The IEA is pleased to present Sine Qua Non, an improvisational performance between Brett Sroka and Jeremiah Cymerman, a clarinetist who will be accompanying Sroka for this performance.
Developed by Sroka at the Institute for Electronic Arts and the Vilnius Academy of Art – Nida Art Colony in Lithuania, Sine Qua Non is an improvisational dialog between a musician and Sroka. Cymerman’s performance will be sampled and processed live by Sroka, becoming his own accompaniment, continuing through electronic abstraction and acoustic response. As the performance concludes the sampled fragments slowly take over, and continue to evolve through generative processing.
Join us April 1st, 2015 in the Robert C. Turner Gallery at 7:30 pm for the performance and discussion of the work. The piece will continue as an installation in the Immersive Gallery until April 4th, open during normal gallery hours.
More information and samples of this performance be found on Sroka’s website: http://www.brettsroka.com/sqn/
Special thanks to the Robert C. Turner Gallery staff and technicians. This event is free and open to the public.
This project is made possible in part with public funds from NYSCA’s’ Electronic Media and Film Presentation Funds grant program, administered by The ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes.
