I was honored to be the 2015 Animator-in-Residence at Circuit Bridges, “a concert series dedicated to highlighting the community of electroacoustic music creators.” I produced three one minute animated “sketches” that were distributed to a myriad of electroacoustic composers. Fifteen compositions were selected and performed by electric violinist, Eva Ingolf, at Gallery MC in New York on June 25th, Mobius in Boston on June 27th, and Mengi in Reykjavík Iceland on September 10.

The purpose of Fifteen-Minutes-of-Fame is to promote a great variety of contemporary music to audiences hungry to hear what living composers are writing today. Ingolf will perform one-minute works by composers James Bohn, Rosa Brands, Michael Braudy, Doug Thomas Cuadrado, Douglas DaSilva, Melissa Grey, Peter Hawkey, Dan Mackenzie, Daniel Mihai, Melanie Mitrano, David Morneau, AlonNechushtan, Daniel Schnee, Bob Siebert, and Carrin Tanaka. Mobius (est. 1977) is a non-profit, artist-run organization, whose mission is to generate, shape and test experimental art. The members of the organization believe an effective strategy for supporting this art is to establish grounds that build relationships among fellow artists. Mobius is committed to structuring environments that foster projects incorporating a wide range of disciplines. This approach sets in motion situations where the artist’s impact can be seen locally, nationally and internationally. Constructing art initiatives outside accepted frameworks and encouraging animated discourse with the public are fundamental to Mobius. Circuit Bridges is a monthly concert series dedicated to highlighting the community of electroacoustic music creators. Founded in 2014 by Robert Voisey and under the artistic direction of David Morneau and Melissa Grey, Circuit Bridges strives to explore all music under the electroacoustic umbrella. This includes but is not limited to sonic art, radio art, glitch, circuit bending, electronica, real-time improvisation, network performance, audiovisual composition, mash-up, and data sonification. Our mission is to connect with artists from around the globe to present the wealth of electroacoustic music being written today.
