About this Event

Doors 6:30 pm - Show time 7:30pm sharp

Morton Subotnick and Lillevan perform the USA premiere of their newest audiovisual collaboration “As I Live and Breathe.” The legendary composer will summon sounds — both those generated organically and those multiplied by the electronics – through early electronic instruments and devices, including the iconic Buchla synthesizer. With lyrical moving image by his long-running collaborator Lillevan, the artists will transform the theater through shifting sonic and visual landscapes.

Morton Subotnick is a pioneer in the development of electronic music and multi-media performance and an innovator in works involving instruments and other media, including interactive computer music systems. Most of his music calls for a computer part, or live electronic processing; his oeuvre utilizes many of the important technological breakthroughs in the history of the genre. In the early 60s, Subotnick taught at Mills College and with Ramon Sender co-founded the San Francisco Tape Music Center. It was during this period that he worked with Don Buchla on what may have been the first analog synthesizer. For Recombinant 2019, Morton Subotnick and his visualist Lillevan will present the North American premiere of their new work “As I Live and Breathe.”

Lillevan is an animation, video and media artist. He is perhaps best known as a founding member of the visual / music group Rechenzentrum (1997-2008). Lillevan has performed and collaborated with a multitude of artists from a wide array of genres, ranging from opera to installation, from minimal electronic experimentalism to dance and classical music; performed and exhibited all over the globe, including many of the major media festivals. For Lillevan a working process takes place in a Godardian-like search for the relationship between images, intensities and textures.
