Julie Wade Installation in Windsor
The installation version of This is an important message for Julie Wade was set up for one day on March 3, 2016 in Studio A at the University of Windsor. The installation included two channels of Max/Jitter controlled video as well as four channels of audio. I have been experimenting with the idea of performable installations, where the installation operates on its own algorithmically but also invites interaction with a performer familiar with the piece. Gallery visitors were free to walk around the space, and I would occasionally get out my saxophone and play a few noisy gestures (multiphonics, squeaks, flurries of notes) with the available audio processing in mind. The situation raised a number of questions for me around the nature of performance and interaction that I will continue to think through. Photo by Sigi Torinus.
