Megapolis Warm-Up Audio Transmission with Anna Friz and Eric Leonardson

With Anna Friz and Eric Leonardson.

This event precedes MegaFest 3 April 19-21 in New York City at the New School.

A radiophonic installation creates an intimate atmosphere of transmission, where audience and performers share the acoustic space inside a multi-channel array of suspended radio receivers and micro-watt transmitters. Restless voices, sounds of breath, and other bodily exclamations seep up through the welter of signals creating a milieu of harmonic interference and uneasy nighttime respirations. Anna Friz and Eric Leonardson perform within this world: Eric plays a self-made instrument that he calls the “Springboard,” an electroacoustic percussion instrument which produces rich enharmonic timbres from coil springs, plastic combs, pocket radio, and wooden daxophones; Anna plays electronics, free reeds, and small acoustic instruments.
