The data and tension, tdat for short, is a family of vocal systems music compositions. All of them involve more than two streams of simultaneous text. They are a bit like games.

From Joe’s blog:

we recorded the evening of 25.5.09, after dinner and wine.  we improvised mic stands from spring clamps and pop filters from spandex.  we hung a condenser from the light fixture.  it was good fun.

Today I performed, together with my classmates, Ted “Tedbot” Hayes, Kristen Smart, and Elizabeth Fuller, a spoken-word vocal quartet piece called tdat that was part of Joe Mariglio’s ITP thesis.  From Joe’s site:

Check out the video of Joe’s thesis; the performance is towards the end.
