On Friday, April 27, We Are Architects presents Level Festival, a six-hour opening night celebration of Level, a new exhibition of independent video games that explore human lifestyles and behavior. An exciting interweaving of multi-sensory experiences, Level Festival will feature a range of art and events. Alongside the exhibition's debut of a wide variety of video games in an immersive, arcade-style environment, Level Festival will feature a booth of vintage games and systems by local game enthusiast boutique Pastime Legends and genre bending electronic music. This exhibition of independent video games and other media works also features the game "Everyday The Same Dream" by Paolo Pedercini (RPI MFA 2009) with music by Jesse Stiles (RPI MFA 2003). With support  from iEAR Presents!Level Festival features four intriguing performances by musicians that work in a range of electronic sounds, unconventional instrumentation, and take influence from games and other facets of pop culture. Level Festival performers include Evidence (Stephan Moore and Scott Smallwood), Matthew Carefully (Matthew Loiacono), Bubblyfish (Haeyoung Kim), and Extreme Animals (Jacob Ciocci and David Wightman).

Evidence is a collaboration between sound artists Stephan Moore and Scott Smallwood. Since 2001, they have developed a distinctive language of deeply layered sound, using field recordings of natural and industrial sounds as a primary source of inspiration and sonic material. Their activities range from studio compositions and live improvisations to sound installations, street performances, and numerous collaborations with other musicians, choreographers, and video artists. Recent projects include the participatory performance/installation "Receiver", which broadcasts multi-channel compositions on several closely-tuned FM frequencies to a radio-wielding audience and "Losperus", a performance of unstable sound sculptures, fashioned from discarded household materials.

This event is made possible with public funds from the RPI Arts Department and New York State Council on the Arts
