Featuring the work of ITP Alumnus Nick Yulman
The book is a mechanism, a piece of technology with multiple parts. It is a device fitted with a central hinging structure, which when opened doubles its surface area as if by magic.
I'll be showing Index Quartet a new configuration of my book synthesizers in this show exploring different takes on books as mechanisms.
UnCaged Toy Piano Festival
Dimenna Center Benzaquen Hall
450 37th St. NY, NY 10018) 2F
As part of this wonderful festival devoted to musical toys, I'll fill the DiMenna Center’s Benzaquen Hall with an array of digitally controlled mechanical instruments, creating an immersive environment for listeners to explore. These musical automata will accompany disembodied voices, emanating from radios, and perform a musical program that ranges from tightly choreographed pop songs to textural soundscapes that move around the room like shifting weather patterns.
From 8-9pm, you can also check out — or even perform in — an all-toy version of Terry Riley's In C.
