I had a wonderful time performing in a couple of concerts last week. These shows were the initail concerts of the New Media + Sound Art performance series, which is in turn part of the Time Light Sound at Emily Carr University of Art + Design. The NMSA series highlights the works of student and faculty from the NMSA program at ECU.
The Friday night included performances by NMSA faculty Peter Bussigel, Julie Andreyev and Caroline Park as Tiny Disasters, and myself as well as two performances by student enselmbles.
My work on Friday was a further debelpment of a piece created and first performed with Ava Grayson at Third Space's Sound Room. It is a performed audio-visual piece with visuals developed in Max7/Jitter, custom granular processing and noise instruments also made in Max7. For this iteration I have started to explore an idea I have to work with video reactive audio. In this case the luminosity of a slected portion of the screen controlled the noise instruments.
