Yotam Mann

Emerging Fields, 2016

While studying music at UC Berkeley, Yotam Mann discovered the Center for New Music and Audio Technologies (CNMAT), which opened his eyes to a new way of making music with technology that eventually inspired him to earn a second degree in Computer Science. Mann’s own music began to reflect the techniques and compositional ideas that he was exposed to, but with an aesthetic that was decidedly more pop than New Music. As soon as it became technologically feasible, he began working exclusively within the browser because of its interactive affordances and ability to reach wider audiences than any other platform. Now based in New York, Mann continues to work at the intersection of music and technology by way of the art and start-up scene. He creates interactive musical experiences for apps, websites and installations. He was part of the inaugural class at NEW INC and is an adjunct professor at ITP, NYU Tisch.
