IDEAS performance: Rocket’s Red Glare
Date: September 3rd, 2015
Location: Calit2 Auditorium, Atkinson Hall, UC San Diego
Host: Shahrokh Yadegari, Director, IDEAS
First (beta!) performance introducing the work I’ve been developing for past couple years. As I’ve still got the training wheels on, the event will be part concert performance, part research/software demo.
PIGS (Percussive Image Gestural System) – is a software/hardware visual instrument and a research framework for some new approaches to improvisational cinematic performance. Rocket’s Red Glare is a concert performance I’ve been developing with clarinetist / sound artist Curt Miller. An experiment in audiovisual improvisation, Rocket’s Red Glare is the first piece to use PIGS.
While PIGS is still in an early state, and I feel like a kid at her first piano recital, hopefully it’ll be the beginning of things to come. And Curt’s music is really great – so hope you can make it!
