While I regret that I couldn't make a timely invitation to the event, I should at least add a post-script to my first live performance of 2015.
Together with long-term collaborator Norman Long in Chicago, I performed real-time electronics manipulation via a Skype link to the BOLT Gallery in Chicago where Norm is currently artist in residence. The combination of Norm's location recordings and my modular synthesis made for, IMHO, an engaging journey into the world of notional or imaginary landscapes.
I am happily surprised at reports of how seamless the live session seemed despite all the potential for connections to go bad or for there to be some awkwardness resulting from latency and inability to immediately change course. This is a format that I think I will be experimenting with more in the future, as it provides me the opportunity to test how well my ideas hold up in a "no safety net" environment (one of the main attractions to live performance for me, aside from the ability to enjoy playback at intense levels of sound pressure.) And, of course, it does offer an alternative to gigs requiring trans-oceanic travel.
I do, of course, recommend further investigation of Norm's solo works (the link above will help in getting that investigation started.) Regardless of how thorough the major arts papers / magazines may portray their coverage as being, there are still many, many insightful multi-disciplinary artists out there worthy of being placed in the "first division" of public recognition (paradoxically, the most interesting creators are often those who don't court public recognition in the first place.) Anyway, I do feel Norm's work to be as compelling as that of any sonically-minded artists out there, and invite you to give it a look and listen.
At least part of this performance was recorded, so hopefully it will be made available via my Soundcloud pages in the days to come.
UPDATE! An excerpt of the duo performance is now available:
