Create your own instruments and sounds with basic electronics. Then perform live! The ten members of Theremidi Orchestra (TO) will guide and assist participants during a five-day, hands-on and theoretical workshop. Participants will assemble two electronic sound devices and learn how to play them in noisy group improvisations.
The workshop will also provide a framework for aesthetic discussion, from how to improvise and work in a group and understanding the sound ranges of the instruments, to implications of collective feedback loops and concepts of social amplification. Then work collaboratively to develop the live performance. Daniel Neumann, curator of CT-SWaM, will assist in developing ideas for spatialization of the multi-channel performance.
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.

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.
