Levin, Jones & Hermanovic Talk at AMMI

Panel Discussion: Moving Image Performed with Software
Thursday, May 15 at the American Museum of the Moving Image
7:30 p.m.
Queens, New York

Through discussing their own work, artists and programmers Greg Hermanovic, Art Jones, and Golan Levin will provide an overview of audio-visual performance systems, its history, and future.

Hermanovic, co-founder of Derivative, Inc, will demonstrate Touch, a new real-time 3D graphics performance tool based on his Academy Award-winning digital compositing software, Houdini.

Levin will present an illustrated history of real-time moving image performance. His piece, Floccus, is featured in DigitalMedia and he recently orchestrated Dialtones: A Telesymphony, a concert performance comprised solely of the carefully choreographed ringing of the audience's cell phones.

Art Jones will present a mini-lecture on "The Fine Art of VJ-ing," with audio-visual accompaniment. His work often concerns the inter-relationships between popular music, visual culture, history, and power.

Tickets ($10 public / Free for members) can be purchased in advance by calling the Museum at 718-784-4520.

This event is part of Thursdays, an ongoing series of artist talks and performances, presented in conjunction with DigitalMedia, the Museum's highly acclaimed gallery space focused on creative, probing, and playful explorations of the digital moving image and software-based art.
