CalArts Digital Arts Expo: Electro-Acoustic Sound Bath

  • California Institute of the Arts 24700 McBean Parkway Valencia, CA, 91355 United States (map)

Breana Gilcher and David Aguila are Manatee Migrations. During the 2018 CalArts Digital Arts Expo they will present an electro-acoustic sound bath experience. We are an electro-acoustic freely improvised duo, stemming from the foundations of classical/contemporary music creating unique textural dialogs engaging audiences in the transformation of sounds from Oboe to live processing.

This electro-acoustic sound bath aims to navigate the edges between acoustic and electronic timbres, exploring raw dynamic soundscape experiences, symbiotically synthesized by the oboist, serving as the input, the live processing, which serves as the output. The listener, with the contribution of attention and presence of their body, becomes a third collaborator by receiving and stepping into these soundscapes. Each receiver takes part in the journey through the sound bath filled with colorful waves of subtle timeless noise and activating harmonic bliss.

The performance will take place in A300 in the Herb Alpert School of Music
