Tonight I will be attending the Future Music Oregon concert

Future of Music Oregon is a live audio and visual performance. Jeffrey Stolet, my Digital Music Composition teacher will be performing a new piece.
The program will also include new works created in the Future Music Oregon studios for live-performance instruments combined with electronics, computer animation, Yamaha Disklavier and Electric Chair–the latter an imaginative instrumental creation involving a standard office swivel chair.
Works by Applebaum* on the program include "Intellectual Property I" for Disklavier and improviser, and "S-tog" for mousetrap, mini-mouse, duplex mausphon and live electronics.
In addition, UO graduate student John Villec will present his controversial video and sound installation, "The Exquisite Corpse." Due to the adult content (nude female torso) in the Villec video piece, audience discretion is advised.

I am excited to see what this is about. I'll try to sneak a picture to you guys later tonight.

*Applebaum, a Stanford University faculty member, received his Ph.D. from the University of California at San Diego. His solo, chamber, choral, orchestral, electro-acoustic and electronic work has been performed throughout the United States, Europe and Asia. He has received commissions from Betty Freeman, the Merce Cunningham Dance Company, the Paul Dresher Ensemble, Zeitgeist, Manufacture and the American Composers Forum, among others. His music can be heard on the Innova label.
