Tonight my workshop peers and I will be performing our works-in-progress at Diapason Gallery, the results of our five weeks developing our ideas about video composition, notation and performance thereof.
The VCW Performance
$7 suggested donation
The VCW Performance is a show of live video pieces created as part of the Video Composition Workshop.
The Video Composition Workshop is dedicated to writing performative video pieces. It explores how artists approach their compositions and how they notate the scores from which the videoists perform.
This show presents the completed compositions, works-in-progress, and experiments of six videoists and musicians resulting from the first six-week salon. Pieces include video paired with acoustic instruments, analog electronics, and digital audio. The evening will end with the VCW composers discussing their various approaches. (We’re as wary as you are of endless artist discussions. We’ll stay focused and concise.)
Live video has made some great advances in the past years. Technological capabilities and popular awareness are making it more integral to contemporary performances. VCW is happy to present 6 approaches to working with video as a dynamic, performative art.
