Experience Sonic Futures installations and performances, Jan. 29
*Note: This event was originally scheduled for Dec. 18 but has been rescheduled for Jan. 29.
The Ammerman Center for Arts and Technology presents an evening of new sound/media installations and performances by students in "Post Digital: New Sonic Futures and the Activist Imaginary" from 7-8:15 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 29.
Featured artists include seniors Drew André, Juan Flores, Joseph Mercado and Chelsea Preston. Installations can be viewed from 7-7:30 p.m., and live performances will take place from 7:45-8:15 p.m. at 768 Williams Street, across from the main campus.
In one performance, using an analog joystick similar to those found on video game controllers, Drew André will pan audio in a quadrophonic system. He'll use Arduino and Maxuino to transform 768 Williams into a place he titles, "Azimuth Co-ordinator II."
Another piece, "Untitled," consists of a group improvisation of experimental electronic music described as "a focused look into the aesthetics of today's post-digital landscape through sound, with an emphasis on the last five years of popular experimental electronic music. Investigation of current critical explorations of race, sexuality, artist activism and identity, science fiction, and the contemporary art world."
