The Vu Symposium on Experimental, Electronic, and Improvised Music was founded in 2016 by Katie Porter and Devin Maxwell with the stated goal of encouraging discourse, dialogue, and critical evaluation of the state of EEI Music through performances, paper presentations, lecture recitals, or demonstrations.  The first Vu Symposium was held on July 5-7, 2016 at the Park City Library in Park City, Utah and featured work by more than forty participants.  Vu 2 took a different approach.  Katie Porter curated and selected sixty four composers whose works were featured in a a day-long concert of fixed-media pieces on July 18, 2017.  The call for Vu 3 will open soon, once dates have been reserved and a selection committee has been established.  Vu 3 will be chaired by Devin Maxwell.

This site is solely dedicated to hosting conference proceedings from each Vu Symposium.  Our first installment of the proceedings can be downloaded here:
