From Troy NY’s Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center:

During a production residency with Rensselaer professor Pauline Oliveros, Lebanese electronic composer Tarek Atoui will offer a performance/workshop called WITHIN 2 on September 24, meant to explore our range of listening abilities beyond simple auditory perception.

On October 8 and 9, electronic musician Mark Fell will debut his first foray into the world of choreography with the multi-genre performance Recursive Frame Analysis, which adds a dancer to his characteristic matrix of strobing light and sound.

On October 15, Canadian sound sculptor France Jobin will treat the Concert Hall with a complex array of loudspeakers for a new multi-channel composition.

Then on the following night (October 16), experimental electronic star Oneohtrix Point Never will premiere a new stage show, currently in development.

Electronic vanguard Tim Hecker returns to EMPAC after recording parts of his breakout album Virgins in the Concert Hall, to develop a new performance of sound and light in Studio 1. He’ll perform on November 12.

Jazz and metal virtuosity collide on December 3, when guitarists Mary Halvorson and Colin Marston share a contrasting double-bill.

Finally, on December 11, electronic innovator Holly Herndon will ride the acclaim of her new album Platform into an EMPAC residency to develop and perform new work.
