New Media New Music New England and the Hartford Sound Alliance presented THE SYNC EFFECT, a program of new music works inspired by the video work of Gene Gort, Devan Mulvaney and Liz Stephens. In keeping with the long tradition of producing sound for moving pictures, composers Lief Ellis, Matt Sargent, Daryl Seaver, Bill Solomon and Ken Steen have written an evening of new works of acoustic and electronic music to be performed live with video projection. Instrumentation includes percussion, slide guitars, electric bass, ukulele, voice, cello, saxophones and trombone. Selections from Gene Gort's video series, "Still Lifes + Silent Movies", Devan Mulvaney's "Faintly Reflected Upon" and Liz Stephens' "1010" are featured.
Hartford Sound Alliance was a collective of Hartford, CT based composers and performers dedicated to the creation, performance and promotion of new music via composition, improvisation and sound installation, as well as intermedia and interdisciplinary projects.
