Noiseborder Ensemble meets matralab, part 1
This week (March 28-April 3, 2014) the Noiseborder Ensemble hosted a group of artists associated with the matralab project at Concordia University in Montreal led by Sandeep Bhagwati. There were several events over five days, beginning with a performance by Jen Reimer, Max Stein, and Adam Basanta. Jen and Max perform together frequently, often creating drone-based works in unusual acoustic settings such as tunnels or abandoned buildings. We set them up with an 8-channel audio system in a large room under construction in the Engineering building at the University of Windsor; Adam Basanta mapped the audio output into a system for controlling a series of light bulbs hung throughout the space. Very beautiful and hypnotic performance and many good comments from the crowd gathered for the late night event.
