Multi Site Installation by Kabir Carter

September 30, 2005 4:00 PM - 4:00 AM

As part of its series of public performances, exhibitions and lectures featuring pioneering and emerging artists who explore the boundaries of electronic art, iEAR Presents! welcomes composer Kabir Carter and his multi-site sound installations to the Rensselaer campus on Friday, September 30th from 5-9PM. This event marks the public presentation of the artist’s Spring ’05 Create @ iEAR residency, which was made possible in part by a grant from the New York State Council on the Arts Music Program – Residencies in New Music Technology. Mr. Carter will present two works – “Feedforward” and “Decontrolled.” The event is FREE and open to the public. Feedforward (multi-site installation) monitors and transforms physical space through compositionally and improvisatorially driven responses to small and large-scale variations in environmental sound. Decontrolled (West Hall Gallery 111) investigates and attempts to reprogram the redundant energy projections of mainstream radio in live sound projection and propagation systems. The two works will be realized on Friday, September 30 in a series of events executed at various locations on the RPI campus. An opening reception with the artist will precede the sound experience from 4-5 PM in the West Hall Gallery (Room 111) on the RPI campus. For site locations on September 30, please call (518) 276-4829. Beginning on October 1, Decontrolled (Broken Surround) – will be installed in West Hall Gallery 111 through October 26. Limited street parking, behind West Hall and in the West Hall parking lot. For directions to the RPI campus please access the college website at www.rpi.edu and click on “Visit RPI”.
