Soft Rains uses custom computer software to control miniature cameras, set elements and recorded soundtracks to create and project a film. The installation is comprised of a series of tableaux "sound stages" placed throughout Eyebeam's facility and alongside a projection surface where viewers can see both the filmmaking process in action and its simultaneous result. The robotic set shoots and edits classic film-noir effects revealing the mechanisms behind the "magic" of cinema.

A9 Weekend In this new piece, Holmberg references the concepts behind his most recent work, Weekend,which was visually rooted in Jean-Luc Godard’s similarly titled film. Holmberg's Weekend re-contextualized Godard’s scene of a post-apocalyptic traffic jam by isolating and splicing together individual frames from the film to create one image which scrolls across the screen via slow pacing to match the original camerawork. Holmberg’s A9 Weekend uses street-level photographs found through Amazon’s A9.com map service to visualize Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, from both sides of the street. The images are composited into one image for each side of the street, running at the same pace as Godard’s Weekend using a tweening process.

Second Song: Live at Red Square
Alighiero Boetti inserted an “e” between his first and last name dividing his subject into two autonomous identities: Alighiero and (e) Boetti. His Twins, 1968 (a photomontage of the artist alongside a life-size copy of himself) signified an ironic gesture of authorial nominalism, a doubling of signatures, a destabilization of authorship and style. One becomes two; a twinning leads to an imaginary collaboration. In a world that operates within a system of regulated information (demographics, boundaries, history, language, etc.), this nameplay provides an insightful commentary on authenticity in an age of endless reproduction.

Ghost Jockey is a computer program that continually generates mashup audio and video. The program repeatedly swaps audio samples from a library, layers and aligns them by tempo and key, and makes decisions on volume levels. The visuals are created by running a Google image search on the name and artist of each sample, cycling through the results, and adjusting the brightness with the volume of each sample track; the result is multi-track layered images that pulse with the music.

Daniel Iglesia creates music and media for humans, computers, and broad interactions of the two. He is especially interested in live manipulations of sound and video, with notions of automation and algorithmic composition, the magnification of inherent chaos in sounds, and real-time media performance with traditional instruments. His works have taken the form of audio and video performance, instrumental works with live electronics, gallery installations, and collaborations with many disciplines such as theater and dance.
