12-string Guitarist, Neil Jacobs in Concert

World renowned guitarist, Neil Jacobs returns to the Alfred community with a 3-day residency and performance featuring his unique brand of World Music. Neil will lecture to the Cultural Competency in Music course on Wed. Sept. 28 at 3:20, and is and will present a Bergren Forum at 12:10 in Nevins Theater, Thursday, September 29th.

Neil's personal experiences performing in refugee camps in Bosnia and the Balkans following the Balkan War inspired him to study the treasured Sevdalinka music of Bosnia. He caught the attention of Bosniak writer Edib Kadic in Sarajevo who conducted an extensive interview, which led to a five page STAV Magazine article on Neil Jacobs published in Sarajevo in 2020. The article outlines Neil's diverse musical history and explains how he became fascinated by Sevdah music.

His residency will culminate in a solo performance on Friday, September 30 at 7:30 pm in Miller Theater. This concert is free and open to the public.

Glitch Dolls

"Glitch Dolls" is a multi-channel video installation piece exploring the intersection of digital fashion and glitch processing techniques. I was inspired to create this series from my love for collecting vintage Ken Dolls. I wanted to play with modeling the dolls and their clothing, taking textures I created using different glitch processes. To create the textiles, I used digital and analog glitch methods including: analog video feedback, datamoshing, sonification, and creative coding. The dolls and their clothing are meant to evoke fantasy and the potential of digital fashion.

Micah Alhadeff is a 3D and glitch artist who explores the anatomy and "DNA" of digital representations of the body using glitch processing techniques. He uses 3D programming combined with augmented reality and virtual reality as both the tool and subject of these investigations. Alhadeff has shown his work at Colorado State University and Front Range Community College, and he has presented his scholarly investigations about clothing and queerness at the Denver Art Museum. Micah exhibits and sells NFTs of his work on OBJKT.com, a cryptocurrency art marketplace on the Tezos blockchain. His collections have been featured in curated digital exhibitions of rare NFTs including "Can't Touch It!" Alhadeff is an MFA candidate at Alfred University in Electronic Integrated Arts. This show will be on display in the Snodgrass/TSI Gallery until September 24th.
