NEW UTUBE VIDEO - recycled tyvek
recycled tyvek, an interactive video improvisation for e-cello and computer by Jeffrey Krieger was premiered on March 9th at Capital Community College in downtown Hartford, Connecticut.
recycled tyvek is a computer interactive video improvisation using video and sound collected for the collaborative, parallel media project, Reliquary of Labor by media artist, Gene Gort, composer, Ken Steen and Jeffrey Krieger, e-cello. The improvisation is also inspired by the cello-like instrument of North India, the sarangi. This instrument has 40 shimmering, sympathetic strings which must be tuned according to the determined mode or raga. The video image is a metaphor for the resonating goat skin attached to the belly of the sarangi, and is essential to its particular quality of sound.
