As I Live and Breathe - Quadraphonic Audiovisual Live Performance

On Sunday, April 30, 2023, the Lafayette Electronic Arts Festival, Media Manifesta, and KGNU's Electronic Air are honored to present pioneering experimental electronic music composer Morton Subotnick, and Berlin-based visual artist Lillevan, performing live in immersive quadraphonic sound. Having worked together for the last twelve years, the technique and process of Subotnick and Lillevan has culminated in the work, “As I Live and Breathe.” Subotnick has stated that he feels this work will be “the ultimate fulfillment of his public performance; one of the last, if not the last, of his public performance works,” as he turns 90 years old this year. The work is centered around Subotnick’s breath, which becomes ever more musically and visually ornamented by Lillevan, only to end with a single, exhaled breath. The work is meant as a musical metaphor for the composer’s life in music. 


Important Info:

Location: The Arts HUB, 420 Courtney Way, Lafayette, CO 80026

Seating is General Admission.

Time: Doors at 7PM, Performance at 7:30PM

Doors means doors to the venue. If you arrive earlier, there will be a line outside of the building to honor arrival time because of General Admission seating. If the weather is bad, we'll let people into the lobby, but we will not be able to guarantee first-come, first-served seating.

All tickets are 'will-call' - there will be 3 people at a table checking you in, please have an ID ready and all members of your party (everyone you purchased a ticket for under your name) present.

The show has SOLD OUT. There will be NO TICKETS FOR SALE AT THE DOOR so if you have a friend who decides last minute to tag along, we cannot accomodate that.

No Alcohol will be available at the venue. We will have free bottled and canned water. We'd recommend that you visit one of Lafayette's fine eateries and/or drinkeries prior to the show. Everything is close by.

Parking: There is plenty of FREE parking at and near the venue. Please respect local businesses, but the fact that it is a Sunday should mean that will not be a constraint.

Today is also the last day to see the Sync exhibit - curated by Debora Bernagozzi of Signal Culture as part of LEAF 2023. The address for the gallery is - The Collective Community Arts Center, 201 N. Public Road, Lafayette, CO 80026. The show features world-class electronic media art and the venue is open from Noon til 5PM, so take in the exhibit, have some dinner and then head on over to see Mort and Lillevan play.

See you at the show!
