    3D Sound Object: World Listening Day [panel] // ISSUE Project Room

    Tuesday, July 18, 2017 - 8:00pm   map

    Post-concert panel moderator with the stellar participating artists (Stephan Moore, Suzanne Thorpe, and Scott Smallwood) along with Anne Guthrie (wearing her Arup hat) and Risha Lee (curator of Rubin Museum of Art's "The World Is Sound" exhibit.)

    3D Sound Object

    "ISSUE Project Room and Harvestworks are pleased to present two performances featuring acoustician Paul Geluso’s immersive 3D Sound Object, a speaker system capable of reproducing complex directional sound radiation. As part of a series of commissions and outreach activities that feature the operation of the 3D Sound Object, these performances highlight key techniques and listening strategies in approaching sound within unique acoustic spaces.

    Tuesday, July 18th sees Stephan Moore, Scott Smallwood and Suzanne Thorpe each presenting new work as a part of World Listening Day, which pays homage to the experimental legacy of Pauline Oliveros. Together, these artists “sound out” the sonic qualities of ISSUE’s historic McKim, Mead and White Theater at 22 Boerum Place using Geluso’s invention. Developed by Geluso while in residence at Harvestworks, the Object has become a platform for new experimental compositions by contemporary composers, specifically exploring the model radiation of acoustic instruments, the spatialization of existing recorded sound, and the creation of synthesized sound in three dimensions. Described as “painting with sonar,” the Object catalyzes the collaborative construction of a 3D soundscape as well as the scanning and exploring of ISSUE’s unique sonic environment."

    Artists-In-Residence Alumni Collaborations // ISSUE Project Room

    Thursday, January 19, 2017 - 8:00pm   map

    From ISSUE Project Room's Event Page

    "Drawing its participants from the first 10 years of ISSUE Project Room’s Artists-In-Residence Program, AIR Alumni Collaborations is a performance that brings together former ISSUE resident artists in striking new combinations. Eccentric, interdisciplinary, and deeply experimental, the new collaborations showcase the wide-range of approaches found within the ISSUE community, amplifying each artist’s personal aesthetics while drawing unexpected parallels between their work.

    Thursday, January 19th, ISSUE presents three first-ever collaborative performances by former ISSUE Artists-In-Residence focusing on highlighting their parallel and divergent performance strategies. Cellist, vocalist, and electronics producer Audrey Chen performs alongside two key members of the collaborative ensemble Ne(x)tworks: renowned vocalist Joan La Barbara and composer, improviser and electro-acoustician Miguel Frasconi. Berlin-based composer and synthesist Doron Sadja pairs his particular style of multi-channel spatialized sound, pristine electronics, dense noise, and immersive light projections with multimedia artist Rauel De Nieves’ encompassing narrative and multimedia performance style. MV Carbon performs a new collaboration with media artist Bradley Eros sharing the role of manipulating sound and image on a new project called The Mystery of Spiders -- a sound & projection performance conceptualizing scores based on spider webs.

It is a set structure under the concept “the invisible rehearsal". The series has been concerned with borders, displacement and violence.

    Daniel Goode - Hub Line for the High Line

    Saturday, April 23, 2016 - 12:20pm   map

    Hub Line for the High Line
    a site specific performance piece by Daniel Goode

    For thirty gong players, accordion, trombone, and clarinet, each gong player with a hand-held auto hubcap. These are light round metal disks, with beautiful complex tones that at one time covered the center of car wheels, often with iconic symbols representing the make of the car. The thirty players will form a long line, playing in sequence from high to low, with a low trombone pedal tone as a cadence. The accordion will pick out harmonies from the gongs, while the clarinet plays high melodic riffs. The piece will begin in one part of the High Line, and move as a procession to a second spot for a concluding movement.

    Featured soloists: Peter Zummo, trombone; Kamala Sankaram, accordion; Daniel Goode, clarinet.

    Met Muesum Event Page
    Analog Arts Klang Page

    Klang (Die 24 Stunden des Tages) 
    by Karlheinz Stockhausen (U.S. Premiere)

    CJM performs during Glanz (Brilliance), the 10th hour in the Klang cycle.

    Glanz personnel:
    Bryan Young, bassoon
    Alexandrina Boyanova, viola
    Vasko Dukovski, clarinet
    Joe Drew, trumpet
    Chris McIntyre, trombone
    Kemp Jernigan, oboe
    Jay Rozen, tuba

    Karlheinz Stockhausen's fiercely original KLANG (meaning "sound" in German) is an acoustic and electronic work so massive that it requires all day and all three of the Met's iconic buildings to stage. This twenty-one-part, unfinished composition was originally envisioned by Stockhausen as consisting of twenty-four individual compositions (one for each hour of the day), but the work was left unfinished at the time of his death. This performance will mark the U.S. premiere of Klang in its entirety, and will be performed at the Metropolitan Museum's Fifth Avenue building, The Met Breuer, and The Cloisters museum and gardens in Fort Tryon Park. More details will follow."
