James Perley is an American composer and interactive media artist. His electronic compositions are complex and improvised, leaving room for errors that may or may not become serendipitous and part of the performance. James’ performances exhibit “non-strategic strategy,” a compositional practice that examines subconscious creativity. This evening’s performance, set in a cozy house-concert venue, invites audience members to be immersed in recent performance works created during the artists residency in the city of Berlin.
Joining him for the evening’s performance is fellow Californian Greg Kappes. Greg is a composer, improvisor, and multimedia artist based in Oakland. His works explore data, mediation, and the posthuman in an effort to better understand the feedback loops that (in)form our being. Born/e out of the binary soup, his time-based works interact with and act on the audience/performer by amassing a variety of interfaces which highlight our relationships with technology and with each other. By co-opting tools of surveillance such as computer vision technologies, he hopes to situate technology not as a weapon of greed, but instead as an integral part of the (post)human, inseparable from and greed, but instead as an integral part of the (post)human, inseparable from and invaluable to our survival.
