ARTIST BIO
The Vu-Karpen Project is a highly experimental ensemble, formed to explore and invent new methods of creating works of complex, instinctive, and dramatic new music. The project, which also includes live computer interaction, seeks to make some important discoveries while developing an exciting concert-length work built on the foundations and traditions of Jazz and Western Classical Art Music. The project is led by two University of Washington School of Music faculty, both internationally renowned for their innovative music making: Cuong Vu, a trail-blazing Jazz trumpeter/band leader/composer, and Richard Karpen, a leading composer and computer music pioneer who also plays piano in the ensemble. The Project also includes Ted Poor on drums and Luke Bergman on electric bass. Ted Poor is rapidly becoming widely admired and sought after internationally for his powerful, virtuosic, and intellectually intense drumming. Luke Bergman is a rising star in the Jazz scene and a graduate of the UW Jazz Studies Program.

Nicolas Varchausky's "La biblioteca ciega", has been nominated for Prix Ars Electronica 2012 - Interactive Art

February 01 2012

"La biblioteca ciega", a site-specific sound art performance by Nicolas Varchausky has been nominated by one of this year's jury members for Prix Ars Electronica 2012, in the Interactive Art category. The piece was commissioned by Secretaría de Cultura de La Nación Argentina for the old reading room of the former National Library, once ran by Borges, and uses a series of instruments that turn light into sound. Mechanical photo-sensitive turntables, sonic backlights and bars of light are manipulated by members of the National Orchestra of Blind Musicians and expanded through live electronics into a 3D surround sound space.
