DATE: Thursday, May 28, 2020
WHERE: Zoom (Virtual)
The Washington DC Chapter of ACM SIGGRAPH is proud to present, JC Cantrell, Master of Music and Well-Being from George Mason University. Mr. Cantrell will be discussing the processes and techniques he used with Zoom to create a multi-media project for the George Mason Healing Arts Ensemble.
As a project for the George Mason Healing Arts Ensemble, Mr. Cantrell directed and produced a Zoom multimedia presentation consisting of a triptych with 3 movements intended to ease the effects of Covid-19 on the culture. The interactive video integrates live music performed virtually by musicians playing exotic instruments. Mr. Cantrell will show the 3rd movement of the piece entitled “Awakenings” following the technical discussion.
The meeting will be hosted on the Zoom platform. A link to the meeting will be provided 30 minutes prior to the presentation to all those who have responded to the announcement on our MeetUp. Those who do not RSVP to the MeetUp announcement will not receive the link to the meeting.
Please join us on Thursday, May 28, 2020 from 7pm to 9pm on our first virtual interactive presentation to hear Mr. Cantrell discuss how Zoom can be used to bring musicians together virtually in an uplifting performance.
