The ensemble showcased the talents of students from the FAU Advanced Interactive Multimedia Class, mixing live video, Quicktime clips, and Flash to a soundtrack that examined current events (human trafficking, Soldja Girl), dream imagery, and glossolalia (speaking in tongues). Videojams by Nina O, Masta Mia, and Frantz DeoFils. Prof. Bargsten got an opportunity to demonstrate his mad iPod Touch skillz on a solo for BeBot, the singing robot, too.
