Resonance: Fear of the Object
Resonance consists of site-specific music events presented annually by Austin percussionist Chris Cogburn (Founder + Executive Director, No Idea Festival). This edition of Resonance features Cogburn’s audio-visual ensemble with Norwegian pioneering video artist Kjell Bjørgeengen entitled Fear of the Object. Joined by Norwegian micro-tonal tuba player Martin Taxt and Australian cellist Judith Hamann, Fear of the Object is a site-specific event utilizing live video and sound performance to put into dialogue the architectural resonances and dissonances found within physical space, sound and light.

Fear of the Object: Artist Statement:
Fear of the Object is a site-specific event utilizing live video and sound performance to put into dialogue the architectural resonance/dissonance found within physical space, sound and light. Percussionist Chris Cogburn sets into motion resonant objects (cymbals, bells, snare drum) in relation to Taxt’s subtle textures and fleeting harmonics on the micro-tonal tuba. Cellist Judith Hamann investigates various pulsing or vibrational aspects of playing, including rhythm, tremor, vibrato, and wolf tones— overtones that occur when a bowed note matches the resonating frequency of an instrument. A range of sine tones set to perfect ratios for each object’s unstable harmonics augments tensions between the acoustic and the electronic. Audio generated video projected from Bjørgeegen is fed back into sound to blur distinctions between hearing and seeing. Physicality turned aesthetic without the beautiful.
