Janney to demonstrate musical images

Best known locally for his musical "sound stairs" in Boston's Museum of Science, Christopher Janney (S.M. 1978) fuses his two passions -- music and architecture -- by relying on sound to transform space. Tonight at the Berklee Performance Center (136 Massachusetts Ave., Boston), he'll present his latest project: a "visual instrument" that allows him to "play" multiple images and forms in real time. "Technology is now at the level where I can create 'poly-visual music' -- multiple images interacting simultaneously via my synth keyboard and the other players," Janney says.

He'll perform his "Visual Music Project" at 8:15 p.m. with Moksha, a Berklee faculty band.
