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
