HERE.HERE : VENTRILOQUY OF SPACE
Our relationship to space is not just visual, but also auditory. In this concert, the correlation between an environmental space and the sounds and music that resonate it our challenged. Michael J McEvoy questions the translation of visual image to sound through interpretation. His music is a response to videos, and his scores invite classically trained musicians to expand their zone of influence, from the traditional minutia of interpretation in classical music to a wide-open form. Cello, Guitar and Piano. Akira Sileas and Harry Whalley’s work Plangency for Cello and Live electronics uses the reverberant space of Salisbury Cathedral. The cello activates different resonances that are amplified and manipulated, surrounding the audience in a way that exaggerates the resonances and materials of the cathedral. Sea of Cables uses field recordings as a basis for electronic improvisation. In this context the environmental sound is transferred into a texture, which is built upon by the ensemble.
