Friday 30 September at 7pm, 150 Media Stream (150 Riverside Plaza in Chicago) will present a new intermedia work, Campos / Temporales, with animation by Paul Hertz and music by Christopher Walczak.
The opening features live music with Eric Mandat on clarinet, Emily Rach Beisel on saxophone, Jason Roebke on bass, and Chris Butler on percussion, with electronic sound by Christopher Walczak.
Walczak and Hertz composed the music and computer-generated animation through a collaborative process. The live music was also recorded at Experimental Sound Studio in Chicago and will be released in a future video version of the animation. The animation and electronic music will be installed at 150 Media Stream through the end of November.
Geek notes: the animation consists of audio waves transcoded into color data and mapped to a space-filling curve. The periodicity of the audio creates intricate, shifting patterns. Spatial rhythms in the animation recur as temporal rhythms in the music, and vice versa.
Hope you can make it to the opening!
