August 3, one night only

A one-night multimedia performance by The Night. The Night is a new media ensemble whose work focuses on the interrelations between sound and image, using musical improvisation and elegant computer programming that features real-time video that is changed and affected by the performance.

Formed in early 2003, the group consists of an ever changing group of musicians and artists, mostly Oberlin College graduates, including sitar player Ami K. Dang, video artist John Hensel, Travis Johns, who plays bass and electronics, and others. To date, their work has been featured in such places as the 2003 Placard Experimental Music Festival, The Spaceworks Gallery (NYC) and the Allen Memorial Art Museum.

They will preview their East Coast August tour with a performance here in Minneapolis at the Susan Hensel Gallery on August 3, 8pm-10pm. Free.

Travis Johns work can be heard on Fighter Pilots, available from iTunes
