The Montana State University Department of Music will present "Brain Candy," a free multimedia event at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, March 1, in Reynolds Recital Hall, Howard Hall, on the MSU campus.

"Brain Candy" features new video art and animation with electronic music, along with oboe performance by MSU professor Kristi McGarity.

"The concert will treat the audience to an assortment of addictively delightful electronic music, computer animation, and futuristic video art," McGarity said. The concert will include work by composers and video artists Bill Alves, Christopher Bailey, Jay Batzner and Carla Poindexter, Nick Bober and Stephen Lucas, Ben Broening, Chris Conrad, Brian Evans, and Mark Zaki. The concert will end with a grand finale performance of Russell Pinkston's virtuosic "Gobo" for oboe and electronic sounds.

Music will be presented with live sound diffusion and 5.1 surround through a multichannel speaker system. The concert is sponsored by the Music Technology program, home of the MSU's Bachelor of Arts in Music Technology.
