Artist Statement:


“Excerpts from EYE SLING SHOT LIONS” is an interactive digital composition conceived and constructed around the Quicklime Media Layer, Max2, and Supercard technologies. During live performance, a melange of typography, sound, video fragments, interactive digital video, simulated live performance, short films, and pop music is controlled via Ml DI and and interwoven with live poetry, sub-urban hip-hop, and spoken-word texts. Custom built interface elements link Elliott to computer-controlled video and typography, through extensive use of piezoelectric elements. Utilizing CD-ROM and LCD projection, “Excerpts from EYE SLING SHOT LIONS” is programmed to be modal. Not only is it a performance, it’s a product … a shiny disc full of ones and zeros ready to be taken home the night of the performance and put into your Walkman2 or your Mac. “EYE SLING SHOT LIONS” is the follow up to Elliott’s critically acclaimed CD Plus “Throwing apples at the Sun.”
