Laurie Anderson on developing new instruments, at EMPAC

Experimental media and performance artist Laurie Anderson -- who's currently EMPAC's first distinguished artist-in-residence -- is giving a talk on "her ever-evolving development of new instruments and interfaces for her productions and performances" on February 14 at 7 pm. It's free -- but reservations are recommended, and they're now open (it's expected to fill up fast). Update: It's now full -- but because of the strong interest, EMPAC will be streaming the talk in its concert hall (for which you won't need a reservation).

Comments

Tickets are all gone (just called) but they're now going to be live streaming the show in the concert hall because there has been so much interest. So... no reservations needed anymore but you won't get to sit in the theater.

Yes - what Cmaxby said! Come on by and catch it in the Concert Hall - Anderson will pop her head in at the end of the talk to say hi.

I think *not* composting sounds odd. Especially when we constantly hear about our ever growing landfill.
