A Synesthete's Atlas - Eric Theise & cellist Daniel Zamzow
Fort Collins, Colorado, United States
Wolverine Farm Publick House
Real time cartographic improvisations using projected, manipulated digital maps by Eric Theise, in live collaboration with Daniel Zamzow’s dreamy cello sounds. A visual wash of street grids, land masses, water bodies, and curiosities from built and natural environments. Saturated colors. The subtlest of tints. Glitches in crowdsourced data. Jittery zooms and pans. Orphaned information and free-floating symbology.
The performance is presented by the Radical Open Science Syndicate (ROSS) and the Geospatial Centroid, will last 50 minutes, and will occasionally introduce strobing effects that may affect photosensitive viewers.
Eric Theise is a San Francisco-based artist and geospatial software developer. Through video and realtime performance tools he reinvigorates the perceptual inquiries of structural filmmakers, experimental animators, op artists, and the Light and Space movement as new possibilities in the realm of digital cartography.
Daniel Zamzow is a musician and audio producer who most frequently performs on cello in collaboration with Cloud Cult, Tyler T, and Crispy Watkins. Daniel’s career began in the Minneapolis music scene, and expanded to include years of work in community radio, podcasting, and music education. He now lives in Northern Colorado with his family of musicians.
