“…it’s just plain cool to watch. Highly recommended.” – Jeremy Barker (Culturebot)

Over two nights, MAY 4 and 5 ROULETTE will present two radically different aspects of Toni Dove’s Spectropia. A sci-fi hybrid with themes of time travel, telepathy, and elements of film noir, Spectropia features live VJs orchestrating onscreen characters through a mix of film, performance, and a system of motion sensing that serves as a cinematic instrument.

Classical Music Meets Cyberspace at Sydney Opera House [au Sydney]

r737846_6007116.jpgAustralian Broadcasting Corporation :: Broadcast: 21/03/2011 :: More than one hundred musicians from thirty-three countries spent the past week at the Sydney Opera House for a unique multi-media event which has allowed their music to instantly go worldwide via YouTube. As Rebecca Bailie reports it was the perfect marriage of classical music and cyberspace – the participants had to audition online, the spectacle was uploaded and streamed direct onto mobile phones and those lucky enough to be inside the concert hall were tweeting direct from their seats.

Live Stage: Eng and Chatham [us NYC]

eng.jpgRhys Chatham with Kevin Jay and David Sims team up with Angie Eng for a multimedia concert :: October 15 and 16, 2010; 8 p.m. :: The Kitchen, 512 West 19th Street, New York, NY.

Paris-based musician and composer Rhys Chatham — the beloved first music curator of The Kitchen in the 1970s — has reached legendary status in experimental music circles, best-known most recently for high profile productions of his rugged noise symphonies written for hundreds of guitars. Media artist Angie Eng and Chatham team up for this live multi-media concert, with drummer Kevin Shea and electric bassist David Sims joining on stage. Playing both guitar and trumpet, Chatham deploys extended playing techniques inherited from the glory days of free jazz (Don Cherry, Bill Dixon, Jac Berrocal…) as well as leaders of the minimalist movement (Tony Conrad, Jon Hassell, La Monte Young…) of which he is one of the successors, arriving at a mix that ebulliently exits from his various horns and axes while simultaneously going through stomp boxes and electronic devices.

Live Stage: Pamela Z: Baggage Allowance [us San Francisco]

pz-baggage2-oliveiro-med.jpgPamela Z: Baggage Allowance :: May 20-22, 2010; 8:00 pm + May 23; 3:00 pm :: z space @ THEATER ARTAUD, 450 Alabama Street, San Francisco, CA.

In this sonically and visually layered multi-media performance work, Pamela Z explores baggage in all its literal and metaphorical permutations. Through performance with voice, electronics, interactive video, and sculptural objects, Baggage Allowance scans and inventories the belongings (and memories) we all cart around examining baggage as both impediment and treasure. Drawing from Ms. Z’s extensive traveling and cartage experiences, text from found sources, and interviews with travelers who speak poetically about their memories of flying, train travel, and their numerous baggage-related stories, the work will features episodes that touch upon the ball-and-chain-ness of dragging one’s things all over the world.

cardif.jpg[Image: “The Carnie”. Photo by Luhring Augustine] Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller :: until May 21, 2010 :: Luhring Augustine , 531 West 24th Street, New York, NY.

Luhring Augustine presents an exhibition of new work by the collaborative team Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller. This marks Cardiff and Miller’s third solo exhibition at the gallery. Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller are internationally recognized for their immersive multimedia works. Incorporating dramatic audio tracks into their visually striking installations, the artists create engaging and transcendent multisensory experiences which draw the viewer into ambiguous and unsettling narratives. Their works address grand themes such as time, voyeurism, dreams, and mystery. Providing only fragments of information, the completion of the storylines, images and thoughts are left to be formed in the minds of the individual viewers.
