Composer/media artist Mark Coniglio and choreographer Dawn Stoppiello demonstrate Coniglio's new Isadora programming environment for the realtime control of digital media, especially digital video and computer music. The presentation will begin with an overview of Isadora and its uses, and will then proceed to a more detailed explanation of how to program using Isadora.
This is the first of several classes for musicians, dancers, video artists, and others interested in the design of interactive media performances. Participants in the classes will learn to program using Isadora and will receive hands-on training by its author. No prior programming experience is required.

Choreographer Dawn Stoppiello and composer/media artist Mark Coniglio direct a recital of new dance works featuring students of the UCI Dance Department and the new software Isadora for realtime manipulation of digital video.
This recital is the culmination of a five-day residency and workshop at UCI by Stoppiello and Coniglio, teaching the
UCI professor Christopher Dobrian demonstrates Jitter, a new extension to the Max/MSP music programming environment. Jitter introduces the capability of programming realtime video and image processing, 3D geometry (OpenGL), and data visualization/sonification, closely integrated with the existing music and audio capabilities of Max/MSP.
Dobrian is the author of the documentation and tutorials for Max and MSP and is co-author of the tutorials for Jitter. This two-hour demonstration provides an overview of Max/MSP and presents many of the new features of Jitter, including realtime video processing, correlation of video and music in live performance, algorithmic image generation in response to music, and visual representation of numerical data.
Pianist/composer/improviser Mike Garson (David Bowie, Smashing Pumpkins, Free Flight) performs a recital of original compositions for piano in collaboration with musicians from the UCI Music Department.
