Rec. Play.

Thumbnail

Rec. Play. is Eyebeam’s exciting series exploring the shifting landscape of sound art, music and sound itself. Rec. Play. grew out of the Eyebeam Sound Research Group, initiated by Roddy Schrock, and longstanding collaboration and discussion amongst staff, residents, and fellows working in the areas of sound art and sound science. Rec. Play. aims to identify current trends in the realm of sound art, how it has changed with the times, and what histories remain to be traced.

These events coalesce as a series of micro-festivals, symposia, performance, installation, and cross-pollinated presentations.

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.
