I make music with code. Sound that is alive, different every time and for every person. I believe interactivity gives listeners a deep engagement with music. I want to push music beyond the confines of the mp3, streaming service and headphones. I want new music and new ways of listening.
While studying jazz piano at UC Berkeley, Yotam Mann stumbled across the Center for New Music and Audio Technologies (CNMAT), which opened his eyes to a new way of making music with technology that eventually inspired him to earn a second degree in Computer Science. As soon as it became technologically feasible, he began working entirely in the browser because of the platforms openness, interactive affordances and ability to reach broad audiences. Now based in New York, Mann continues to work at the intersection of music and technology, creating interactive musical experiences in the form of apps, websites and installations. He was part of the inaugural class at NEW INC, adjunct professor at ITP, NYU Tisch, and 2016 Creative Capital Grantee in Emerging Fields.
I’m always looking for opportunities and collaborators doing something new and exciting with music. If this is you, please reach out; I’d love to talk.
