Artist Talk: Send + Receive and Video Pool Media Arts Centre
Date / time: Sunday October, 7 2pm
Location: The Output
Over the course of an hour-long presentation, Keith Fullerton Whitman will discuss the challenges one must face when approaching electronic instrumentation in an orchestral manner. His “Redactions” and “Generators” setups will be on hand, and the choices made while designing and implementing their specific topologies over the course of a decade will be demonstrated. While a familiarity with experimental electronic music and analogue synthesizers will be helpful, the talk will center on a broader discussion about how and why to implement chance and improvisational concepts within rigid compositional frameworks, and how to delineate risk and humanistic performance tendencies to simple algorithmic systems.
The Output is located on the 2nd flr of the Artspace Building and is wheelchair accessible from the King st doors.
