New Interfaces for Musical Expression
Glasslands Gallery (289 Kent Ave., Brooklyn)
$10, free with NYU id
The 12th annual ITP NIME show presents novel musical instruments that go beyond traditional sounds and interfaces. Each performer will play a newly designed electronic instrument that aims to breathe new life into the live performance of digital music.
Electronic music is usually played with mundane computer peripherals. Laptop musicians tend to sit at a desk and give performances that feel like watching someone work in their cubicle. The idea behind NIME is to go beyond the mouse and keyboard and beyond even piano keys and drum pads. It seeks to present performances that tap the expressive potentials of recently possible technologies.
NIME is an end-of-semester performance by 14 graduate student artists from the Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) at NYU.
Over the course of the semester, students have been designing and preparing novel musical instruments for this FINAL LIVE PERFORMANCE. Come join us and experience musical expressions as you’ve never imagined before.
