Interface, Curtis Bahn, Dan Trueman,
With special guests, Nick Fortunato and Tomie Hahn

Interactive computer music improvisation duo "Interface" creates sonic textures
ranging from delicate imperceptible noise to a high energy wall of sound. They
have extended, surrounded, and obscured their electric stringed instruments
with a variety of technologies, creating an organic, gesturally powerful
computer music. For these performances they will be joined by dancer Tomie Hahn
and interactive video artist Nick Fortunato.

Curtis plays a 5-string "vertical bass" (like an acoustic bass with no body)
fitted with electrical pickups, various sensors and controllers which allow him
to "drive" his computer during performance. Dan plays a 6-string electric
violin and an electric bow of his own design; the R-Bow is a normal violin bow
covered with motion and pressure sensors that send performance information to
Dan's computer performance system.

Interface will be joined by video performance artist Nick Fortunato. Nick
performs with a live computer video-sampling rig using both hardware video
processors, and "NATO," new extensions to the MAX interactive composition
language allowing complex video manipulation.

The performance at Mobius will also feature dancer Tomie Hahn in an interactive
dance/electronic music composition entitled Streams, done in collaboration
with Curtis Bahn. Hahn is a musician and dancer trained in the Japanese flute
(shakuhachi), Japanese traditional dance (Nihon Buyo) and contemporary Japanese
performance (Butoh).

Their instruments are dynamic, changing constantly from performance to
performance and within performances. Recently, they have begun to integrate
spherical speaker arrays, which radiate sound in all directions, into their
performance set-up. Interface has a commitment to free-improvisation and
electronic music composition. They create real-time sonic environments in
performance which combine pre-composed electronic sounds with real-time digital
signal processing, synthesis, algorithmic composition, and sampling.
