CAL Newsletter: November 28, 2018
Technology and the Arts at Stevens
Students, faculty and alumni all lent their voices to the above video, focusing on how CAL'S Music & Technology and Visual Arts & Technology programs launch students into successful careers across creative industries. The video was designed with recruitment in mind, so please feel free to share!
Where Shadows Slumber
Check out the latest trailer for Where Shadows Slumber, a mobile game developed by CAL alumni. Now available on Google Play and the App Store, this puzzle-filled adventure follows Obe, an older gentleman who sets off on one last journey using a mysterious lantern that he found.
The game was developed by Game Revenant, an independent studio founded by Visual Arts & Technology alumnus Frank DiCola. Stevens alumni Jack Kelly and Caroline Amaba played significant roles in the game and company's success as well.
A Universal Basic Income: Is It a Good Idea?
Coming up today is the semester's final Humanities Forum, in which Michael Steinmann will discuss universal basic income, the idea of providing periodic and unconditional payment made to all people.
Performing as a one-woman electroacoustic band, Lanie Fefferman will premiere White Fire, a "feminist meditation on her Jewish heritage through processed vocals and live electronics." Created with the support of Issue, Nokia Bell Labs and alumna Danielle McPhatter, Fefferman's new tool, a multichannel live-streaming network, will bring the audience into the performance by making use of their personal electronics.
The night will also include The Deformation of Figures and Between Truly Equal Beings, presented by Seth Cluett and performed by Tim Feeney and Morgan Evans-Weiler respectively.
