July 2007 Digital Art Weeks

I was accepted to perform at the Digital Art Weeks 2007 festival in Zurich and published a poster on the performance. However, I was not able to present the particular performance outlined in said poster as my partner, Oscar, was having trouble with his Swedish VISA.

As part of the aftermath from the MMW in Amsterdam, there is a blurb about the robotcowboy unit on we-make-money-not-art and I have some pics.


March 2007 Progress Report

I have a new video outlining the current progress of my thesis project: the robotcowboy unit. unit is a mobile performance system based around a wearable computer which allows me to perform computer-based music without being tied down by the computer on stage. I can play inside, outside, here, there, and everywhere.

Coming from an active rock and roll background, this is my response to the laptop performance aesthetic.
