A real-time performance on digital and analog computers with Michael Sterling on Moog synthesizer during the second Electronic Visualization Event, EVE II, in 1976. EVE I and EVE II were the first events of their kind in the world as computer artists and electronic musicians performed their technological and artistic abilities together live before audiences of a thousand people during each evening’s performance. These performances were held in an electronic sculptural and acoustic environment within a four-story rotunda with multi-monitor displays, an inflatable structure that housed a large-screen video projector and four channels of sound at the University of Illinois at Chicago Circle Campus.
Circle 9 Sunrise was part of the second Electronic Visualization Event, EVE II, in 1976.
