|TOTAL HARMONIC DISTORTION at SoundWalk 2009
|LONG BEACH, CA (October 3, 2009) In its sixth year, SoundWalk, taking place on October 3rd, is an annual art event produced by the Long Beach artist group, FLOOD. The evening operates under the concept of a one-night multi-sensory experience as conveyed through sound art that is situated in various indoor and outdoor spaces throughout the East Village Arts District in Downtown Long Beach.
For this year's SoundWalk, Redux will premiere a new performance piece entitled TOTAL HARMONIC DISTORTION . This piece is a live performance of approximately 20 - 25 minutes wherein the performers are involved in trying to bring order to a chaotic system in the form of an extended feedback loop. This loop is created by putting several processing components in series where the output is passed into the input stage of the first component in the chain. Included in this chain are digital signal processing via custom computer software and a multi effects processor unit. This unit is in turn controlled by custom software that allows non-standard manipulation of effect parameters with a high level of precision.... more >>
|Redux installs FROM PILLAR TO POST at SoundWalk 2007
|LONG BEACH, CA (September 22, 2007) The Long Beach artist group, FLOOD, will present SoundWalk 2007, featuring artists from the Southland and the international scene. This event operates under the concept of a one-night aural/visual experience as provided by a walking-tour of sound installations and soundmarks located in various indoor and outdoor spaces situated throughout the East Village Arts District in Downtown Long Beach. The artworks will combine in multiple ways a wide range of visual, performative and audio components. There will be sculptures, environments, installations and performances.
Redux is proud to present FROM PILLAR TO POST for this year's SoundWalk. In this piece, a hypersonic sound (HSS) speaker is placed at one end of a medium-sized room and mounted on a motorized turret which allows the speaker to rotate in a horizontal line around the room. As HSS speakers allow the creation of a highly focused beam of sound, the sound played with this system appears to be coming from within the wall at which the speaker is pointed. As the speaker moves from left to right, the sounds of various articles being torn come from the wall, creating the sensation that the room itself is slowly being torn apart. The degree of motion is specified by the signal level output from the recording, so that the sounds of more violent tearing motions will rip the room apart at a faster rate, and smaller, quieter sounds will take longer to creep around the perimeter of the room. Once the speaker has completed its trajectory, the sound source changes, and the speaker begins its course again in the other direction. As the speaker moves along its path, the sound of a new brick wall being constructed and mortar being laid slowly moves across the room; the length of the construction process being determined by the intensity of activity in its creation.
From "Pillar to Post" stops just short of giving its audience a glimpse of the world outside, instead providing frustration and endless confinement to architectural space.
