Jaimie Hensley and Logan Henke, music technology students at Montana State University, have had electroacoustic compositions selected for the Electronic Music Midwest Festival to be held in October in Chicago.
Hensley and Henke’s compositions are part of the 66 works out of about 250 submissions selected by a jury for performance at the festival. Both works were composed as part of a second-semester freshman music technology course taught by Linda Antas, professor in the MSU School of Music.
After earning a master's degree in creative writing and working in the fine art business, Hensley is combining interests in music and video games to study audio design and composition scoring for games, film and other new media. Hensley is a native of Billings.
Henke, of Miles City, is a sophomore majoring in music technology and music education. He is also a member of the MSU Honors College. A third generation Bobcat, Henke has studied voice and piano classically for over six years and performs with vocal groups on a regular basis.
