Ingrid Lee presents a set of work exploring various types of focused listening:
On User-determined Listening
(for two lecturers)
Pink Noise Studies
(for binaural mics, pink noise, resonant vessels and various textures)
(for voices and piano)
Please bring headphones/earbuds for this performance, and if possible, a smartphone/tablet with the airfoil speaker app installed (download here: https://www.rogueamoeba.com/airfoil/speakers.php). There will be a limited number of headphones and smart phones in case you do not have them.
Todd Lerew presents:
(performed by Christine Tavolacci and Justin Scheid)
Two flute mouthpieces are connected by a long, clear tube. A ball inside the tube acts as a stopper which is sufficiently tight-fitting that it acoustically separates the chamber into two segments, yet remains free to roll laterally and alter both sounding sources simultaneously. Two performers act jointly to explore the sonic capabilities of this dependent system.
plus something else TBD, possibly involving balloons and/or water
