DISIS presents Digital iD Spring Event - Monday, May 5, 2014 - Moss Arts Center Cube
As part of the ICAT Day, VT Institute for Creativity, Arts and Technology (ICAT) and School of Performing Arts' Digital Interactive Sound and Intermedia Studio (DISIS) presents its Spring Showcase, a part of the "Digital iD" performance series featuring an evening of multisensory performances that fit no preexisting form or template. The event will feature the Kandinsky Trio and guest artist Chris McCormick, Virginia Tech faculty artists Ivica Ico Bukvic, Lee Heuermann, Eric Lyon, and Charles Nichols, Virginia Tech's Linux Laptop Orchestra (L2Ork), and students engaged in the DISIS and Cinema curricula. Also on the concert is a performance of Terry Riley's "In C," played telematically between musicians at Virginia Tech and Stanford University. Using JackTrip software, the two schools will stream audio across the continent, allowing the distributed musicians to perform together in real time. "Digital iD" offers an exploration of synergies among music, technology, arts, gesture, collaboration, interactivity, and ultimately community. The event is free and open to the public.
