Following last week’s sonic.focus.3 conference, we are happy to welcome renowned German electronic musician Atom™ (Uwe Schmidt) to Brown for a conversation and performance. On Monday, September 22, he will discuss his recent work, including his album “HD” (Raster-Noton, 2013) and the unique live performances, entitled “HD/AV,” that draw from it, as well as his “Winterreise” album (Raster-Noton, 2011) and the photo series of the same name in a conversation with Tony Cokes and Andrew Lison. The following evening, he will perform a version of “HD/AV” alongside students and alumni from Brown’s MEME department presenting their own works.
