UC Santa Cruz to collaborate with three universities for live online concert

Musicians from UC Santa Cruz and three other universities will improvise music over the internet simultaneously from different locations in a live telematic music concert on Thursday, March 22, at 5 p.m. The performance will stream live.

As part of her MFA Thesis in Digital Arts and New Media (DANM), UC Santa Cruz graduate student Cynthia Payne will perform with her group E2.510 from the UCSC campus at Engineering 2, Room 506 and 510 (studio). The public is invited to attend.

The online concert will feature the UCSC group collaborating with three other performing ensembles: the Weave Soundpainting Orchestra in Chicago; Pauline Oliveros' Tintinabulate Ensemble in New York; and the SOUNDWire Group at Stanford University's Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics.

UCSC's E2.510 includes Cynthia Payne, Richard Caceres and leaf tine, with video art by Jamie Burkart and Phoenix Toews, and audio mixing by Chris Preston.
