The MICE Computer Orchestra employs MICEtro, a new hardware/software system created by Matthew Burtner’s Interactive Media Research Group (IMRG) with major contributions by members Scott Barton, Timothy Dalbey, Steve Kemper, Jason Johnson, Irwin Reyes and Troy Rogers. MICEtro uses techniques of emergence, perturbation, robotics and LAN technology to create technosonic music from massive data generation. This momentous first, full-scale performance is optimized for 500 computers.

MICE (the Mobile Interactive Computer Ensemble) was formed at UVA in 2001 by Burtner to explore multi-performer interactive music systems. In 2008, with support of T+TI Grant and Fellowship, the group expanded into an orchestral scale in the context of the Technosonics Digital Sound Art Composition class.
