From networked_performance:
tobias c. van Veen and Trace Reddell will perform and discuss their new audio works at 7:30 p.m. Fri. Nov. 10 at Eyebeam. tobias will be poking his head into the aether of the airwaves to perform a short interpretation of "Autosevocom Tacsat" and will give a taste of the as-yet unreleased audiowork "Foil."

"Autosevocom Tacsat" explores surveillance frequencies of encoded police channels against a backdrop of low-end sound composed from fragments of real and virtual war-torn landscapes. "Foil" is a blend of urban recordings from a peaceful Western city with its modernist though unpeaceful counterpart in Beirut falls prey to explosive interventions in EA's BattleField 2 online wargame, eventually detonating itself into the debris of alterity.

Trace will be performing his new live cinema work, “somaticosmos.” In the "somaticosmos," cosmic dissonances intersect with bodily pulse and flow, situating human experience within a barometer of galactic conditions. Noisy space transmissions give way to lush and alien terrains, occasionally disrupted by streams of microscopic rhythms and staticky beats. The visual performance melds the techniques of live VJ projections and digital lumia with the cosmic cinema of Jordan Belson.
