SPLICE Institute is a weeklong, intensive program for performers and composers to experience, explore, interpret, and create music for instruments and electronics. The 2018 Institute will take place June 24–30 at the Western Michigan University School of Music in Kalamazoo, MI. 

The 2018 SPLICE Institute theme is improvisation. Faculty-led workshops exploring improvisation with acoustic and electronic forces will culminate in performances at the end of the week.

Participants are offered a variety of activities to suit their interests and electronic music experience. Each day is filled with workshops, masterclasses, collaborations, and lectures, concluding with a concert curated and performed by faculty members. 

Composer and Performer Participants selected for a concert collaboration will have the opportunity to collaborate and create a new work to premiere at the Institute. Community building and collaboration form the core of SPLICE’s mission and activities. Participants become part of a community that continues to grow and develop beyond the Institute.
