Ben Neill performed selections from his Horizonal album at Ramapo College on April 20, 2016. After an introduction and historical background of his unique Mutantrumpet, he demonstrated the connection between the instrument and the computer system that produces the sound and video. None of the video is prerecorded: it is all generated live from his musical input. This is really worth seeing in person, as the video cannot capture the subtly and expresiveness of the moving visuals. The video below is one selection from this show.
