Spontaneous Fantasia in Seattle
For eight years, J-Walt has been amazing audiences with his unique performances that blend music, theatre, visual art and technology, and in August 2011 he brings Spontaneous Fantasia to Seattle. His newest show, The Omnicentric Universe, plays at West of Lenin for four performances August 31, 2011 through September 3, 2011.

J-Walt is a performer, interactive designer, filmmaker, graphic artist, and composer at the forefront of interactive art and computer performance, expanding the uses of computer animation into uncharted territories. In March of 2006, he won a Technical Academy Award for his development of a real-time pre-visualization system. Spontaneous Fantasia is a new form of entertainment that draws on J-Walt's diverse background.

"With my performances, I take literally the meaning of the word 'animation': making images come to life," says J-Walt. "I use my drawing skills to give directions to computer programs I've written. I aim to capture the sensitivity of gesture, but I also use techniques that amplify and augment the gestures. The wave of the arm or the stroke of the pen is my foundation, but the effect is much more. My creative process for these pieces is to continually shift between painting, programming, composing music, and performing. My goal is to create a wholly integrated experience for the eye, ear, and mind."

The result is performances that are difficult to articulate and impossible to forget. The LA Times called Spontaneous Fantasia "Indescribably delicious!" and the LA Times declared it "A head-spinning good time." Though impossible to replicate in two dimensions, video clips of J-Walt's performances can be found at www.spontaneousfantasia.com.
