Diana Lynn VanderMeulen & Stefana Fratila

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION: For the culmination of Cosmos in Flux, (Lights on the Exchange) Diana Lynn VanderMeulen joins with sonic collaborator Stefana Fratila for a live hardware, improvisational performance derived from her album I want to leave this Earth behind. Together, they work to engage audiences in an immersive exercise imagining sci-fantastical atmospheres with a specific focus on alternate planetary realities.

Kristen Roos

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION: Kristen Roos’ multi-media performance speaks to the history of the computer as a creative tool, both visually and sonically. His Universal Synthesizer Interface project reflects this approach, through music that explores the limitations of vintage algorithmic MIDI sequencing software from the 1980s and ’90s. The visual element of his performance uses animation Kristen has created with vintage paint and animation software, and mixed live using video synthesis techniques.
