Evidence CD release

Aug 13, 2008 5:49 am

Evidence (Stephan Moore and Scott Smallwood) celebrate the release of their new CD "Receiver" (free103point9 Audio Dispatch 035), created through a residency at Wave Farm, with a re-imagined performance of the original installation. Bring a radio with batteries! A limited number will be provided. Evidence will be joined by the modern dance company The Extra-Sensory Pedestrians, performing a new work, "Boxed Dances."

Description of original project Evidence will attempt to recreate: "Spheres of Influence (working title)" is a performance/installation of both live-performed and pre-recorded sounds being broadcast through a number of radio transmitters all tuned to identical (or nearly-identical) frequencies. The audience is equipped with radio receivers, and then encouraged to explore the points of “indecision” that exist between the various transmitters. In this way, each audience member participates in the composition/editing of the final piece by performing the interplay between our broadcasted material and the indeterminate artifacts of the transmission/reception process inherent in the installation.

Sound artists Stephan Moore and Scott Smallwood began performing as the duo Evidence in 2001. Focusing on the universe of real-world sound, Evidence pours field recordings like water into their compositional and improvisational process, resulting in music that balances between tight organization and unregulated flow. Using recording equipment, laptops, and other electronic devices, Evidence creates music that deals with gradual change, improvised over time, sometimes atmospheric, sometimes pulsating, always texturally striking and unique. Resisting classification into a single genre, Evidence is equally at home performing in experimental venues, clubs, galleries, planetariums, and rooftops.
