i organize a festival in NYC called In/Out Fest which is all about open source programming and controller design for audio/visual performance. we are gearing up for the 2010 addition and i'd like to invite you all aboard!
The Tank is accepting proposals for:
In/Out 2010: Digital Performance Festival
In/Out is an annual festival that features leading performers, developers, artists, and tinkerers of the digital design community in hopes bridging the gap between the forum based world and the stage. The festival seeks to bring digitally driven performances into the limelight with two full days of workshops and performances.
We invite programmers, visualists, hardware hackers, electronics gurus, musicians, and novices to take part in the events of In/Out. With workshops to encourage others to join in the fray and inspiring performances, this is not only the time for those interested in the constantly changing field to get involved, but for current members of the community to step up their game as well.
The boundary pushing festival is produced by the Tank, a humble non-profit performing arts presenter located in Manhattan. In addition to In/Out, the Tank also produces the legendary Bent and Blip festivals as well as nightly performances from New York City's finest emerging artists.

In/Out is searching for musicians, visualists, dancers, and performers who have integrated digital technologies into their work. From building custom controllers to creating their own software, or users of new technology, we want it! Submit a brief description of your performance along with a sample of your work.
If at all possible, we would greatly appreciate proposal materials in the form of hyperlinks. Live performance videos are preferred.
Workshops + Lectures:
Help motivate the vanguard by leading a workshop in new media for audio/video performance. Past workshops have included: working in Jitter, building drum machines in Reaktor, and code driven music composition with Processing. In/Out is especially interested in hands on, kit based, and introductory workshops.
Please submit a brief description of what you would like to teach or share, along with any work you have done, are doing, or will do in the field.
