    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.

about

project ruori Athens, Ohio

project ruori is an art-automation coalescence
superimposing structure upon interstellar dust
densely connected to the post-communist groove.

we steal holiday favorites,
beepy-beepy noises,
surreal visuals,
NO RICHARD WAGNER WHATSOEVER,
and
here and there
a few cordless green ideas,
to harass observers
with an electrifying sensory trauma.

(It's easier than it looks.)
