IRISH SOUND, SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY ASSOCIATION ANNUAL CONFERENCE AND FESTIVAL
CIT CORK SCHOOL OF MUSIC, UNION QUAY, CORK, IRELAND
OCTOBER 31ST AND NOVEMBER 1ST, 2019
KEYNOTE LECTURE AND PERFORMANCE: ROBERT HENKE
KEYNOTE WORKSHOP/PERFORMANCE BY ELLEN KING (GASH COLLECTIVE)
Performance haunts our electronic music and sonic arts.
The technologies which facilitate our sonic creations transmit, but also sometimes obscure, the gestures of our sound production. Speakers, microphones and interfaces could be said to displace as they transmit or transduce. How much of the electronic music we hear is actually performed? How have our technologies changed our ideas of performance?
In the post-digital age, we often see an intermingling of technologies, terminologies and approaches, encompassing electroacoustic/computer/electronic music and sound-art. The terminology and descriptors are now becoming irrevocably entangled as a surge of new performers rise amidst the deluge of new hardware and software tools. As this cross–pollination occurs, the so-called cultural underground that originally supported this music appears to be very much ‘overground’ and alive, peddling its wares (equipment as well as music) with increasing prolificacy and achieving ever–increasing globalised acceptance. Should a new language be invented to define and discuss this music, or should the existing one be augmented? Or should we simply stop, listen, and enjoy the performance?
Robert Henke will give a public performance of "Dust" in the Curtis Auditorium at CSM on November 1st.
Tickets for this concert will go on sale in September 2019, via the CSM website.
