Violinist Kevin Rogers performed Digital Musics graduate student Alex Wroten’s newest piece, “Knockoffs,” at the Hot Air Music Festival at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music on Sunday, February 6, 2011. Wroten’s piece juxtaposes a variety of pre-rendered synthesized and sampled electronic violin timbres with live acoustic violin performance to explore the relationship between “real” and “fake” violin sounds.
Rogers premiered “Knockoffs” on Friday, January 21, 2011 for his own Masters degree recital at Kaleidoscope Free Speech Zone in San Francisco. Wroten attended this premiere and documented the performance, which you can view below.
