Wave Farm is pleased to present a radio broadcast of this live performance, which took place at Fridman Gallery in New York City on July 14 as part of their SO⅃OS: a space of limit as possibility series. Headphone listening is recommended
C. Lavender presents a new site-specific work: “The Impulse Chamber,” that will utilize Fridman Gallery as an unique reverberation room. “The Impulse Chamber” features rapidly moving recordings of tuning forks with percussion and brass instruments made in the anechoic chamber at Bell Labs in Holmdel, New Jersey less than two weeks before the pandemic was declared in the U.S. The nature of the recordings being made in an anechoic chamber and then played out into a reverent space, naturally modifies these recordings into how they sound only within the confines of Fridman Gallery.
Bell Labs, where the recordings were made, was also at the forefront of research and technological innovation for telepresence; a current pervading part of our world that we have learned to adapt to quickly to sustain communication through the pandemic.
This presentation of “The Impulse Chamber” will also feature the debut of the film “Reflections: Azul” created by C. Lavender in May 2020 playing throughout the duration of the performance.
