On Saturday, October 8, Big Robot performed a concert at Lala Gallery in West Lafeyette as part of the E3 Series for Improvisation Performance. The E3 Series hosts live performances by artists who feature improvisation. The series brings in artists from various art disciplines, including music, dance, and spoken word. Don Nichols, one of the event’s coordinators and a percussionist, improvised a piece with Big Robot before the group played their set. Members of the Telematic Collective assisted Big Robot in creating a networked environment to perform their multimedia works. More information about the E3 Series for Improvisation Performance can be found at http://pmpd.org/E3.htm.
