This Saturday Seth Warren-Crow and I are performing at the Borg Ward Collective. It will be a night of electronic music, live video, tabla improvisation, and more. Seth and I will be joined by Trees Fall, the Milwaukee electronic music and video gurus. It should be a fantastic evening! The show starts at 8:00.
On Saturday April 21st the Milwaukee Laptop Orchestra (MiLO) will performed during the Kenilworth Open Studios, a collection of exhibitions from all areas of the Peck School of the Arts. MiLO played a live realization of Ligeti’s Artikulation, my structured improvisation Collision, and electro-acoustic improvisations.
MiLO is: Chris Burns, David Collins, Nolan Dargiewicz, Adam Murphy, Elliot Patros, Kevin Schlei, Steve Schlei, Amanda Schoofs, Sebastian Valenzuela.
The conference was fantastic – lots of creative energy and some truly inspired projects and research. As for my presentation, it went quite well. I got some very nice feedback from other presenters and conference attendees about the multi-point instruments.
Once the paper publication goes online I will link to it from here. There are plenty of clever works that are worth mentioning. In the meantime, check out the flickr photostream for an idea of the conference atmosphere.
The night was great – lots of fantastic art pieces and a fun atmosphere. Part of the fun was watching people figure out the interactive element to the piece (or, in most cases, not figure it out).
Here are some pictures I found of our installation. They are from a JS Online blog, the MAM After Dark site, and the Milwaukee After Dark photostream on Flickr. Click on the image to go to the gallery.
Tomorrow, Friday March 12, the Milwaukee Art Museum is hosting one of its ‘After Dark’ exhibitions. I’ll be there presenting a work with MIAD student Leticia Figueroa as part of MIAD’s ‘Here and Now’ version of ‘Street Seen.’ We put together an altered stop sign – animated, interactive, a bit pushy, but quirky and fun. There are about a dozen other MIAD student / Milwaukee artist pairs that have been working on pieces of their own for the show. It should be a fun night!
