Performance panel discussion tonight

Hey everyone.

On March 30, at 6 p.m., I will be involved in a panel discussion about art and technology.

It will take place in the Intermountain Network and Scientific Computation Center at the University of Utah. Admission is free.

The topic tonight will be about the use of technology in art, presentations and events, and it will be hosted by the Another Language Performing Arts Company.

The company utilizes network technology to present two or more performances from different places to one or more audiences, across the globe.

Tonight’s panel will include not only yours truly, but also Utah Arts Alliance executive director Derek Dyer, Utah Dance in Education Association web designer Sean Guymon, digital photographer/video producer and midi programmer Matthew Loel T. Hepworth, Children’s Media Workshop director John Schaefer, writer/podcaster Brian Staker and Kersten Swinyard, the Leonardo gallery exhibits project manager.

Additional panel discussions will be held on March 31 and April 1.

Again, the cost of attending any of these discussions is free.

Last Friday (March 26), the Another Language Performing Arts Company premiered its new installment called “InterPlay: Event Horizon,” which featured Utah composer and singer Lexie Levitt on guitar, California-based flutist Diane Hsu, Alaskan actress/writer Carrie Baker and the works of videographer Miho Aoki, who is based in Tokyo.

Additional performances will be April 2-3, 7 p.m., and April 2, 1 p.m.

Cost of the performances is $7.
