David Liptak is currently a composition faculty member at the Eastman School of Music. Liptak will be in residence for three days at USF to work with student ensembles, composers, and give a lecture on his own music. His works will be performed by members of the USF New-Music Consortium, the USF Percussion Ensemble directed by Robert McCormick, and USF faculty pianist Eunmi Ko.

The 2015 Call for Scores received an overwhelming response from composers around the world, with over 200 submissions from 36 countries. One work was selected in each category of Acoustic and Electronic Music. The finalists were Gabriel Bolaños (USA/Nicaragua) in the acoustic category and Daniel Blinkhorn (Sydney, Australia) in the electronic category.
