Krzysztof Knittel & Andrei Smirnov, Brain Jazz

Two composers from Poland and Russia collaborate using unusual technologies. Smirnov, playing 3D Theremin and Max/MSP, is joined by Knittel, playing interactive monochord (utilizing infra-red beams), iPhone, and iPad. They perform three pieces: Brain Jazz 2 EI, Free Improv 2, and Free For(m) Macwin 3.  Brain Jazz 2 is a performance/installation based on an interactive brain-wave biofeedback system: all processes depend on mimicking the face of the performer. Recorded at EIF in March 2013.


Experimental Intermedia Concerts


A radio series of programs recorded at Experimental Intermedia Foundation (EI), the legendary, influential downtown New York loft venue, incubator, showcase, and community center for composers and experimenters in the arts, known for being first and best at presenting (and recording!) new music and new media since the 70s. The concert series is programmed and produced by composer Phill Niblock who has been directing presentations at Experimental Intermedia since 1973 (well over 1,000 performances) and he is the curator of EI's XI Records label. In 1993, he opened a satellite space with window gallery in Ghent, Belgium. For more on the concert series, recordings, archives, and other intermedia adventures of Phill Niblock around the globe visit the Experimental Intermedia Foundation site. This radio project is a partnership between Experimental Intermedia Foundation and The Clocktower Gallery and its radio station at The series is produced and managed with the generous efforts of Byron Westbrook.
