An Evening of Digital Music...
Archer Gallery opens its doors for an exciting multi-media, single-day event in collaboration with the Clark College Art Department and Washington State University Vancouverís Digital Technology & Culture Program. An Evening of Digital Music, Interactive Dance U& Electronic Literature in Live Performance, brings Steve Gibson, a Canadian media artist, composer, and theorist, with Dene Grigar, Justin Love, and Jeannette Altman, to the Archer Gallery for an interactive, multimedia event featuring three works of sound, music, light, and motion-tracking technology.
Gibsonís Virtual DJ is a sound and light performance piece that combines motion-activated electronic music, dance, virtual reality & robotics. Developed in 2001, it has been performed in Switzerland, Canada, the US, the UK and Sweden. Premiering after Gibsonís performance is Grigar and Altmanís The Rhapsody Room, a work that experiments with movement, language and live digital poetry. The final work of the evening, Justin Love and Gibsonís live dance set, VJ/DJ, aims at getting the audience on its feet and moving.
