DiD 080419 DISIS event
Jan 8th, 2009, 11:39am
On April 19, 2008 DISIS third event was held offering tons of premieres and a new format. Taking place in the Performance Arts Building (a run-down black box theater with plenty of character), the program featured Sue Ott Rowlands, Jay Crone, Dane Webster, Ann Kilkelly, Carol Burch-Brown, and obviously myself, as well as works from DISIS students Matt Barbee, David Cuffee III, and Vladimir Smirnov.
This was in my opinion by far the most successful DISIS event so far with pieces seamlessly eliding, providing for roughly 90 minutes of continuous multimedia experience. The program also included 4 performances (3 beingpremieres), some of which were realized in collaboration with aforesaid friends and Colleagues:
  • derelicts of time for trombone, computer, and visuals (commissioned by Jay Crone)
  • iteration 13 for computer, aural pencil (we lovingly refer to as buck-o-five), tap dancer, and camera (devised in collaboration with Carol Burch-Brown and Ann Kilkelly)
  • air.crane.moo.latte.runway for actor and computer, including series of video vignettes (based on an excerpt from Shakespeare's MacBeth and realized in collaboration with Sue Ott Rowlands and Carol Burch-Brown)
  • with delicate risk audio-visual piece produced in collaboration with Dane Webster

The event has received an overwhelmingly positive feedback and I had a great amount of fun working on the pieces. One of the notable moments during the development of the air.crane.moo.latte.runway piece included recording a performance of MacBeth excerpt next to the wingtip of a jet airplane with engines running (courtesy of VT Hokiebird) which actually went exceptionally well!
