HAND MADE TECHNO

Jaron Lanier and Will Calhoun love electronic beats as much as anyone, but who had the idea that the machines should be allowed to play themselves? What if those electronic sounds were played by human hands? Will has already conquered rock ("Living Colour") and jazz ("Live at the Blue Note"), and now he masters electronic percussion. Jaron has conquered technology (virtual reality), and now plays his own eerie, soulful melodies on strange instruments instead of sampling the sounds of anonymous third world people. Come hear dance music played by people!
Live at the Knitting Factory
74 Leonard St., NYC
(212)219-3006

Show time 8pm, tix $10


Extra attractions:

See startling new computer vision technology - an Ashanti mask will be brought to life!
