announce

9 Evenings: Theatre &
Engineering - a 10 DVD set of films on a
legendary series of theater, dance, music and
performances at the New York 69th Regiment Armory in
1966 by 10 New York artists: Robert Rauschenberg,
John Cage, David Tudor, Yvonne Rainer, Deborah Hay,
Robert Whitman, Steve Paxton, Alex Hay, Lucinda
Childs and =D6yvind Fahlstr=F6m.

----------------------------------------

In 1966 10 New York artists worked with 30 engineers
and scientists from the world renowned Bell
Telephone Laboratories to create groundbreaking
performances that incorporated new technology. Video
projection, wireless sound transmission, and Doppler
sonar - technologies that are commonplace today -
had never been seen in the art of the 60's. The 9
Evenings DVD Series is an important documentation of
the collaborations between the artists and engineers
that produced innovative works using these emerging
technologies. These performances still resonate
today, as forerunners of the close and
rapidly-evolving relationship between artists and
technology.

The DVDs =96 one on each artist=92s performance -- will
be released sequentially over the next two years
with the initial publication of the series: Robert
Rauschenberg - Open Score, available Feb 27, 2007,
followed by the second in the series: John Cage -
Variations VII, available June 26, 2007. Each
DVD will
be PAL and NTSC system compatible.

9 Evenings: Theatre & Engineering is recognized as a
major artistic event of the 1960s. The performances
represented the culmination of a period of
extraordinary creative energy in art, dance and
music in the late 1950s and early 1960s, and they
also pointed to the future, as artists began to use
new technology in their work. =20

9 Evenings was organized by Robert
Rauschenberg and
Billy Kl=FCver, then a research scientist at Bell
Laboratories in Murray Hill, New Jersey. It was held
at the 69th Regiment Armory in New York City from
October 13-23, 1966. As Billy Kl=FCver has written:=20
"9 Evenings was unique in the incredible richness
and imagination of the performances. The Armory
space allowed the artists to work on an
unprecedented scale, and their involvement with
technology and collaborations with the engineers
added a dimension of unfamiliarity and challenge.=20
They responded with major works."

9 Evenings was the first large-scale collaboration
between artists and engineers and scientists. The
two groups worked together for 10 months to develop
technical equipment and systems that were used as an
integral part of the artists=92 performances. Their
collaboration produced many "firsts" in the use of
new technology for the theater, both with
specially-designed systems and equipment and with
innovative use of existing equipment. Closed-circuit
television and television projection was used on
stage for the first time; a fiber-optics camera
picked up objects in a performer's pocket; an
infrared television camera captured action in total
darkness; a Doppler sonar device translated
movement into sound; and portable wireless FM
transmitters and amplifiers transmitted speech and
body sounds to Armory loudspeakers.

Using archival film footage and original sound
recordings, the 9 Evenings films reconstruct each
artist's performance as fully as possible; they also
contain new interviews with artists, engineers and
performers to illuminate the artistic, technical and
historical aspects of the works.=20

Performances are by nature ephemeral events; this
DVD series assures that the 9 Evenings will not be
lost but will be available to new generations of
dance and theater students as well as art scholars,
artists and the general public who will have a
concrete representation of what 9 Evenings looked
like and how it came to play such an important role
in American 20th century art.

The films on 9 Evenings are produced for E.A.T. by
Julie Martin and directed by Barbro Schultz
Lundestam. They are funded in part by generous gifts
from Robert Rauschenberg and the Robert Rauschenberg
Foundation as well as with support from the Daniel
Langlois Foundation for Art Science and Technology.

The 10 disc DVD series, 9 Evenings: Theatre &
Engineering, is co-produced by E.A.T. and ARTPIX and
will be distributed worldwide by Microcinema
International.

collaboration between artists and engineers to

with areas of social concern. =20
