John Supko and Bill Seaman: ‘s_traits’ with Wet Ink Ensemble

Clocktower Productions and Pioneer Works, Center for Art and Innovation present the release event for composer John Supko’s innovative new CD, s_traits, created in collaboration with media artist Bill Seaman and the intelligent computer program, bearings_traits. The evening’s festivities include handpicked musicians from Wet Ink Ensemble, performing alongside bearings_traits’ spontaneously generated music, composed by navigating an 110-hour database of audio samples and forging them into multitrack pieces in real time. To complement the music, a video program, arranged by Seaman, projects free-form images in the space.

The show is followed by an after party a few blocks away at Van Dyke Park (98A Van Dyke St) New Amsterdam Records’ headquarters.
