From Naval’s Notes:
Mr. Cassidy has created his first graphic score for his latest take on Instant Cinema. Its title will remain a secret, even to himself, until after the piece has been performed. However, the short history of this new work is no mystery. In fact, thanks to Adam Kendall’s fabulous Video Composer’s Workshop at Diapason Gallery, Naval has been hard at work converting a hand drawn score of eight voices into five electronic midi scores that manipulate different parts of his video and audio mix. The three voices left are to be read by his fellow performers; two on camera, one on AM radio; plus various shtick in between the sections to cleanse your palette.

Bring sunglasses.

Scientists and artists alike are concerned that the third meeting of
Naval Cassidy and Michael Evans might cause unusual sun spot activity. The
first meeting was said to have caused spontaneous birthing from unwed
mothers. The second meeting caused a temporary dislocation in the
space/time continuum surrounding Judson Church. Sound ripples and light
waves that emanated from these two separately have cause economic and
social disruption throughout the city. United again to face a well-daunted
public, you can see a troubled sun waiting for extra excitation.

Michael Evans is an improvising drummer/percussionist/thereminist/composer
whose work investigates and embraces the collision of sound and theatrics.
Besides being a drum set player, his work with unusual sound sources
includes found objects, homemade instruments,various digital and
homemade analog electronics. He has worked with a wide variety of artists
nationally and internationally. http://www.michaelevanssounds.com

This event presents a unique live video performance which blends unusual found objects, improvisational visual collage, and a warped sense of humor. new york artist jonathan giles performs as ‚Äúnaval cassidy‚Äôs instant cinema.‚ÄĚ naval uses video cameras to capture and magnify small props which he then manipulates while he projects the images. in this real-time spectacle, naval pulls delirious visions out of discarded broken objects, simply by placing each one under the watchful eye of his surveillance cameras. this special program is a collision of damaged human collateral and broken, forgotten artifacts of today’s age gone tomorrow.

Naval Cassidy has been a live cinema and sound performer for over fifteen years. working solo, or with groups like stackable thumb and the hands of orlak, he has been a consistent presence in New York’s live video and performance scene.

‚ÄėBrooklyn Compendium‚Äô at vBrooklyn Festival

Category: Uncategorized

Naval Cassidy performs at vBrooklyn: A video festival about Brooklyn as a place and video as an art form.

Friday & Saturday, December 12 & 13, 2008, at Polytechnic University, Brooklyn

Naval on Saturday, December 13, 2008, 8pm

Naval has taken his search for ignored and forgotten places to a much larger area of Brooklyn. Traveling by bicycle, you can really find yourself off the beaten path, and that’s just what he was looking for. Of course, there’s plenty of well beaten territory in this compendium as well; just taken from NC’s slightly skewed perspective. Colliding and blending with a melange of peculiar objects selected specifically for this event, Naval’s special blend of Instant Cinema will tease moldy dreams and bittersweet memories from the dust of pocked streets, empty factories, and sagging traffic lights.

Complete schedule at http://vbrooklyn.hellbender.org

Presented in cooperation with the Integrated Digital Media Institute, Forward Motion Theater and Harvestworks

Naval apologizes.¬† Unfortuanately, he has run out of time to put the finishing touches on his new work.¬† His chronograph that measures time in sputters and spurts, a homage to the Zimmer Tower in Lier, Belgium, will have to wait.¬† Instead, he presents “Requiem for a Counterweight,” something he hopes will help you all get your bearings.

Naval Cassidy has been an instant cinema and sound performer for over fifteen years. Working solo, or with groups like Stackable Thumb and The Hands of Orlak, or his recent collaborations with the great percussionist/foley artist Michael Evans, he has been a consistent presence in New York’s live video and performance scene. Through his special blend of video performance, Instant Cinema, Naval pulls delirious visions out of discarded broken objects, simply by placing each one under the watchful eye of his surveillance cameras.

From Unitygain website:

“NYC‚Äôs first dedicated realtime audio visual salon (1998) returns to MonkeyTown
for a ‚Äúround robin‚ÄĚ evening of quality live electronic audio visual duets‚Ķ
In some cases this means one partner makes sound and the other image…
In other cases both partners may each contribute sound & image…

These days they‚Äôve begun to call this kind of thing ‚ÄúLive Cinema‚ÄĚ (in Europe at least) – not an ideal identifier but better than most alternatives – we still prefer: ‚Äúrealtime electronic audio-visual performance‚ÄĚ for now‚Ķ although even we know this is too long for anyone to actually say‚Ķ

Whatever it‚Äôs called please join us.”

Scientists and artists alike are concerned that the second meeting of

public, you can smell the gray matter sizzling.
