Installation and performance
An intimate atmosphere of transmission inside a multi-channel array of radio receivers and micro-watt transmitters, suspended and dispersed throughout the space. The radios express nighttime respirations, radio-synthesis, and uneasy dreams. The larger array is joined by several table-top custom radio/tape players built by Hyde Park inventor George Kagan.
Nocturne will overlap in installation and performance with A Vinculum Variation by Coppice, engaging in conversation with the elements of the shared sonic landscape and the live instruments of all three performers. Anna plays free reeds, electronics, and cassettes.
A Vinculum Variation
This presentation expands the performed-installation practice of the duo to invite conversation with adjacent sonic work. The multichannel installation and performance accommodates motifs and materials from Vinculum, an ongoing project since 2010. Technically, the work relies on a custom-built inductive mixing table, formerly utilized in Copse (2010). The table redistributes the sounds of the Vinculum archive as they are played back through small speakers resting at different locations on its surface. The installation will be elaborated in performance by the reorientation of the speakers on the table and live material related to Vinculum.
Anna Friz is a Canadian sound and radio artist currently based in Chicago. She specializes in multi-channel transmission systems for installation, performance, and broadcast, where radio is the source, subject and medium of the work. She also composes works for theatre, dance, film and solo performance that reflect upon public media culture or reveal interior landscapes. She has performed and exhibited widely across North America, South America, and Europe, and her radio art/works have been heard on the airwaves of more than 20 countries. Anna is a free103point9 transmission artist.
Coppice (Noé Cuéllar & Joseph Kramer) is a Chicago-based duet of bellows and electronics. Since its formation in 2009 they have produced original compositions for stage, fixed media, and performed installation settings, with a focus on adhering textural attenuation, processed gradation, the contours of instrumentation, and their multiple aspect highlights.
Their variable instrumentation departs from bellows and reed instruments (accordion, pump organ, shruti box), custom electronics (reproduction, transmission, spatialization, interference and gentle feedback), and multi-channel systems adapted in ways responsive to location, audience flow, and aural perspectives.
