Improvised Electronics Round Robin

The Round Robin serves as a platform for tool builders and people experimenting with art and technology performance to workshop their projects. Performers are to play as solo instrumentalists with either audio, video, or audiovisual performance systems. Solo electronics performers set up in a circle and play short 10 minute interlocking sets in a clockwise fashion. The Round Robin strives to maintain an open atmosphere dedicated to inventive performability and signal processing systems.

Project Name: Graphic Ships
Short Project Description
Graphic Ships is a live audio/visual event, built from interactions between audience and performers. Sound artists and musicians perform from an ever changing graphic score generated by data from the users.
Remote artists participate via telecommunication technology, the graphic score serving to connect them with the venue over global distances. The interactive visuals become a vehicle, a means to transport creativity between individuals.

Project Name:Thinspace
Short Project Description: The screen is a snow globe and we're inside. Panoramic images captured with mobile phones provide a 360 degree perspective of a place. Haphazard gestures coalesce to form rhythm. Virtual reality is animated with pinches, zooms and swipes, plucked and played.

Laura Plana Gracia

Project Name: median ages
LIVE A/V performance or installation: OpenSource Audio Works, DIY synthesizers, video loop projections. It is influenced by theories of postmodernism, postcolonialism, relies in the aesthetics of noise, it is supported by cybernetics and the relations between Art, Science and Technology. It is influenced by Political Art, Activism, Hacktivism, Human Rights and Policies of Heritage. It offers the possibility to transform reality into a more humanitarian, more ethical and balanced environment. The piece haunts a visceral soundscape in a DIY noise composition. It is an experiential environment that attempts to reconfigure the dictatorships with photojournalism and expanded video art installation with D.I.Y. Synthesizers: Oscillator with Potentiometers, capacitors, resistors and 555 chip, Arduino potentiometer and Synthrotek. Control 9V input and transform it into sound.

Reid Bingham

Project Name: Wet Electron
Short Project Description: Utilizing a handmade sampler and hacked electronics, Wet Electron creates looping soundscapes that crumble and morph into grey areas between noise, drone, and Casio pop. For this event he will 'play a computer' by live sampling its electromagnetic frequencies into a four track with a looping cassette tape, approximating as best he can with limited technical means, what he thinks Skrillex sounds like.
