 2nd Morning Conference presented by the Daniel Langlois Foundation

The artists and engineers of 9 Evenings: Theatre and Engineering, New York, 1966 Saturday, October 28, 2006,
10:30 a.m., Fellini Theatre, Ex-Centris Complex, 3536 St-Laurent Blvd., Montreal. Doors open at 10:00 a.m. - no reserved seating. Free admission. Passes available (maximum 2 per person) beginning October 14, 2006, at the Festival du nouveau cinéma box office, located at the Just for Laughs Museum.

The Daniel Langlois Foundation joins the Festival du nouveau cinéma in presenting its second Morning Conference, with Ms. Clarisse Bardiot, a 2005 researcher in residence at the Foundation's Centre for Research and Documentation (CR+D).

Ms. Clarisse Bardiot will present the findings of her research into 9 Evenings: Theatre and Engineering. This unprecedented event brought together the two seemingly different worlds of artists and engineers in a "new media" experience before the term itself even existed. The conference will feature photos, plans and diagrams, excerpts of film shot during the performances, and the Web site created by Ms. Clarisse Bardiot and the Foundation during her residency.

 Research Results: And then it was now, by Frances Dyson

Each year, the Grants for Researchers in Residence program provides two researchers with an opportunity to work at the Foundation's Centre for Research and Documentation (CR+D) as well as access to its archive fonds and collections.

Frances Dyson (Ph.D.) was a CR+D researcher in residence in 2004. She primarily focused her work on the 9 Evenings: Theatre and Engineering fonds and the collection of documents published by Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.). In this publication, Dyson analyzes the discourse on art and technology and the social utopias surrounding E.A.T. projects between 1966 and 1972. Ms. Dyson also examines the aspect of sound in the performances of John Cage, Alex Hay and David Tudor during 9 Evenings: Theatre and Engineering, held in 1966.
