The Digital Media Studies Program at the University of Denver just opened their their fantastic new HyperCube studio performance space. I had the honor and pleasure to appear as guest performer for the open house. In attendance were staff, students and guests.
This was a “lights up” performance and talk and the theme of my performance and presentation was spatial controllerism with Ableton Live, Percussa AudioCubes, and Moog Etherwave Theremin. To illustrate concepts, I played songs from my album “I Hear Your Signals” including “First Orbit” , “Control Zone”. I also played the song “Celebration and Voices” illustrating matrix controllerism with the Novation Launchpad.
It was a fantastic experience as the performance went well, the new space is awesome, and the crowd was enthusiastic and asked a lot of great questions about the art, technology, methodology, and technique.
Afterwards, I invited some students to take the AudioCubes for a spin. As always there was a lot of curiosity about the Theremin as well.
Many thanks to Trace Reddell, Ph.D. Director, Digital Media Studies and Darwin Grosse for the invite and for encouraging interaction and collaboration between academia and the larger community of electronic music artists. What a way to kick off my 2011 with this as my first performance!
