Set 1, 8pm: Tom Duff & his Wire Machine
In a rare appearance, Bay Area master Tom Duff will install and perform/operate Wire Machine, which takes Alvin Lucier's seminal composition/installation Music on a Long Thin Wire and runs with it.
Tom will use his expanded version of Lucier's kit to perform his piece Lucier, Golomb, Gray, exploring the effects of useful information encoding schemes on a vibrating electromechanical system and its listeners.
You won't know what hit you, but your chakras will be thoroughly cleansed (losslessly, and without spurious outputs). Listen if you dare…
