An evening of performances by three musician/video duos. Bobby Previte's manic drums, played in real time with no loops or laptops, match VJ veteran Benton-C painting with light. Ben Neill will play his hybrid electro-acoustic 'mutant trumpet' in the liminal spaces created by video artist Bill Jones' conjunction of performance and installation art.
And composer Dorit Chrysler's Theremin will join with media artist c.h.i.a.k.i.(chiaki watanabe) on muxology v.2, a media project that combines electro-acoustic sound with kinetic images. As if that weren't enough, a special fourth-set encore will place all six artists onstage in a multi-media super jam.
