This is an excerpt from "Multiplicities: An Inter-arts Telematic Performance" (October 25, 2008). The performers are in two different cities, linked via Internet2 connections::
1. At the VisArts Black Box at UC San Diego, CA:
Mark Dresser, bass
Billy Mintz, drums
Nancy Ostrovsky, painter
2. In the Calit2 Auditorium, UC Irvine, CA:
Myra Melford, piano
Michael Dessen, trombone
There were live audiences in each site, but this video shows only the San Diego space (where Oguri appears on the screen).
Unfortunately this video documentation has poor sound and video quality, but this short excerpt gives an idea what the event was like. The audience was hearing high quality, uncompressed, low-latency audio from the remote sites, networked through the open source JackTrip software that has been developed at Stanford University. This excerpt is the final section of Telecantus, a piece I composed for this concert. The concert was all original music composed by Mark Dresser, Myra Melford and myself.
