Improvised Electronics Round Robin: Dark Circuits II
8pm November 8, 2015
Culturehub 47 Great Jones St, 3rd Floor
New York, NY 10012
The Improvised Electronics Round Robin is a live audiovisual concert by tool builders, artists, and engineers. The performers will play short interlocking sets and then perform the Dark Circuits Light Orchestra score by electronic composer Hans Tammen.
Hans has been working with the Dark Circuits Concept for over 10 years. It’s a large ensemble that features performers using contemporary electronic instrument practices such as circuit bending, no-input mixers, laptops, turntablism, analogue circuitry, network sniffers, live coding and soldering, and more.
Presented by Culturehub and curated by the Fast Food Collective, this Round Robin will be featuring: Gocha Tsinadze, Sofy Yuditskaya, Josh Goldberg, Alex Nathanson, Jonas Bers, Eric Barry Drasin, James Cao, Tracy Song, and Phyllis Bulkin Lehrer.
Curated by Eric Barry Drasin
Using an RF Pickup, heart monitor as well as police/fire and nautical scanners Sofy Yuditskaya plays with private and personal em spectrums.

Description: Unity + VDMX + Processing + Vezér + C4d
Processing/Syphon/Coge basically I am doing audio visualization related with these three software.Real-time data visualization is the main topic I am doing researches right now. And the form is live performance.

Alex Nathanson is an artist, curator, and educator working in a wide range of media. His performances combine computer programming and handmade electro-mechanical instruments to create work that oscillates between experimental film and Saturday morning cartoons. He performs regularly with composer/ musician Dylan Neely as Fan Letters.
Phyllis Bulkin Lehrer
Max/jitter based interface that engages user interaction. A Mira module on an iPad will contain controls that variegate color ,motion and shape of 2D hand drawn abstract animation contained in a projection that is an animated 3d object whose parameters may also be accessed through the system..
The Luminous Surface

University Gallery & The Electronic Gallery
Fulton Hall 109 & TETC 317
The Luminous Surface includes 34 self-illuminating works by 40 Contemporary Artists working with Light, Sound & Video in physical space. Curator, David Linton has assembled a broad survey of works addressing the subject, object, and temporal processes of “the luminous” as they perceptually and cognitively intersect the representational planes of mediated human experience. Artists include: Benton C. Bainbridge, Jonas Bers, Naval Cassidy, Brian Chase, Maximus Clarke, Cürt Clönïngër, Daniel Conrad, Thomas Dexter, Eric Barry Drasin, Jeff Donaldson, R. Luke DuBois, Echodes: Angie Eng & Rhys Chatham, Bradley Eros, David First, Jason Scott Furr, Richard Garet, David Gladden, C. Tara Gladden, Andrea Haenggi, Kato Hideki, Brian Kane, Victoria Keddie, Adam Kendall, Scott Kiernan, Katherine Liberovskaya w/ Al Margolis, David Linton, Jeanne Liotta, LoVid, Matthew Ostrowski, Marie-Hélène Parant, Peter Rose, Stephen Schaum, Ursula Scherrer, Matthew Schlanger, Raphaele Shirley, Jeremy D. Slater, Phillip Stearns, Sara C. Sun, Walter Wright
Call For Participation: Improvised Electronics Round Robin, Nov 6 - 8
The Visual Composers Workshop will be running a 3 day workshop in November at Culturehub in NYC.
We’ll be workshopping and performing a collaborative score by Hans Tammen called the “Dark Circuits Light Orchestra.”
We’re looking for audiovisual performers, hackers, tinkerers, and weirdos to perform short interlocking sets using a custom audiovisual instrument.
It was super rad.
If you think that you’d like to participate, please send the following information to eric (dot) drasin (at) gmail (dot) com. Please put Round Robin Submission in the subject line.
Description: (like what type of system you are using)
The Improvised Electronics Round Robin serves as a platform for tool builders, artists and engineers to experiment in a performance based environment. Our focus is on custom instruments for the creation of real-time sound and visuals. The Round Robin strives to maintain an open atmosphere dedicated to inventive performability and signal processing systems.
Performers are to play as solo instrumentalists with either audio, video, or audiovisual performance systems. Performers set up in a circle and play short interlocking sets in a clockwise fashion. After the initial round, each iteration of the Round Robin will feature a different theme that will slightly alter the structure of the previous session. This includes the introduction of a specific set of rule based systems or guest composer’s score.
Past iterations have included traditional “rounds” of short interlocking sets and more expanded concepts such as “Audiovisual Speed Dating” and Hans Tammen’s “Dark Circuits Light Orchestra,” and the “Ecstatic Peace Circle.”

Performing Systems 2: Analog
8pm $10 Panoply Performance Lab
Jonas Bers Chris Balint + John Bowman
Eric Barry Drasin
Jeff Donaldson + Scott Sinclair
Curated by Eric Barry Drasin
This edition of Performing Systems seeks to explore practices in analog signal processing and hacked video equipment. We’ve assembled a tremendous lineup of Real time Video Artists who will present video scores with custom hardware and hacked systems.
Performing Systems is a series investigating contemporary practices in New Cinema and Realtime Video Performance. We seek to exhibit work that falls at the intersection of technical systems, performance, score and improvisation. Artists will present Realtime Performative works up to 30 minutes for Single Channel Projection with Sound.
Through a broad survey of technologies and aesthetics, we seek to understand the language of Realtime that defines our historical moment of technology and art. In doing so we simultaneously seek to highlight and frame these emerging practices, creating a context for their exhibition that legitimizes as it establishes and expands its definition. This includes but is not limited to Generative Software systems, Custom Dataflow Processing Patches, Circuit Bent Instruments, Custom Circuits, or Modular Video Synthesizers.
