Join Eric Laska (US) and Roc Jimenez de Cisneros (ES) for an investigatory listening session and conversation into presets. Though presets have become common place in contemporary music and sound work, they are very rarely examined in terms of how they shape the dual processes of both composing and listening. Each artist will share some of their own material culled from presets and divulge their thinking behind the sound through conversation with each other and the public.

His work has been featured in venues such as Eyebeam Art + Technology Center, New York; Machine Project, Los Angeles; Ausland, Berlin; MACO, Oaxaca; San Serriffe, Amsterdam; and online at Gauss PDF and Ear | Wave | Event. He is founding editor of the online audio journal Lateral Addition which seeks to enrich the discourses surrounding contemporary sound practices and a co-founder of the project space Remote Viewing in Philadelphia.
