    Music from the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA, said "karma") at Stanford University. CCRMA is a multi-disciplinary facility where composers and researchers work together using computer-based technology both as an artistic medium and as a research tool. This event features mostly experimental music by composers, researchers, musicians and technologists from CCRMA working with their hand rolled systems. All pieces will be performed live, many in native 8 channel speaker diffusion format.
    Performers (not necessarily in this order):
    Ge Wang : "TBD" : Live coding with the Chuck programming language. (8 channel piece)
    Fernando Lopez-Lezcano : "El Dinosaurio Speaks" : Looped and layered live analog electronics. (8 channel piece)
    Juan-Pablo Caceres : "Give a man an orchestra and he doesn't become us" : Laptop : A real-time improvisational distillation of a previous project, 'orquesta', where I "pieced together zillion little orchestral instrument samples." This time I am using the same idea, but real-time and sound processing (forbidden ingredients of the previous project) are permitted and most welcome.
    Michael Gurevich : Dolphin sythesis : Laptop
    Maladies Sexuellement Transmissibles : "Collage" : Ensemble
    Bruno Ruviaro : "Malleable" : “Able to be hammered or pressed permanently out of shape without breaking or cracking”. Malleare means “to hammer”, and that may remind of the word “mallet”; the composer, this charlatan percussionist, works in a forge, hammering old sounds at high temperatures, beating them gently into new shapes, and sweating. Music, in the end, is all forgery. (8 channel piece)
    Luke Dahl : Live beat-based electronic music
    DJ interludes: steinunn (Iceland) jeffcoop (Texas) skizzy (SF)
    Installations by: Sasha Leitman, Michael Gurevich, Stephan von Muehlen, and Reed Anderson Video Projections by: Hiroko Terasawa plus an auction of the "Interactive Installation" by Stephan von Muehlen and Michael Gurevich
