live.media+performance lab -day1
This post is to introduce myself to the other participants.
My name is Victoria Gibson and I live in Vancouver Canada.
I am an Integrated Media Artist with core training in music and audio technology, but an irrepressible curiosity in computer based arts.
My current day job is as the Publishing Support Executive for a major publishing company where I manage projects, art direct for magazines and continue in a limited way with graphic design and layout. I have been a graphic designer and digital artist for decades.
My expertise spans visual art, music, video and the associated technologies to create, edit, produce and publish in print, DVD or web.
I am happy to introduce people to the Ubuntu operating system and the satisfaction of freely available, open source software. I also work in Mac and Windows OS.

My last performance in Vancouver Aug 12th, included notebook computer audio and vocal live performance with a group of other musicians and spoken word artists. Collaborations: http://vix.ca/blog/2010/08/12/collaborations-tonight-1-night-only/
I regularly perform as a vocalist, guitar player and computer audio specialist. I am moving into live video and that is the reason I wanted to investigate Isadora.
If you would like to collaborate with me or use some of my equipment, please contact me vgibson (at) vix (dot) ca
I will post the photos from the performances yesterday ASAP!
