Jeffrey Stolet, professor of intermedia arts at the University of Oregon, will be guest artist for the 2015 Lipa Festival of Contemporary Music, March 3 at 7:30 pm in Martha Ellen Tye Recital Hall.
Stolet performs using devices normally used as computer game controllers but uses them to produce provocative poetic music mixing computer-generated sound with intoning voice. In one work, Lariat Rituals, Stolet’s arm motions create musically phonetic variations in a computer-synthesized singing voice. The balance of the program includes 3D spatialized sound compositions and "visual music" which is computer-generated animation with integrated computer-generated music. Stolet will give a pre-concert introduction at 7pm.
"Gesture:Icon:Utterance" March 3, 7:30–9:00 p.m., pre-concert introduction at 7pm, in the Martha Ellen Tye Recital Hall, Music Hall
