Error: A Comedy Of – Selected Scenes

Autokorrect – Face Sync Improv
Live cartoon improv with Technodramatists in-house troupe. This rotating group of up-and-coming NYC improv talent incorporates WeARlive Black Box into their repertoire of spontaneous scenes, games and absurdity, creating an improv show with never before seen visual comedic possibilities. Autokorrect is the most animated improv show the world has ever seen (and they only half-apologize for that joke)
WeARlive Black Box is Technodramatists’ consumer level face sync performance app. 

Sway – Autonomous Music Performance
Sway is an interactive live electronic processing environment, created by multi-instrumentalist and composer Carl Testa, who will compose and perform an original set of electro-acoustic experimental music. As Testa plays the stand up bass, Sway’s processor analyzes the tone, density and amplitude of his performance and generates a dynamic musical collage that responds to changes in real-time. 

The event will also feature interactive art and storytelling exhibits from some of Technodramatists’ friends and creative partners.
