Mark Dresser and Barre Phillips Telematic Performance

Saturday, May 7th, 2016 11:30 am

Conrad Prebys Music Center Recital Hall


UC San Diego Professor of Music, bassist, improviser and composer Mark Dresser will bring a new telematic performance to the Department of Music on Saturday, May 7 at 11:30 a.mThe performance will be held in conjunction with the pioneering improvising bassist Barre Phillips, who will perform his half of the duet while onstage at the Delco Festival in Nimes, France.
Telematics is a mode of music performance made possible through musicians' access to high speed and high bandwidth Internet. Through telematic performance, musicians in two different locations can collaborate as if they were playing in the same room, no matter where they are or what time zone they're in. Inspired by these possibilities, Dresser began experimenting with telematic performance in 2007 and has since brought several such concerts to the Conrad Prebys Music Center. While Dresser's last telematic performance on April 10, 2016 concluded a three-part series that united musicians in Seoul, South Korea, Zurich, Switzerland and New York, his duet with Phillips will comprise entirely of improvised material.
Please note that this concert will begin at 11:30 a.m. PST, local time.
