About Juilliard’s Center for Innovation in the Arts

The Center for Innovation in the Arts at Juilliard, (formerly the Music Technology Center), was created in 1993 to provide students with the opportunity to use technology in the creation and performance of new works. Since then the program has expanded to include classes in music production, film scoring, and performance technology.

In 2009, the Music Technology Center moved to a new, state-of-the-art facility that includes a record and mix suite to support music production activities and a digital playroom with interactive performance technology. The Center’s performance activities take place in the Rosemary and Meredith Willson Theater, which was designed with Beyond the Machine events in mind, and features a variety of interactive audio, lighting and computer systems. In 2012 the Music Technology Center was renamed the Center for Innovation in the Arts to reflect the growing opportunities for students in all divisions to collaborate on innovative projects. Together with the Willson Theater, the Center is the home for interdisciplinary (InterArts) and technology-driven activities at Juilliard.

Beyond the Machine is a multimedia performance environment offering young musicians, actors, and dancers the opportunity to bring their creative ideas to life with new technology. Begun in 2001 as a festival of interdisciplinary and multimedia art, Beyond the Machine’s biannual performance programs feature collaborations with creative artists from around the world who share an interest in new media and interdisciplinary work. Using innovative performance technology, the programs allow artists to expand the range of their instruments, control audio and visual elements with electronic tools, shape video and projection design in real time, and interact with artists and computers around the world via the web.
