5:30 to 9 p.m., Live in the Track One warehouse: Carl Oliver Synthesis, free

As you walk through the sliding doors to the warehouse at Track One, you hear echoes of music. A figure lit by a single lamp stands in the center of the room, surrounded by nests of patch cables, electronic modules and keyboards. That figure is Carl Oliver, and he's performing a longform modular synth improvisation. Walk around the giant room and explore its natural reverb as the music interacts with the space. Check back throughout the night to hear how the improv evolves.


7 - 9 p.m., continuing at Seed Space: Matt Gilbert's "Font Flowers" and Travis Janssen's "Conversion/Convergence", free

Matt Gilbert's "Font Flowers" are a series of prints which examine typography design. By rearranging the curves of different letter fonts into abstract flower-like forms, Gilbert brings attention to the aesthetic considerations and technical constructions of fonts that often go unnoticed.

Travis Janssen's multi-media installation "Conversion/Convergence" consists of a series of prints and a projection filtered through an altered box fan, creating a hypnotic pinwill image of rainbow colors on a wall. In referencing the RGB color model prevalent in modern technology, "Conversion/Convergence" addresses the mechanics and physics behind technology and the notion of light in an abstract fashion.

9 p.m., afterparty at Track One, free
