"Autoharp": Live Performance & Hardware/Software Design

A description from Roulette TV:

In Lowder's performance of the enigmatical "Autoharp" for Roulette TV, the vibrating strings of Lowder's original instrument are picked up live and visually amplified onto a screen, while other images (rotating numbers) appear mysteriously between the beat frequencies (like those on a film soundtrack). The strings trigger viola, guitar, and mandolin samples. Following this gradually unfolded, evocation-like piece, Lowder explains how improvisation and chance elements help him keep the work fresh to himself after long hours of technical effort, how he freed himself from classical music, and he describes his history of involvement with computers and programming and his transition to interactive computer art. In the tradition of musician-performers who adapt scientific instruments and discoveries for their art (such as Alvin Lucier's brainwave piece, and works by Paul Di Marinis, Maryanne Amacher, David Tudor, Ron Kuivila, Tom Zahuranec, and others), Lowder discusses a new piece involving detection of epiglottal movement, and describes the kinds of venues available for new electronic art and music.

Vidician (video artist + musician) Jarryd Lowder, the recipient of a Jerome Grant for emerging artists, has created his sui generis video installation works and performances for venues throughout the world including the PixelAche Festival in Helsinki (Finland), the Museum of Contemporary Art in Lyon (France), the MYV Video Music Awards, the Transamerica '99 Festival (San Francisco), and the Circulo de Bellas Artes (Madrid).

Minsato Le, Mi Dayihome

Motion graphics & video editing by Jarryd Lowder, 2006.  Here's the backstory of this video... Yale Evelev, President of Luaka Bop records, handed me a VHS tape with some TV puppet show footage somewhere in West Africa and asked me to sync it with the song "Minsato Le, Mi Dayihome" by Orchestre Poly-Rythmo de Cotonou Dahomey. Add in some psychedelic mo-graph using Illustrator and AfterEffects and, voilà, it's done.
