Recording: Tanya Goncalves

Artist: Tanya Goncalves

Song: [excerpt from an improvisation]

Recorded at The Tranzac's Southern Cross Lounge ("troubleshooting~ v3"), July 1, 2015.

Tanya Goncalves - [excerpt from an improvisation]

A new face to the Troubleshooting scene, Mississauga's Goncalves brought some serious computer music chops to the show, as well as a bit of a performative flair, plugging her laptop into a projector so the crowd could watch her (surprisingly engaging) real-time command-line modifications in her SuperCollider interface. In the true spirit of the series, this piece ended not with a graceful fade to mirror the elegant build that began the set but instead with a sudden halt as her system crashed. At Troubleshooting nights, that's not a bug — it's a feature. [The night also ended with a group improvisation, which you can check out here.]

[Troubleshooting will return to the Tranzac on Wednesday, August 5th.
