Ed Bear, Mike Bullock and Linda Aubry Bullock, Damian Catera and Patricia Kositzky, and Bernd Klug present and perform work created during their 2015 Wave Farm Artist Residencies.
Making use of UnionDocs’ newly installed 7.1 sound system these artists will perform the following pieces:
Ed Bear will perform and present his newly developed instrument, an experimental multichannel synthesizer, comprised of an array of microradio transmitters.
Mike Bullock and Linda Abury Bullock will present a 7.1 channel sound and single-channel video mix of their residency project “Lanalog,” which was a six-hour durational performance using transmission to connect six performers located throughout Wave Farm’s 29 acres.
Bernd Klug will perform “Transmissions and Frequency Spectra of a Radio Station.” Comprised of site-specific recordings made during his residency, Klug employs acoustic and electromagnetic detritus to produce a generative work in which the radio “plays itself.”
Damian Catera and Trish Kositzky will present “Strategies Against Communication: NIGHT,” a four episode interactive radio performance series, incorporating original composition, theatre, and spoken word.
