Rec. Play.

Thumbnail

Rec. Play. is Eyebeam’s exciting series exploring the shifting landscape of sound art, music and sound itself. Rec. Play. grew out of the Eyebeam Sound Research Group, initiated by Roddy Schrock, and longstanding collaboration and discussion amongst staff, residents, and fellows working in the areas of sound art and sound science. Rec. Play. aims to identify current trends in the realm of sound art, how it has changed with the times, and what histories remain to be traced.

These events coalesce as a series of micro-festivals, symposia, performance, installation, and cross-pollinated presentations.

An Evening of Performance and Readings What is the dream-life of digital words as they lay flat on a screen, quietly acquiescing? Can they be satisfied with the momentary puffs of arranged air or do they want something thicker, heavier?  Do words dream about becoming sheafs of blank paper or a screen marked only by a blinking cursor?  Or do they just want a body of their own?  Do they want your body?   Join Wendy S. Walters, Joseph Whitt and Joon Oluchi Lee + Roddy Schrock for an evening of performance and readings exploring the dream-life of words and their electronic lives.
