear
of the exits and roadways to facilitate smoother egress and emergency responder
access that may be necessary. To review the building evacuation procedures
