February ReSiDeNts Announced
March Submissions Now Open

We are happy to announce our second group of ReSiDeNts, who will be
creating new works at LEMUR in February:

Holland Hopson is a composer, improviser, and electronic artist.
Holland will bring Old-Time Appalachia to the League of Electronic
Musical Urban Robots by creating new pieces for the LEMURbots and Tru
One, his clawhammer banjo/sensor interface.

Zach Layton is a composer, improviser, curator and new media artist
based in new york with an interest in biofeedback, generative
algorithms, experimental music, biomimicry and contemporary
architectural practice. His work investigates complex relationships
and topologies created through the interaction of simple core
elements like sine waves, minimal surfaces and kinetic visual
patterns. He is planning to create a new work for guitar, sax, drums
plus robots. The piece will be composed using an open score format
encouraging improvisation among the human players and neural network
software to encourage improvisation among the robots.

Max Lord is a percussionist who will be writing a new piece for the
LEMUR robots in collaboration with NYC-based choreographer Ellen
Godena. The score will integrate a live performance on the Marimba
Lumina with robot percussion and spontaneous robot-inspired movement.

Artists from all performing and installation disciplines are
encouraged to apply to ReSiDeNt, including musicians, composers,
dancers, choreographers, video artists, interactive installation
artists, performance artists, multimedia artists and others. To learn

Deadlines are rolling, with March submissions accepted until February
