Fans of experimental expression will be in for a treat this Saturday at Museum of the Moving Image, when I/O: An Evening of Multimedia Performance, makes its debut. Curated by Alex Nathanson and Will Owen, the eclectic event will feature dance, music, improvisation, and much more. From Alex himself:

MATA Interval presents I/O​, an evening of multimedia performance on Saturday March 7​, 7 p.m. at the Museum of the Moving Image​, curated by Alex Nathanson and Will Owen​.

Through dance, multi­continent internet­enabled improvisation, homemade instruments, and the natural electronic network of the body, sound and sight is linked in an evening that engages the complex interacting systems that are the host for modern life. Glitch Lich​, The Median Movement​, Fan Letters​, and Data Garden with Greg Fox and Friends join forces to present ambient, electronic, and electroacoustic works that tackle the centrality of networks in our lives and aesthetics.

Data Garden will be connecting bio-sensors to percussionist Greg Fox, which will be translated into midi data and manipulated by additional musicians. Glitch Lich will be performing simultaneously in NYC and China, via the internet utilizing custom made computer programs the artists built. Through modern dance and sound generating stage elements, The Median Movement will be delving into social networks. Fan Letters explores electro-mechanical networks in performance with specially designed instruments, computer programing and animation.”

Tickets are $15 and are available here.

The Museum of the Moving Image is located at 36-01 35th Ave. in Astoria.
