Sunday Sessions

New Amsterdam Presents Sound / Source

Sunday, October 19, 2014
12:00 PM to 10:00 PM


Sound / Source is a day-long exploration of electroacoustic music in all its forms, featuring collaborations between legends, luminaries, and newcomers as they examine the interplay between human and machine sounds. Using the elasticity of the human voice and the endless expanse of its interpretation through electronic processing as a guiding principle, Sound / Source takes at its center a rare live performance of pieces from Paul Lansky's series of Idle Chatter compositions on the 30th anniversary of the series' birth. The significant, continued resonance of these compositions will be represented in a new interpretation by younger artist/composer Holly Herndon. A series of other performances throughout the day, including a collaborative performance by Tristan Perich and Vicky Chow, as well as several other artist performances, will underscore the new and vital pathways being forged in the electronic field.
