NXNE Art (Performance)
Admission - $5
This performance takes place inside the Elastic Planets multichannel sound field and deals with similar source materials and processes. The difference is that in the performance decisions about event types and timings are made by us, in the installation these decisions are made by the generating machine. Instant Places is Ian Birse & Laura Kavanaugh Through the 1990's Ian Birse made performances for altered guitars, spoken words, and analog video. He has been making tools for virtual visual sonics since the turn of the century. Laura Kavanaugh is an improvisor who works between music, noise, light, and the shapes of things. She was active in interdisciplinary circles in Edmonton and Calgary, making performance works for samplers, overhead projectors, piano and voice, before taking Instant Places on the road with Ian for five years.
