Gravity Pulling at Barking Legs Tonight

I’m playing at Barking Legs in Chattanooga tonight in an event co-hosted by the Shaking Ray Levi Society. I haven’t been there since 2001 with James Keepnews, so it’ll be great to return.

Sunday October 7 7:30pm
Barking Legs Theater
1307 Dodds Avenue
Chattanooga TN

Along with playing some solo music for banjo and electronics, I’ll be collaborating with dancers and improvisers on a piece with video similar to the image above. I created the video my modeling the behavior of particles interacting with gravity using Processing. After the concert will be a short demo of my sensor-augmented banjo.

One Last Workshop Before the Grocery Closes

SF Grocery

The Sonic Frontiers Workshop Series at The Grocery concludes this week. I will present an introduction to interactive electronic music including a live performance or two. Then workshop attendees will create a one-night-only audio installation in The Grocery gallery using the Cycling ’74 Max modular programming environment. The Grocery will be closing its doors at the end of the month, so this is one of the last chances to come experience an important hub for cultural life in the Tuscaloosa area.

Sonic Frontiers Workshop #6
Wednesday June 10 7pm
900 Main Avenue
Northport AL
Bring an instrument/noisemaker, or just come to listen. No previous experience is necessary. The Grocery gets hot in the summer, so dress appropriately.
