Chad McKinney (USA) & LAG
is a recent work by Lag that utilizes our custom made Medusa System.
This system allows the performers to collaborate together across the internet to create and manipulate feedback matrices. In particular Neuromedusae II focuses on feedback between several impulse response based SuperCollider synths. During the performance Curtis McKinney will be present in Berlin while the other members are distributed across the Unites States. www.lagensemble.com
