The New Music Alliance showcased two groups that are finding new ways to bridge the gap between contemporary music and modern audiences.

Kyle Brenders from Soundstreams presented his website and an iPad app called Soundmakers, which draws on hundreds of samples of classical music.

Ben Deitschi of Spectrum Music demonstrated an interactive sound installation and live performance called The Interface.
