PLACE

Composed by David Dunn, produced by Colin Tucker and Ethan Hayden, performed by Null Point

The work is a sequence of ten sound installations for electronics, voices, bodies, instruments, and found objects that builds a musical language in dialouge with a particular place's soundscape, ecosystem, topography, and built environment.

Electronics record and play back ambient sounds. Voices and instruments trigger acoustic resonances in the local envrionment. Instruments and found objects replicate ambient sounds in real time. Materials found on site become the basis for structured improvisations.

Unfolding from early afternoon to sundown, the work will be presented as an installation, wherein audience members are free to walk around the site and experience it from mulitple perspectives and drop in and out as they please.

All are invited to join in the performance's final section by producing sounds with materials found on site. This section will begin at 7:15pm. No prior musical experience is required.
