In one hour, the CD condenses 24 hours of sounds of the Bosavi rainforest and its Kaluli inhabitants in central Papua New Guinea. The CD reached multiple audiences concerned with interspecies art, experimental field recording, acoustic ecology, and cultural survival, and is still in circulation through Smithsonian Folkways. Over the last year and a half Feld has worked with Dennis Leonard at Skywalker Sound to recreate Voices of the Rainforest in the 7.1 cinema surround format, for acousmatic concerts, as well as indoor/outdoor museum and gallery installations.

Bryan Jacobs - Mechanical Instruments and ...

Tue, 05/16/2017 - 00:46
Date:  Wed, 05/17/2017 - 5:30pm - 6:30pm Location:  CCRMA Classroom Event Type:  Colloquium Recent Guggenheim Fellow - composer, performer, and sound artist - Bryan Jacobs, presents this weeks CCRMA Colloquium on his recent work and research. Bryan's work focuses on interactions between live performers and electronic sound. His pieces are often theatrical in nature, pitting blabber-mouthed fanciful showoffs against timid reluctants. The sounds are playfully organized and many times mimic patterns found in human dialogue. Hand-build electromechanical instruments controlled by microcontrollers bridge acoustic and electroacoustic sound worlds. These instruments live dual lives as time-based concert works and non-time-based gallery works.
