Oh dear, I'm so late. It's already been a month since the festival, which was a very good one on the whole. I wasn't very happy about the rain but I could cope. When it came to CCTV music, it was all quite messy. There was a misunderstanding already at the booking, I think, because we thought that the installation was supposed to be running throughout the entire festival. We arrived already on Wednesday (festival starts on Thursday) to hang our stuff, and we did. When it was all done, it turned… Continue

Just had to comment on this moving experience. As a grant writer, community and arts activist for several decades, Senator Kennedy was a reliable and tireless advocate for arts and MANY social causes. He helped with my Community Foundation project while I was in grad school - part of which was to fund arts education. I shall not forget - and hope that none of you do, either. Maybe our prayers for universal healthcare will manifest.…

I am artistic director and choreographer for Ballet Pixelle (balletpixelle.org) and am working to explore the intersection of physical and virtual dance. I welcome any and all discussions. We are looking at avatars interacting with real dancers. We are "dancing into the digital future..." Does anyone have any experience with this?
Also, does anyone have/use a low-cost motion capture system?

I am interested in controlling sound. So It was essential that I had to try max/msp. I am a latecomer to technology, yet i have always held it in high regard: as the sensible valuable of it's own intelligence, and of the influence that it has flecked and dazzled within the capable framework of the 21st century artist. It was only three years ago when I discovered the computerized Pro Tools. From there I explored many different softwares such as Reaktor, Reason , Renoise and Ableton Live, and… Continue

Latest "Dancing in the Light" multi-media performance was held at Berklee College of Music on July 27th, 2009. Randy Felts, Ricardo Monzon and Lisa Leake swirled, swooned and side-winded inter-kinetic energy on stage, as Randy twisted things up a bit through the fusion of his "synthophone" with melodies, harmonies, multi-percussion, off-beats and sound bites, plus Lisa Leake's gyrations (from numerous dance genre). Visual art by local artists was mashed into the large screen overhang, so that… Continue
