Two Twin Cities–based artists teamed up virtually to present a spontaneous, live performance film. Musician and sound artist Jay Afrisando was in his home studio and interdisciplinary artist Lee Noble was in the Walker’s McGuire Theater. They met virtually to create an improvisational digital film in real time.

Lee Noble employs a live-mixed collage running in free video switching software with a combination of pre-recorded, collected, and live components.
