Location: Anne & Joel Ehrenkranz Gallery, Museum Lobby
For the 2014 Biennial, influential composer, accordionist, and pioneer of electronic music Pauline Oliveros will present Deep Listening Room, a sound and video installation. Using generative computer technology, this installation transforms signals from a surround-sound microphone and a video surveillance camera that will be installed in the museum’s lobby. Performances by International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) and Oliveros will accompany the installation.
The installation can be viewed during Museum Hours.
ICE will perform intermittently in the lobby.
May 25, 4 pm
Pauline Oliveros will perform with the installation of the Ambisonic Expanded Instrument System in the Deep Listening Room. The system will encompass all the sounds and sights from the lobby, including ICE performances there.
Free with Museum admission. Admittance is on a first-come, first-seated basis until capacity is reached.
