On June 3, 2017, Tara and David Gladden performed Achromatic at the Outpost Artist Resource in Queens NY as part of the Confetti Machine: Realtime Media Festival, a celebration of Realtime media performance and its community of practitioners. Confetti Machine showcased the diversity and breadth of emerging media performance in NYC and beyond. Over the course of three days, Confetti Machine featured 30+ performances, immersive installations, vocal choirs, dancers, generative string ensembles, and more.
