Sonofusion and the Overtone Violin

On Wednesday, February 7, Fishbon Event Lab activists were on hand for the remarkable blending of new music, the radically re-envisioned electronic Overtone Violin and Jitter generated graphics. John's Sonofusion is an interactive audio-visual piece for Dan's Overtone Violin, an entirely custom built, radically augmented musical instrument that preserves the traditions of violin technique while adding a whole new set of possibilities for the musician. In this piece, the instrument interactively manipulates audio, video, and three-dimensional graphics. The performer journeys through a series of virtual spaces, each with their own set of underlying processes which the performer controls through gesture and sound.
