Premiere performance of LIVEWARE, Nov. 20, 2017 at EMPAC

Liveware is a new performance duo comprised of Michael Century and Shawn Lawson, both Professors in the Rensselaer Arts Department. The name Liveware plays off a slang term that denotes the “human operator” in computer systems. Lawson is a practitioner of live-coding using graphics languages he developed himself. Century performs on piano and accordion, and uses software he developed allowing live manipulations. Programming assistance from Jeremy Stewart and Igor Carvalho. Performance assistance from Eric Miller.
