DJ Scanner - Live in studio

(scannerdot.com)

Scanner - British artist Robin Rimbaud - traverses the experimental terrain between sound, space, image, and form, creating absorbing, multi-layered sound pieces that twist technology in unconventional ways.

He's in the Twin Cities to perform at the Spark Festival of Electronic Music and Art 2006. Scanner will give a scholarly lecture on his work, be interviewed and demo his process as part of the "Making Music" series, and will participate in a live Internet performance with DJs creating music in New York and sending it over the Internet to Minneapolis, where Scanner will mix the multiple feeds into a single live musical stream.

He stopped by The Current to preview some of his work and to speak with Mark Wheat:

Songs previewed: "An Anthem for Europa 25," "Excellation," and "Tuxedo Moon."
