Featuring an Audio\Visual Installation by: Native Instruments & Derivative, Inc.
Native Instruments partners with the visual synthesis company, Derivative Inc. to create an interactive audio\visual installation that will stimulate and inspire the aural realm as well as the ocular one. If you are a musician, computer geek or an art buff you will instantly be drawn in to the fun! Guests will be able to jam together on machines running Reaktor 5 synthesizers synced together via OSC technology (Open Sound Control).
As people are jamming together, tweaking knobs to manipulate the out of this world sound, they will be sending signals to Derivative Inc.s visual synthesizers in real time creating their own audio\visual performance.

Too Many Mistakes
Los Angeles duo Emis began as an experiment in erratically programmed percussion and improvised synth playing, and has since evolved into an electronic songsmith with a unique live act.
Emis noise makers Forrest Sutton and Jesse Cooper take a largely hands-on approach to performing, using hardware controllers and custom software instruments to manipulate the most detailed elements of a piece in real-time. Therefore, no two expressions of a particular song are ever the same, and the quality of the music is highly influenced by audience participation.
The debut album, as yet unnamed, is due for release in the fourth quarter of 2005.
