Call for auditions/jam session 1/19

For laptop ensemble (Music 499, Spring 2007) I would like to hold auditions for anyone interested. Name of the ensemble, anyone? Guy Garnett and I will be co-instructors for the course.

- First week of class, Friday, January 19
- Siebel room 3113 (Guy Garnett's lab)

We will supply mics, speakers and video projectors; we have computers, but if you can bring your own computers/interfaces that will help.

As part of your audition, bring music that is interactive in some way; it should not be only a fixed-media piece.

- If using Max or Pd, try to use OSC in your patch so you can receive input from another computer; in your audition we will ask you to respond to external input as part of your performance (a jam session).

Live instrumentalists and singers are welcome; in the audition you will be asked either to perform a work of new music (not standard rep), or improvise, interacting with live electronics. Experience with microphones and amplification will help.

DJ's and VJ's also welcome; for your audition please be prepared to perform for 5-7 minutes.
