Included are two works for saxophone and electronics, brought to life by Eric Honour; “Concertina No. 1: Cathedrals” by Jessica Rudman and “Sugar Baby” by D. Edward Davis. Bassist Brian Padavic will play “This ‘B’ is for Brian” by David McIntire, and Brad Van Wick will sing John Chittum’s “I Do Good at Grammar.” Eli Hougland’s “Out of Focus, A Meditation” combines electronic music with video art. Joseph Post will also perform his own work on analog synth. The concert will be rounded out by two fixed media pieces, “Wretched Refuse of My Teeming Resonance” by Tyler Capp and “Shell Shocked” by Teri Ann Quinn.

Perceptions/Reality is a unique opportunity to hear electroacoustic works in an intimate setting. The live performances, visual elements, and compositions themselves will be a memorable experience for spectators.
