Experimental musicians Haptic (Steven Hess, Joseph Clayton Mills, and Adam Sonderberg) and video artist Lisa Slodki (aka Noisecrush) discuss their work and ideas during this informal gallery talk. Please join them for an after party in the café following the talk for further conversation, and enjoy images and music selected by the artist. The after party ends at 8 pm.

Using analogue sound technology and found images, experimental musicians Haptic and video artist Lisa Slodki collaborate to create real time, improvised, audiovisual environments. Characterized by a rigorous attention to sonic detail, Haptic creates densely textured soundscapes that range from stark minimalism to carefully controlled chaos. In response to Haptic's music, Slodki uses VCRs, video monitors, and projections of digitally manipulated found footage to generate images that emphasize subtle emotions and gestures. In addition to a collaborative sound and video installation, Haptic and Slodki perform live each Tuesday evening in the UBS 12 x 12 gallery, where the visual and auditory components of their performance are mixed and created within the space.
