Telematics= Cutting Edge Tech + Music, Nov 2

Mark your calendars for Nov. 2, when UCSDs lauded music program will bring technology and music together in a collaboration that must be experienced to be believed.

Inspiralling 2011: Telematic Jazz Explorations is the event.

Telematic concerts involve the Internet 2 (a not-for-profit advanced networking consortium), super high-speed bandwidth networks, as well as state-of-the-art video and audio connections--to feature groups of improvising musicians in different co-locations (in this case SD and NYC), interacting with each other in real time, with a minimal latency.

At UCSD, bassist Mark Dresser, trombonist Michael Dessen, pianist Joshua White, and flute virtuoso Nicole Mitchell will play in concert with NY musicians: soprano saxophonist Jane Ira Bloom, alto saxophonist Oliver Lake, trumpeter Amir El Saffar, cellist Tomas Ulrich, laptop artist Ikue Mori with Sarah Weaver conducting.

A small army of highly trained video and audio engineers work at both locations to stream the video and audio feeds across the country. The musicians at UCSD will play together in front of one or more huge video screens featuring the NY improvisers.

In addition, two video artists, John Crawford and Sarah Jane Lapp will be manipulating the visual stream in real time, and mixing the images with dedicated film at the UCSD location in league with set designer Victoria Petrovich, who supplies various transparent surfaces that act as screens to project the video images upon.

Dresser and Dessen have each written sprawling, episodic compositions especially for this concert, which also leave plenty of room for improvisation. Weaver also contributes a composition and will conduct, utilizing a very specific language of hand signals and gestures that both locations will be able to follow.

Experiencing one of these concerts is somewhat akin to watching a high-tech sci-fi movie in a 4-D theater...except, this is going to be real.

All of the musicians involved are globally renown improvisers operating at the top of their game.

The technology involved here has been years in the making, with software and hardware that is significantly more advanced than anything commercially available.

To get an accurate visual, try to imagine what Skype will look and sound like in 10 years.

So, hard-core music lovers, free-jazz aficionados, tech-geeks of all stripes and anyone open to getting their minds blown: Nov. 2, 7 p.m., UCSD Conrad Prebys Music Center Experimental Theater, CPMC 122. Tickets are $15.50 General Admission, $10.50 Faculty, Alumni and Staff. UCSD Student Rush: Free one-hour before the concert with ID.
