PIXILERATIONS [v.6]
Fall 2009 Concert Schedule

PIXILERATED: CONCERT PERFORMANCES I
Friday, Sept. 25, 8pm, Free
URI Shepard Auditorium, 80 Washington St. [map]

Underneath the sheer wizardry of this concert series is an undercurrent of
cross-cultural, old-vs.-new-media inquiry, such as Matthew Peters-Warne who
plays a gourd-based digital controller to transform Portuguese and Umbundu
languages into music. Also: Todd Winkler's immersive audio/video
environment, Kristen Volness, (laptop and string quartet); Peter Bussigel
(in a shivers-inducing audio journey); Alex Dupuis (guitar and electronics);
bedtime stories (with video) from Lucky Leone; Alex Kruckman in an
audio-visual feedback loop; and Ed Osborn creates an "audio microworld" with
live electronics and table-top guitar.

Featuring:
Todd Winkler (choreography for dancer and interactive video projection)
Matthew Peters Warne
Peter Bussigel
