Dear Friends of Troika Ranch:

Well, it has been since last spring when we premiered The Electronic
Disturbance since some of you have received email from us here at Troika
Ranch, but here is the latest news about our upcoming events.

-=-=-=-=- Upcoming NYC Event -=-=-=-=-

For those of you in the New York City area, we will be giving a lecture
demonstration at Harvestworks (596 Broadway, suite 602, Manhattan) on
November 8th, 1996 at 8pm. We will be showing the work we have been doing
on a new solo for the MidiDancer that we began developing while we were on
our residency at STEIM in Amsterdam this past September. More details can
be found on our web page at

-=-=-=-=- Revamped Web Site -=-=-=-=-

Since I mentioned the web site, I want to also announce that we have
revamped our web site, and will be continuing to make several changes over
then next couple of months. The top level can be found at:

One major addition is the web salon (info below.) Also, we are working on a
new section as a resource for artists and others who are particularly
interested in using emerging interactive computer technology in live
performance works. We will be announcing this new part of the website as
soon as it is ready for public viewing.

-=-=-=-=- The Troika Ranch Web Salon -=-=-=-=-

One major section that we have added to the site is the new Web Salon,
where we will be showing works that we have created specifically for the
World Wide Web. The first of these, called Yearbody, can be found at

Yearbody is a year-long dance piece designed to be experienced through our
web site. Each day, from November 1st, 1996 until October 31st, 1997, we
will present an image of one of the 365 shapes comprising the entire work.

Two events will mark the completion of the piece. First, the completed
series of images will be compiled into a Quicktime movie that can be
downloaded and played back by the viewer. Second, the shapes will be
performed live by the company members of Troika Ranch
