    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
    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)
