[Nettime-bold] JARRYD LOWDER: in a live performance of "Autoharp" Friday the 13 Oct.7pm

For Immediate Release

The Alternative Museum and NetArt Initiatives Presents:

JARRYD LOWDER: in a live performance of "Autoharp" and "Friday the 13 Pt. 666"

Friday, October 13, 2000 
performance at 7 PM 
Parsons Center for New Design 
55 West 13th Street, 9th Fl. 

live online at


In "Autoharp", the performer plays a custom-built harp-like interface which 
triggers integrated video and audio. There are several 2-minute sections in 
the piece, during which the structure is improvisational. This piece was 
first performed at Roulette in New York in December of 1999 and more recently 
in San Francisco, Madrid and at the ICC in Tokyo . 

For the second piece of the evening, Jarryd and two guests- Brendan Klinger 
and Sam Laybourne, will be busting out a one-time-only culture-jammer-style 
gore fest called "Friday the 13th Pt. 666".  Jarryd will make some noise 
while Brendan and Sam will spew forth some retarded rap stylings.  Bring your 
goalie mask.
