Workshop w/ Patrick Proctor - 6.30pm/7.30pm
Concert - 8:00pm
This one hour workshop will serve as an introduction to the world of live projections and reactive programming. Using his personal experience as a guide, Patrick Proctor will give students a hands-on look at his own projects, insight into available technologies, and the steps to getting started with reactive programming. The course will include a comparison of available coding frameworks, discussion of different audio and video hardware options, and the ways in which software development choices can affect visual output. Additionally, he will discuss the challenges of the live environment and on-the-fly solutions. The course will conclude with a hands-on Q&A, as well as takeaway materials in the form of a reference web site.
Patrick Proctor is a designer and technologist currently working as the Digital Projects Lead at Viemeister Industries in New York City. After over ten years of professional experience as a software developer at companies such as Microsoft and Dolby Laboratories, he obtained a masters degree from NYU's Interactive Telecommunications Program in 2011. Since then he has focused on technology as a tool for experience creation. This has included a growing body of work focusing on reactive projections for live environments and "in camera" video effects. Over the past year he has worked with bands such as Lucius, Inzinzac, Desert Stars, and Viewfinder to create a unique repertoire of immersive visual experiences.

Inzinzac is a band that ignores borders. Led by French-born guitarist Alban Bailly, the trio’s sound references a wide swath of influences including atonal no-wave rock, Eastern European melodies, free jazz and Japanese noise bands. The result is a borderless sound that stretches beyond the usual sound of guitar, sax and drums – intense, razor-sharp, and yet still entrenched in melody.
The performance will be enhanced by reactive live projections from Patrick Proctor
Dan Scofield: tenor sax
Joe Moffett: trumpet
Alban Bailly: guitar
Eli Litwin: drums
Nick Millevoi is a Philadelphia-based guitarist who explores and expands upon the sound of the electric guitar through frequent use of non-traditional tunings, feedback, and raw noise. On his most recent solo-guitar release, In White Sky (Flenser Records), Millevoi combines his 6- and 12-string electric guitars with drones and extreme volume to create a startling new work. Nick is a member of the noise-rock-free jazz trio Many Arms, whose self-titled fourth album was released in 2012 by John Zorn's Tzadik label. Nick also has an ongoing collaboration with bassist/guitarist Edward Ricart whose first LP will be released in 2013 on Gaffer Records, and makes one half of the duo Archer Spade with trombonist Dan Blacksberg.
Nick has toured extensively as a solo guitarist as well as with Many Arms, Make A Rising, Electric Simcha, and Archer Spade. With Dan Blacksberg, the duo curate the Archer Spade Performance Series, a monthly concert series that has brought musicians from all over the globe to perform in Philadelphia. Nick has collaborated with many great artists, including Gene Coleman, Toshimaru Nakamura, Keir Neuringer, Thomas Buckner, Ken Ueno, Ches Smith, Travis LaPlante, Weasel Walter, Kevin Shea, Joe Lally, and many others. Millevoi is also a member of the bands Deveykus (Tzadik) and Electric Simcha, and is a former member of Make A Rising.
The Village Voice has called Nick a "guitar-wielding, audience-massacring hero," and music journal Burning Ambulance has described him as, "A fierce player who knows his way around a riff and can tie himself, and the listener, in knots with his contorted, passionate soloing." Foxy Digitalis called In White Sky, "a searing collection of exploded guitar compositions." Millevoi's music has been reviewed by SPIN, NPR Music, The Onion AV Club, Wire magazine, and many others.
