(A previous version of the system was in residence at ISSUE Project Room in New York). Please join us for the inaugural event of the CLEAT system and the Spring 2020 Elastro Season, with 16-channel performances by Jason Soliday and Stephan Moore. Further 16-channel events will occur throughout Spring and Summer 2020, and artists of all backgrounds and experience levels are encouraged to speak with Stephan and Elastic about composing and performing for the CLEAT system!
