The Center for Experimental Music & Intermedia (CEMI) is an interdisciplinary center focused on music and arts technologies, housed within the Division of Composition Studies. CEMI provides an environment for research, education, and a busy schedule of public performances. CEMI fosters integration of electroacoustic music, live performance, video/film, plastic arts, and theater. Since its 1963 inception as UNT’s Electronic Music Center, CEMI has evolved into a unique creative environment, world-renowned for innovative works and musicians. CEMI’s four state-of-the-art studios and Merrill Ellis Intermedia Theater nurture the development of dozens of works each year, including music for live performance with interactive computer systems, multichannel surround audio compositions, film and video works, dance pieces with live video, and intermedia theatrical performances.

CEMI showcases the latest experimental music and intermedia from UNT and around the world in its annual series of concerts in the Merrill Ellis Intermedia Theater. Visiting composers-in-residence have studio access and technical assistance; CEMI regularly hosts internationally renowned artists and researchers in residencies that include public lectures, masterclasses, and concerts. CEMI has hosted the International Computer Music Conference in 1981, the SEAMUS National Conference 2000, and the Electric LaTex Festival 2007, among others. In 2005, CEMI was noted in Schools that Rock: The Rolling Stone College Guide, which named the UNT College of Music as one of the nation’s best music programs.
