Outpost Performance Space
210 Yale SE, Albuquerque
Steven M. Miller uses electronic technology to explore the sonic properties of acoustic instruments and the sounds of the world around him. He is Chair of the Contemporary Music Program at the College of Santa Fe, and performs with Gamelan Encantada, in various Middle Eastern ensembles, and with Santa Fe chanteuse Nacha Mendez. Tonight he premiers Recirculations, a new piece for live computer-based digital processing of acoustic feedback, in which the sonic characteristics of the performance space itself (as well as the sounds within it) influence the music’s texture and evolution.
CK Barlow works primarily by manipulating samples of everyday sounds: machinery, kitchen implements, insects, etc. A charter member of Out of Context, the large improvising ensemble conducted by JA Deane, her work is often heard accompanying modern dance and theater performances. For this concert, she is presenting Name Day, for pre-recorded electronics with live oboe (Kevin Vigneau) and cello (Katie Harlow); and Moth TV, a recent multimedia work for sampled sounds of moths with projected video by local media artist Hue Walker.
