Please join us on Wednesday, March 6 for the
(*&$%#876th meeting of dorkbot-nyc
Featuring the cervelliere stylings of:
Michael Richison: Exquisite E Pluribus Unum Exquisite E Pluribus Unum
is equal parts VJ performance, political rally, improvised sound bed, and video installation.
Utilizing presidential campaign footage from last year as raw material, this performance samples
words, phrases, breaths, pauses, and other sounds and silences in order to build percussion tracks,
melodies, and solos. The title of this performance comes from two places. The first is exquisite
corpse, a collaborative game that was originally played by surrealist painters and poets, and e
pluribus unum, one of several slogans used by the United States meaning "one out of many." The two
parts of the title are an appropriate description of the process, as the piece endeavors to capture
the spirit of exquisite corpse in both its visual and linguistic components.
Jeff Snyder: strange musical instruments Jeff Snyder has been building
strange musical instruments for several years. He will show some of his latest creations and show
the current state of his recent attempts to make a portable wooden resonator speaker.
Sophi Kravitz: Mobile Phone Signal Detection Project The "Texting Trapper"
detects mobile phone signals. It knows when you're texting, talking or surfing online, especially
when you're not supposed to be! Sophi Kravitz is an engineer and artist living in Kingston, NY.
Location One is extremely grateful to The NY State Council on
the Arts and The New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.
