Cage Transmitted: Evening 2 Part 2 will feature Composers Inside Electronics (CIE), a group of composer/performers dedicated to the composition and live performance of electronic music, will present an engaging evening of electro-acoustic music by John Driscoll and Doug Van Nort. The performance will take place at NYCAMS (New York Center for Arts & Media Studies) 44 West 28th Street, 7th flr, at 7pm.
The performance will include John Driscoll’s new “Speaking in Tongues” – a duo work for a group of unusual instruments that use sound above our hearing to translate small physical movements into audible sounds. Driscoll and Van Nort will also perform a collaborative improvisation using resonant objects to transform sounds and custom software that allows the performers to share and alter each others signals.
JOHN DRISCOLL is a sound artist and composer whose work focuses on spatial acoustics, new instruments, robotics, and compositions for unique architectural spaces. He has performed world-wide with David Tudor, CIE, Douglas Dunn & Dancers, and as a solo performer.
Doug Van Nort is an experimental musician whose work explores the sculpting and radical transformation of his sonic environment. His instruments are custom-built electro-acoustic systems and digital processes, with an ear towards noise, immersion and free improvisation. Van Nort performs solo and in the trio Triple Point with Pauline Oliveros and Jonas Braasch, and is currently research associate in music at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
