Black Box performance: "Gifts From Unknown Islands"

 CU Film Studies instructor, composer and sound designer Mark McCoin creates several multi-media visual/sound performance installations in the ATLAS Black Box. Multi-media technology includes: 
- Microscope camera projecting biological images onto large white spheres in real time 
- Multiple round screens simultaneously serving as drums and screens for montage of projected video and stills 
- Animated images projecting on animated 3D sculptural, shaped surfaces 
- Live hands playing rhythm duet with video hands 

McCoin commented on his production, "When the piece begins to reveal itself and take on it's own life, the ecstasy begins. Soon the work is telling you something important; perhaps something about your nature or past that is meaningful, and if you’re lucky, universal."

Several pieces will be accompanied with live music produced by musical guests.                                                    

The approximate 1.5 hour evening includes a talkback/discussion with artist/producer Mark McCoin.

The evening is free and open to the public.
Reservations recommended. Seating is first come, first served.
