Description: The merging of virtual and real audio spaces through the proliferation of digital tools has dramatically impacted praxis for a number of artistic genres. This performance/lecture brings together musicians and dancers in an improvisational installation that explores the extension of live performance through digital processing. Featuring music, dance and video, the work will also deploy a number of digital performers, including programmed audio improvisers (in max), digital cameras, even an Ipod. The performers will discuss the installation and the broader impact that digital technologies have had on their own artistic practice.
