Lampo and the Graham Foundation are pleased to present Spencer Yeh in his third Lampo performance featuring new and recent videos including Baby Birds, Eclipse, Scrub Study, and a single-channel composite of the multi-channel installation, IMVIS. According to Yeh, “What I'm presenting is essentially a live performance with video acting not only as a supplement, but as a rudimentary AI [artificial intelligence]-type presence in live improvisation…In generating both pre-determined, as well as indeterminate gestures, the videos act as a ‘score’ as well as a sparring partner. The audio feed is placed on level aural ground with the musician's signal.”
Spencer Yeh (B. 1975, Taipei, Taiwan), studied film at Northwestern University, lived in Cincinnati for many years, and is now based in Brooklyn. He is recognized for the musical project Burning Star Core, as well as many other individual and collaborative activities. Current projects include The New Monuments (with Ben Hall and Don Dietrich), a yet-to-be-named quartet with Nate Wooley, Ryan Sawyer, and Colin Stetson, and ongoing collaborations with Okkyung Lee, Graham Lambkin, John Wiese, Chris Corsano, Paul Flaherty, Lasse Marhaug, Eli Keszler, and many others.
This performance is presented in partnership with Lampo. Founded in 1997, Lampo is a non-profit organization for experimental music, sound art and intermedia projects.
