in/fuse 22: This is an important message for Julie Wade features an installation / performance with interactive audio and video by Brent Lee. He writes, “For the last ten years I have been receiving phone messages from a telemarketer looking for someone named Julie Wade; I finally started saving the messages and they now form the basis of the audio track for this piece.
This is an important message for Julie Wade exists as both an audiovisual installation and as a multimedia performance. In the installation version, a Max/MSP algorithm randomly accesses audio bits of the phone messages and disperses them among eight audio channels; each time a number is spoken, a random video clip featuring a number is triggered and projected. There are additional background materials created from the processed sound of the dial tone as well as video taken from the window of a train going through a long tunnel at high speed. In the live performance version, the tenor saxophone adds breathy noises and pops to the audio mix and in turn triggers video clips of an imaginary Julie Wade, waiting for her messages.”
Both versions will be presented as part of the in/fuse series of multimedia performance events on March 3, 2016 in Lambton Studio A at the University of Windsor. The installation will be open to the public from 4:30 pm to 8:30 pm, with 5-minute performances at 5, 6, 7, and 8 pm. FREE Admission.
This is an important message for Julie Wade was created and first performed in 2014 with the generous support of the Residency Eina Danz in Eina, Norway.
