On April 21st, Eyebeam's main exhibition space will be transformed into a small village dedicated to creative sound research. Using resources as diverse as atmospheric sensors, ping-pong balls, string instruments, reverberant plates, magnetized wires, cell phones, data hubs, and laughter, participants from Eyebeam's sound research group will convene to run experiments, share original research, develop work in progress, and explore collaborative strategies.
Interaction, encounter, and juxtaposition will be emphasized over sound isolation—the idea being that sound is transparent enough to permit a human ecology that transcends the singular focus of the concert format.
From 3PM-7PM the public will be invited to witness the results. The day will culminate in a public discussion at 7PM.
tomorrow will be my last post, yes? as the residency has ended, and this is denouement. so oud for your enjoyment. I'll give out URLs tomorrow for continuation of everything elsewhere. thanks for everything, Eyebeam!!!
played on Maurice Shehata oud, which I purchased today, I've looked for an instrument like this for a while, and the owner gave me a beautiful risha (pick) to use with it, and from this Darkness came, and please listen, and thank you -
