Vidiksis will perform Hyperdyne for solo tenor drum and real time computer audio processing. This concert will also feature work by Joo Won Park and ThingNY.
Hyperdyne explores the dynamics of force as the impetus for vibration, both electrical and mechanical. This work features frenetic rhythms which are then processed by the computer, variably expanding or diminishing the resonant characteristic of the sound produced by the drum. As the piece progresses, the digital filtering is accompanied by increasingly less resonant sound production by the performer, through the use of various extended techniques that reveal harmonic spectra of the drum, sticks, and performance space. The result is a process of diminishing resonance throughout the work, leading to a sense of wilting or decay.
This takes place close by, devised and performed by thingNY, is a new set of operatic stories and scenes depicting people and places before, during and after a devastating storm. Told almost entirely in the dark and often by whispers, this immersive opera explores the eerie and the absurd through soundscapes, song, speech and imagery. The work is written and performed by Gelsey Bell, Andrew Livingston, Paul Pinto, Erin Rogers, Dave Ruder and Jeffrey Young.
