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.
