Cranbrook 2D design artist in residence Elliott Earls performs his new multimedia work Bull and Wonded Horse this Saturday at the Music Hall in Detroit, with DJs Team Dorkwave and Kosta Stratigos a.k.a. The Goose Commander.

Robotic Drums and Guitar, Interactive digital video, and electronics comingle in a melange of pop songs, spoken word poetry and acoustic music. Elliott will be performing with his new acoustic ensemble "The Venemous Sons of Jonah," creating a strange brew of robotic and completely organic music.

Produced in Association with Cranbrook Academy of Art, the 2006 Capacitor Festival is an evening of performance and installation that focuses on the intersection of visual art, technology and music. Featuring performers and artists at the vanguard of this intersection, the evening explores what happens when the visual arts collide with music.
