Chip Davis Visit

Perhaps the icing on the cake of our Electronic Chamber Music show Techno In Space in our magical new Chip Davis Technology Studio was the fact that Chip Davis himself came to both of our shows! It was a pleasure and honor to get to know such a wonderful man and brilliant mind. And he gave us a shout-out on the Mannheim Steamroller website:!

Chip Davis

In just 6 months, the Davis Technology Studio has already had profound impact on what we do, with a 16.2 channel (soon to become 32.2) immersive speaker with flexible networked audio with Dante and Rednet. Thanks Chip!

Anagram Norton – Shine

Check out Shine, by Michael McCrindle, a.k.a. Anagram Norton. The EP was his Performing Arts Technology Senior Thesis project, and as his advisor, I’d like to think I’m the executive producer of sorts.


Check out Sang Lee’s awesome take on the classic Simon game for my PAT 451/551 Interactive Media Design class. Can’t wait to see what else these guys and gals have in store!

Performances in Colombia

As a part of the Videosónica festival held in conjunction with the Diseño+ conference, I performed in a telematic concert of electroacoustic music on October 26, 2012. The concert featured performers in Cali and at Stanford University in California, joined by Stephen Rush’s Digital Music Ensemble in Ann Arbor. Although separated geographically, the performers were able to play together, supported by experimental technologies to deliver high-quality digital audio at low latency over dedicated research networks. This 3-way telematic concert was a first for Colombia as well as the University of Michigan.

The following night, I closed the festival performing a new realization of John Cage’s Rozart Mix in honor of the composer’s centennial. My gracious host Daniel Gomez took me on an adventure to find junk boomboxes and old cassette tapes to use as material for the performance.
