Fortheir first performance together, Paula Matthusen and Seth Cluett will fill atable with transduced tubes, 3D printed shapes, amplified objects, and cassetterecorders; feedback will be used to explore spaces large and small whilesoftware and hardware instruments capture sound as a material to be sculpted intime; both are composers, artists, and performers in equal and sometime notequal parts, so no particular preference will be given to whether the soundsare loud or soft or short or long but a great deal of attention will almostcertainly be paid to listening in the moment

‘sides-systems under test’ is a live sound work based on ongoing research about thephysical impact of societies as acoustic properties; it traces the question ofwhat happens if we temporally, spatially and intellectually feedback our lackof control over the world; maybe void and silence are not too far apart andactive listening can be an information session about our inabilities, a benefitfor our crumbled actions, a funeral party for lost dreams and a launch ofattempts and approaches

Michael Schumacher (New York)             Sunday17   
ThePortable Multi-Channel Sound System is a musical instrument designedspecifically for Michael J. Schumacher’s spatialized compositions; building onthe pioneering work of composers such as Alvin Lucier and Maryanne Amacher,presentations explore the relationship between musical form and architecturalspace and how this relationship can inform listening; combining installationand performance, algorithmic composition and improvisation, this goes beyondacoustics to the way people inhabit and use spaces, creating paradigms forlistening and formal expectations  http://michaeljschumacher.com/PM-CSS
