Big Robot, a computer-acoustic ensemble, will perform in Bowling Green on Feb. 25. The free, 8 p.m. show at the Clazel Theatre (127 N. Main St.) is part of the Music at the Forefront concert series sponsored by the MidAmerican Center for Contemporary Music at Bowling Green State University.

The trio creates live media-enriched art and music, interweaving aesthetic expression with computer interactivity and networked technology. With integration of audio/video design, live percussion and electronics, the group creates a multi-dimensional performance that explores the cross points of virtual and physical gesture, sound and space. Big Robot employs interactive processes such as motion tracking, acoustic instrument sampling, audio processing, integration of real-time video and the use of telecommunications software/devices.

The group performs in live venues as well as telematically over research-grade, high-bandwidth Internet from its studio. Big Robot has presented concerts and residencies throughout the United States since 2009.

Music at the Forefront is an annual concert series featuring performances by accomplished and innovative performers of contemporary music. For more information, contact Kurt Doles at at 419-372-2685 or kdoles@bgsu.edu.
