Renate and I want to thank Lynn Sachs and Alan Sondheim for stimulating a
provocative discussion of the toggles between analogue and digital.  Their
own work has been at the forefront of conceptual and narrative
experimentations with mixed medial formats, and we're appreciative of
their very thoughtful reflections on their work and processes.

On Thursday we will celebrate the opening of the ETC show at Hunter
College in New York City, compromised of ETC tapes and ephemera held in
the Rose Goldsen Archive of New Media Art. If you can brave the gridlock
caused by the Pope and his politician buddies from the UN, we hope to see
you down in the artsy quiet of Tribeca on Thursday night.

This week were are happy to feature two artists who have been prominent
over the years of ETC, Peer Bode and Benton C Bainbridge, as well as
Deborah Bernagozzi and Jason Bernagozzi who have picked up the ETC
tradition through their residency program, also in tiny Owego, New York,
Signal Culture.  Jason worked with Dave Jones to design a emulated Paik
'wobbulator' that will be on display in the Hunter College show (which
runs through November).  Also joining us is one of the preeminent
theoreticians of video art and cinema, Maureen Turim from the University
of Florida.  It was Maureen, during her years as a film professor at SUNY
Binghamton, who first took me over to Owego for a screening at ETC in the
waning months of the 1970s where I was stunned by the creative
abstractions pulsating before my wide eyes.  So it's with particular
pleasure that we welcome Maureen to -empyre- within the broader interface
that is ETC Today.

BENTON C BAINBRIDGE (US) is a media artist based in the Bronx. Working
with custom systems of his own design,
Bainbridge creates  immersive environments, interactive installations and
digital time-based artworks. He is best known for his visual performance
projects, both solo and in collaboration with a wide range of artists,
from pop musicians to underground legends. Bainbridge's commitment to
processes was nurtured through numerous residencies, and with the support
of, Experimental Television Center. Career highlights include video art
and VJ'ing
for two Beastie Boys world tours, analog video synthesizer FX for TV On
The Radio's "Staring at the Sun" music video, and Whitney Museum's
best-attended live event with video ensemble The Poool. Bainbridge's work
Bainbridge's live video collaborations will be exhibited in the HCAG.
Benton will also conduct a video synthesis workshop for ETC, then perform
audiovisuals in collaboration with PhillipStearns.
