Composer Judith Shatin will be joined by George Manahan and members of the orchestra in a demonstration of Kinect, a motion sensing input device for computer controlled electronics. This will be demonstrated musically through a sketch entitled Red Moon of how this technology will be used for her ACO commission Black Moon, to be premiered in our October 28, 2016 concert at Zankel Hall (Carnegie Hall). Also, Judith’s For The Birds for amplified cello and electronics with birdsong from the Yellowstone region will be performed.
Workshop and performance starting at 2:00pm, followed by a hands-on demonstration for audience members
Tickets are free, but space is limited!
CoLABoratory, is the world’s only “R & D” lab for experimental new music. CoLABoratory is a high tech incubator where composers bring fantastic new ideas to ACO that are workshopped, refined and developed into new works over the course of a season, before they are premiered by ACO at Carnegie Hall.
Watch Judith test the Kinect for her earlier piece Being In Time
