TI:ME Turns 20 in 2015
At the TI:ME/TMEA conference in February, 2015, we will be celebrating TI:ME’s 20th anniversary. It doesn’t seem possible, but 20 years have passed since the idea of TI:ME was first conceived at Villanova University in a lunch meeting with John Dunphy (former TI:ME Exec. Director), George Pinchock, and Tom Rudolph (Exec. Committee Chair and former President). With the help of the late Mike Kovins, Tom Rudolph and John Dunphy traveled to NAMM in 1996 and 1997 and presented a proposal for funding the organization. NAMM did fund the organization and the first official meeting of TI:ME took place in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania in 1997. The first TI:ME conference took place in Pennsylvania in 1999. And, the rest, as they say, is history.In order to celebrate the 20th anniversary, there are five special TI:ME at 20 sessions planned for the 2015 TMEA/TI:ME Conference.  These

Commercial Member Spotlight on BEAMZ!
“Bang! Zap!” were the words coming from my students' smiling mouths as they ran their fingers along the lights emitting from the Beamz controller in front of them, interacting with the samples in the application and creating music with just a wave of their hands. Making music by manipulating a beam of light is not an everyday experience for a normal person. Beamz Interactive was started by Arizona songwriter and musician Jerry Riopelle. His vision to play music with light was how the latest midi laser controller from Beamz got made into reality. Being ahead of its time, Jerry waited 5 years for the technology to mature while he worked on the prototype before finally creating the Beamz Interactive company and putting the its first controller into mass production for the public. Since its first production run, Beamz controllers have been in the hands of special education teachers,
