Overlap + SF Cinematheque - Dec 4 2009

OVERLAP and SF CINEMATHEQUE at YERBA BUEN

This friday, December 4th, Overlap showcases it’s first collaboration with the SF Cinematheque, and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, with two awesome audio-visual performers, Elise Baldwin & Kadet Kuhne.

SF Cinematheque and Overlap.org Present :
Holding Patterns & Collective Memories: Elise Baldwin & Kadet Kuhne at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.

Friday, December 4, 7:30PM
Yerba Buena Center for the Arts
701 Mission Street, San Francisco

Tickets: members: $6 / non-members: $10
Advanced tickets: 415-978-ARTS

Drawing from each artist’s extensive work in installation and music composition, the live audio/video performances of Elise Baldwin and Kadet Kuhne create unique cinematic experiences through the application of real-time compositional techniques. With an interest in the transmitted electronic signal (via sensors, circuitry and neurons), Kuhne uses the medium to explore themes of communication, control and confinement in her works “Fight or Flight” and “Infinite Delay”. Equally engaged with innovative technology, Elise Baldwin’s works — Theatre of Plants and The Body Farm — consider the relationships between the natural world and the evolution of technology and themes of collective memory and history. Also screening: And the Sun Flowers by Mary Helena Clark and Paradise Falls, New Mexico by Christina Battle. (Steve Polta)

Overlap + swissnex + You collab at QB1 Robot premiere

Overlap is pleased to announce a new collaboration with swissnex San Francisco and YOU.

On April 24th swissnex is unveiling the QB1, a robot that alters the fundamentals of human-machine interaction. To celebrate the occasion, and kick-off a new relationship with swissnex, I will be dj’ing two short sets, and the Overlap.org max/msp freaks (= me, louis, barry) will be unveiling our own generative system of music. The goal is to fill the event space with beautiful ambient sounds via systems of constrained indeterminacy. This system will process and morph and resynthesize MIDI files that are submitted to Overlap.org by YOU (yay!).

If you’d like to submit, here are the guidelines for Overlap Music Bot submissions:

  1. All MIDI files must be in the key of Amaj, D#maj, or F#minor.
  2. Submission must be made through overlap.org. > sign-in and make a post with a link to your MIDI file(s).
  3. No limit to the # of files you wish to submit.
  4. Credits to all artists involved will be announced at the event and follow-up posts about the QB1 event (more below).
