We are excited for the upcoming premiere of Brett Sroka’s Sine Qua Non at Roulette in Brooklyn, NY. Opening on January 20, 2014 at 8:00 pm, Sine Qua Non (which translates to “without which there is nothing) is part live performance and part multi-channel sound installation, as the music Brett and his collaborator Carl Maguire will be performing is sampled, processed, and played back live in the space by the Max/MSP patch Brett developed at the IEA during his residency in February, 2013. After a period of live performance, the patch is able to take over the performance, using the sampled audio to continue the generative performance.

If you are in or around Brooklyn, NY around the time of the performance then this is not an opening to miss.
