Video of My Guest Solo Performance with the Boulder Laptop Orchestra Event at CU Atlas Institute

I had the incredible honor of being invited to perform with the Boulder Laptop Orchestra on March 18th (Related Blog Post). This is a live video recording from the “Boulder Laptop Orchestra BLOrK performs with guest Mark Mosher” event (Facebook Invite).

The video features my original solo improvisational piece “Tonalities from Orbit” which I was invited to perform to close out the night with the ensemble. Earlier in the program I performed interactive visuals for 7 pieces for the ensemble.

The video is live and audio from a Zoom Q4N.

Program Notes

Tonalities from Orbit” is an original structured improvisational piece inspired by the ground breaking work of Louis and Bebe Barron – who in the 1956 provided the soundtrack to the seminal Scifi film Forbidden Planet.
The hand-built circuits they used to create the “electronic tonalities” of this film pre-dated the modern synthesizer and were limited to oscillators (producing mainly square, sine, & triangle waves), ring modulators, overdriven tubes, reverb, and delay (done with tape manipulation).
Informed by these limitations, and using only a Nord Lead 4 synthesizer, Mark created 14 original and expressive “circuit states”. In this performance he will play and morph between these states as a framework for the piece as he brings his version of the Krell to life.
The performance will be complimented with Mark’s real-time visuals using only live camera input as a source with audio-responsive automation.

Recorded live at the Concréte Mixer IV concert at the Walnut Room in Denver on January 30th, 2015. I am live sampling the Copper Heart with an Elektron Octatrack and providing drum elements, Victoria Lunday is playing Theremin. The only audio source for Octatrack other than drum samples. Shot with GoPro with audio from Zoom H2n recording ambient room sound.
