Crystal Mooncone--participatory workshop
Crystal Mooncone is an electroacoustic band with a psychedelic sensibility, mixing playful interaction with committed listening and melding virtuosic musicianship with a taste for risk. With over ten years of collaborative improvisation and composition combining piano, organ, flute and accordion with found sound and laptop electronics, this ambient, avant garde world trio recently released their fifth album, Listening Beam Five on Innova Recordings.
Stephen Rush is a Professor of Music at the University of Michigan where he founded the Digital Music Ensemble over 25 years ago.
Chris Peck is a composer, computer musician, improviser, and songwriter with a longstanding engagement as a collaborator with contemporary dance and performance.
Jon Moniaci is a composer, musician and software engineer who frequently collaborates with dance makers. His music incorporates acoustic and electronic textures and often relies on flexible and improvisatory structures.
The workshop runs from 3:00-5:00pm, with a concert performance following at 7:30pm.
