Friday and Saturday's BLOrk gig was quite fantastic - but for an unexpected reason. From the first BLOrk I visited to this one that I participated in, the programs have changed massively. Originally, it followed the script of a standard computer music program: piece-after-piece, focused on the presentation of new works, and limited audience (or even performer) interaction.
This gig was completely different; with dancers, a jazz band, computer works that included both the performers and the audience. I had a lot of friends (including my whole family) see the show, and everyone walked away smiling and discussing the wide range of programming that was included. Congrats to John Gunther for putting together a great show - digital vaudeville alors!
