the project

A creative means for a mediated journey, built from interactions between audience and performer, to achieve a synchronous audio expedition via an interactive visual vehicle. Artists will perform from locations throughout the Western hemisphere for an audience in New York, improvising off an ever changing graphic score generated by the presence of audience members. The audience will be free to move about the venue, their positions and movements interpreted as phrases for the score displayed as a 245 square foot projection.

Jesse Ricke is a media practitioner working in video, audio, and music, with an expertise in venue operation and event documentation. His political and social interests have lead him to internships with One Laptop Per Child in Peru, working with children in developing areas, The Groundswell Collective in the US, and his current position as technician for the new media non-profit studio CultureHub. His musical experience includes jazz studies at Florida International University and work in signed and independent groups.

Lisa had been working as a web designer with International Community Radio Taipei (ICRT) and with the digital advertising agencies Kehch Creative Inc. and Bremen Digital Creative on campaigns for BMW, MINI, Benz, Nike, Levi’s, M&M’s, Dove, and others.
