1 a.m.: Nina Bar-Giora Rebroadcast of show with Wave Farm intern Nina Bar-Giora hosting, from Wave Farm in Acra, NY. Contact microphone performance: A 30-minute live performance using a homemade piezo disc contact microphone (made in the June Wave Farm sensor-building workshop taught by N.B. Aldrich and Zach Poff), a Line 6 amplifier with a built-in loop system, and a tibetan singing bowl. The singing bowl will be explored using the contact microphone, and the resulting sounds will be amplified and looped through the Line 6. Live looping and overdubbing will be used to create layers of the emerging sounds and explore more possibilities of the sounds generated by the contact mic. I’ll also use the built-in effects of the Line 6 amplifier, such as phaser, reverb, echo, tremolo, and wah, to manipulate the emerging sounds.
3 a.m.: Andrea-Jane Cornell Andrea-Jane Cornell's Liminal Transmission is a theoretical and experiential research-based project concerned with testing the limits of FM radio's frequency response (30Hz - 15kHz).
