coLABoratory: Playing It UNsafe at Carnegie Hall

Over the weekend on Facebook we caught wind of what looks to be a one of a kind collaboration between composer Dan Visconti and visual artist Simon Tarr that premieres this Friday at Carnegie Hall titled 'Glitchscape'. Leading up to the event, Simon has been blogging about his preparations, bouncing between apps like After Effects, Cinema 4D, Quartz Composer and VDMX as he feverishly extracts images that have been stuck in his head for the last decade.

From Simon's blog:

"There have been some images stuck in my head since I was a little kid. They've been with me for so long that I forget that they're only in my mind. I actually don't know if they're only in my mind.

I finally caught one of them tonight. Just a couple minutes ago, I got a hold of one I've been chasing for about twelve years. It's not done yet, but it will be soon. I'm surprised and pleased that it looks like it's going to end up playing a part in a new piece that'll be coming out in April."

"The full name of the show is coLABoratory: Playing It UNsafe. The piece that Dan and I are doing, Glitchscape, is one of five new compositions, though ours in the only one that has a new live video piece as a part of it. "

Can't wait to see and hear more after the show! If you're in the NYC area, tickets appear to still be available for this Friday, April 5 at 7:30 PM at Carnegie Hall.
