Scapegoat M62/ Derivations says
scapegoat is an experimental saxophone and percussion duo. Close creative collaboration and multi-media projects form the basis of their pursuit for artistic innovation and expression. Programmes are designed to broaden and challenge the musical experience of the audience, through original works featuring live electronics, performer-controlled sonic and visual amplification, video and lighting design, and improvisation. Formed in Paris in 2013 by Australian saxophonist Joshua Hyde and Canadian percussionist Noam Bierstone, scapegoat has performed in France, Germany and the UK. In May 2015, the duo has a residency at Harvard University's Radcliffe Institute to work with composer Mauricio Pauly and perform in his portrait concert as Radcliffe Fellow.This is to be followed by a North American tour of shows in Montreal, Toronto, Detroit, Chicago and New York, as well as workshops at CIRMMT (Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Music Media and Technology) and the Canadian Music Centre.

scapegoat's Detroit performance through Spread Art @detroitcontemporary will include performances of:

'm62' - new works created through a close collaboration project between scapegoat and three diverse UK-based composers: Emily Howard, Matthew Sergeant and Mauricio Pauly - who will be joining the duo on electronics.

'_derivations' - an interactive performance system designed by Ben Carey for use in improvisatory musical performance. Acting outside the direct control of any human operator, _derivations listens to the performance of its collaborators and uses this information to make decisions about its own contribution to the unfolding musical dialogue. The resulting interactions are often abstract, intricate and playful, and showcase the unique possibilities afforded by placing both human and machine on an equal footing in performance.

The performance will also feature collaborations with local sound, visual and movement artists:

Kimberly Sutton - Cello
Thomas Bell - Bass
Matthew Daher - Percussion
Rachael Ahn Harbert - Movement
Lisa Rose LaMarre Wilmot - Movement
Bubba Ayoub - Visuals

Doors - 8:30
Performance - 9:00
