The Rutgers–Camden center for the arts and the rutgers electro-acoustic lab present:
Electric Café – Spring 2017
The Electric Café is back and better than ever with 3 all new performances this semester. These live performances bring together a unique blend of electronic music, interactivity, and performance art to give audiences a show they won’t soon forget!
All performances are free and open to the public.
Performances are held on Mondays at 12:30pm in the Black Box Studio.
Joo Won Park – February 27th
Performing with Technology in the 21st Century – with Special guests: Adam Vidiksis, Vibraphone and BEEP Ensemble (Temple University.)
Today’s contemporary electronic music performance is similar to that of traditional performance: there is no need for prerecorded sounds, and both the audience and performers cannot predict the exact interaction or outcome. In this performance, Joo Won Park will present original electroacoustic music that is best experienced in a concert setting due to its algorithmic and interactive nature.
Robin Cox – March 20th
Performing works for violin and electronics from his new album “Ghost of Time.”
l’Artiste ordinaire – April 17th
“Photon Ecstasy (HD 7924)”
Photon Ecstasy is an ongoing performance project by the duo l’Artiste ordinaire (l’Ao)— composer-performers Melissa Grey & David Morneau—that embraces music, sound, interactive light, and science fiction. It is an expansion of the mythology created by Dan Rose in his artist book, The DNA-Photon Project, which tells the story of a top-secret government project that converted the DNA of a young woman into photons.
