Macy Conference #17 with STRFLD Simulation and PareiDoliA
27 October 2018
The first hour of this show features a selection of experimental music across genres, with works by David Behrman, François Bayle, NYZ, DJ Earl and Suzi Analogue, Raime, Kim Juk-P’a, Ursula Bogner, Theo Burt, Alvin Lucier and others.
In the second part of the show, the two Berlin based experimental musicians Marta Zapparoli and Liz Allbee are presenting their PareiDoliA project. Together they consider the inaudible pollution that surrounds us. A sonic web of signals and noises that propogate through space and traverse our bodies. Marta gives voice to these otherwise imperceptible waves using self-built antennas and world-wide band receivers, drawing awareness to the potentially harmful biological and environmental side effects. In response Liz moves outwards from the inner, highly subjective world of a remarkable trumpet player with her custom-designed quadraphonic trumpet and tine wave spatializations. Together the two perform immersive multi-channel compositions of haunting intensity. Investigating the extremes of presence and absence: reconfiguring the embodiment of instrument and performer in space, and transmitting and receiving spectral voices.
