On April 21st, Eyebeam's main exhibition space will be transformed into a small village dedicated to creative sound research. Using resources as diverse as atmospheric sensors, ping-pong balls, string instruments, reverberant plates, magnetized wires, cell phones, data hubs, and laughter, participants from Eyebeam's sound research group will convene to run experiments, share original research, develop work in progress, and explore collaborative strategies.

Interaction, encounter, and juxtaposition will be emphasized over sound isolation—the idea being that sound is transparent enough to permit a human ecology that transcends the singular focus of the concert format.

From 3PM-7PM the public will be invited to witness the results. The day will culminate in a public discussion at 7PM.

Darkness

played on Maurice Shehata oud, which I purchased today,
I've looked for an instrument like this for a while,
and the owner gave me a beautiful risha (pick) to use
with it, and from this Darkness came, and please listen,
and thank you -

Saddening

Being at the beginning of the Interrupt 2 event at Brown
University, I am realizing how sad letters are, and I
play this tune to show that.
