Ada Adhiyatma - Biological Time 1
Ada Adhiyatma is a musician who explores machine interfaces and the embodied idea of distance. Working with handmade computer programs, field recordings and old samplers, they fantasize about sound as a way to echolocate spaces defined by separations, the trauma of dislocation, the impossibility of empathy. Ada will be performing "Biological Time 1", a structured improvisation that engages with the body's sense of 'waiting' by framing durations of silence.
Leo Suarez - Marbles on Tile
Leo Suarez is a drummer/improvisor based in Philadelphia. The improvisational concepts and structuring of his latest release, "Marbles On Tile", will be forming the basis of his program.
"Marbles On Tile" is a 3-point system that utilizes a triangular communication path of "hard sounds". These paths develop on top of a base of "soft sound" overtones which are created with longer decaying voices. The pieces start with a small phrase which evolves into a 3-point communication. Other voices are brought in, shortened or extended, becoming more complex and melodic, with a bedrock of sound still changing underneath.
