_IRL: [on_network_performativity]

CCA Main Theater
Free

_IRL is an experimental durational performance using ORCA, an esoteric live-coding environment. The semi-generative soundscape is authored daily in real-time over the course of a month as an unfolding expression of conditions set by the artist. _IRL considers the affordances of contemporary live-streamed performance and reflects on such themes as “liveness,” immediacy, and access. Referring to the novel coding practice of Cellular Automata, the code behaves as a colony of living creatures that evolve and flourish sonorously despite arbitrary rules and remotely imposed aesthetics.
