PORTLAND 2020: PSU's Sonic Arts and Music Production's Laptop Ensemble
Add to Calendar
ABOUT THIS EVENT:
Portland State University's Sonic Arts and Music Production's Laptop Ensemble will be live streaming several new compositions including Portland 2020, created in collaboration with PSU's School of Film Experimental Production. In addition to the group collaboration, individual filmmakers partnered with members of the ensemble to create original scores for their short films.
The Laptop Ensemble is an ensemble of humans, laptops, controllers, and speakers. Ensemble members both compose and perform in the ensemble, exploring computer-mediated instrument design, sound synthesis, programming, and live interactive performance. The Experimental Filmmakers work with archival found footage, 16mm direct animation, original live action digital and computer generated images to provide the visual elements of the program. The short films represent a range of approaches reflecting and responding to our present social and political conditions.
Streaming on our Twitch and YouTube channels starting at 12 noon:
