CT-SWaM (Contemporary Temporary Sound Works And Music) is Eyebeam’s late night concert series curated by Eyebeam Alumni Daniel Neumann, happening intermittently in Eyebeam’s Main Space. The series focuses on contemporary sound experiments, electro-acoustic multi-channel performance, social relations, improvisation, lowercase artistic presence, and topology – study of place/space with a spatial concept that goes beyond linear, geometrical understandings of space. 

Featuring:

RAFT (Pat Noecker)

MOBILE SPACE IMPROVISED

Using his iPhone as his primary recording, sampling and performance device, RAFT (Pat Noecker) will build an improvised composition that explores the voice of Eyebeam’s Main Space.

André Vida’s Moving Scores is an installation of films and animated musical notations that focuses on the delicate relationship between performer and score. Unlike typical musical scores, these interactive pieces listen to their performers and respond with motion, amplifying the musical gesture and giving the sound a space to develop in equilibrium with the visual. Audiences may visit the gallery during the day, 10-12 April, as the performers develop their individual interpretations of these pieces.

Featuring:

10 April, 12-3PM: Andre Vida, sax

10 April, 3-6PM: Christa Robinson, english horn

11 April, 12-3PM: Sara Schoenbeck, bassoon

11 April, 3-6PM: Loren Dempster, cello

This city becomes audible when we become quiet. It’s inhabited by the small creatures, the slow creatures, the imperfect ones, both biological and mechanical, that we depend on, but which we have forgotten.

Cyclograph of activity in Mary Mattingly's Flock House

The Rhythmanalysis Lab is concerned with the observation, representation, and interpretation of rhythms in everyday life. Inspired by the work of Henri Lefebvre, it is a framework for projects, workshops, and investigations at the intersection of urban research, sound, and data science.


Will the (future) rhythmanalyst ... set up and direct a lab where one compares documents: graphs, frequencies and various curves? ... Just as he borrows and receives from his whole body and all his senses, so he receives data from all the sciences: psychology, sociology, ethnology, biology; and even physics and mathematics ... He will come to 'listen' to a house, a street, a town, as an audience listens to a symphony.

- Henri Lefebvre, "The Rhythmanalyst: A Previsionary Portrait" in Rhythmanalysis: Space, Time and Everyday life. New York City: Continuum, 2004. Pg. 22.
