Vidiksis will perform Things that Live in the Whirligig, for solo percussion and live computer processing.

Spinning, spinning, spinning… we greet the wondrous creatures that live within the whirligig. This piece explores textures created through spinning, or that evoke whirling. As the whirligig goes round and round, I imagine a menagerie of creatures great and small that reside within. This work is based on a poem composed by my mother when she carried me, and I dedicate it to my newborn daughter. Things That Live in the Whirligig is for solo multi-percussion and live processing, composed in Pure Data. “For things once seen are pulled within the whirligig of mind, where they are tamed and in the heart framed to be used over again in time…”

The New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival will take place June 21—28, 2015 at the Abrons Arts Center in Manhattan’s Lower East Side. It is dedicated to showcasing the best electroacoustic music and video art from all over the world in New York City, through a multi-day festival.  The festival includes electroacoustic music recorded alone in up to eight channels, works involving live electronics, works combining musical instruments or voices with recorded or live electronics, video and multimedia works, and audio and video installations.
