Musique-concrete, 1970s-space-jazz, and ultra-low-fidelity-electronica meet in a dark alley. Nonplussed, they wander around together for a bit and stumble upon Plentiful Pseudoacting, Creepy Black-and-White 16mm Short Films, Detached Instant Messenger Conversations, a Pointless PowerPoint Presentation, and quite a few grains of salt.
Tuesday Afternoon at China Wong Buffet is an elaboration on a well-known fairy tale, retold using conventions established by 20th-century performance artists and composers.
The performances, which took place in spring 2004, involved collaboration between more than fifty students, faculty, and staff of a wonderful little liberal arts college and the surrounding community.
Three performances of this two-hour-fifteen-minute piece took place, involving live and pre-produced music, acting, numerous short films, instantmessenger conversations, a powerpoint presentation, and interactive video.
Over the following year — summer 2004 through spring 2005 — post-production work ensued, resulting in a DVD edition of the piece.
The DVD edition combines pre-production video, video shot at all three performances, and extensive post-production compositing and computer graphics work.
