November 24th – A new audiovisual piece presented by NAISA

On November 24th, New Adventures in Sound Art will be presenting a brand new audiovisual piece of mine.  I will be performing the music live using cello, mandola, mixer feedback, tuning reeds, percussion, and mixing some lo-fi pre-recorded sources in too.  While the music will be diffused in multichannel, there will also be a video piece playing, shot and edited by me. Below is a short preview using an excerpt of an improvisation from October 6th.

Also on the bill another audiovisual work, “Construction in Zhuangzi” by Ryo Ikeshiro.

Here is the information about the event:
