Spooky Interaction - Irvine Perspective

A telepresence performance with music and video staged simultaneously in Pittsburgh, San Francisco and Irvine. I created a live video mix from the three sites that was projected simultaneously in all the sites. The performance featured Geri Allen (piano) and George Lewis (trombone) performing from the University of Pittsburgh, Nicole Mitchell (flute) and Michael Dessen (trombone) performing from UC Irvine, and Francis Wong (saxophone) performing from the San Francisco Jazz Center. There were also two “virtual performers” on Disklavier, one in Irvine and one in Pittsburgh, driven by Lewis’ Voyager software system. This is the Irvine audience perspective showing multiple screens.
