Documentation of the OPENSIGNAL Festival that happened as part of Brown University's MEME program was uploaded this summer, and I have finally remembered to share it here. Information and video footage of the installation that I was a part of can be found on the MEME's Vimeo page here and here. I am so grateful to have been invited to be a part of it (1 among 85 musicians).
The 7 minute piece that I wrote, Somerset Repeater was expanded into a 30 minute piece for the Les Soirees Dessinees installation in Paris this summer. It wrote was inspired by Ham radio communications that my husband and I discovered this winter. I am planning to create a series of 30 minute pieces based on Ham radio repeater stations around the country and world. This is the first time that I have done any composing on the computer. The 7 minute piece can be found on my Soundcloud here.
A song of mine, red-painted right hand of god, is included on the YDLMIER 050 cassette compilation. The release will be celebrated today from 2-11pm at the Washington Street Arts Center in Somerville, MA. Info can be found here. (Sorry again for the late notification...)
I have been awarded Director's Choice for five of my photographs that are included in the national juried show In Camera 2. It is hosted at Artwell Gallery in Torrington, Connecticut, and runs from July 11th-August 1st. The opening is this Friday, July 11th. Information about the exhibition and opening can be found here.
A 30 minute piece of mine, entitled "Somerset Repeater", is a part of this unique installation at Galerie AREA in Paris, France. Graphic designers will be responding live to the compositions. I'm so excited about this, and loved creating the composition for it. The piece is inspired by, and samples, ham radio transmissions in the eastern United States.
I'm late in publishing this information, but I hope that some of you can make it nonetheless. I'm so disappointed that I can't witness it myself. More information about the event can be found here and here, and information about the record label that has curated it, Tsuku Boshi, can be found here.
