M.V. Carbon is a Brooklyn based composer and sound artist who is recognized for her non-traditional approach to music. She plays stringed instruments through electronics, and uses tape machines, vocals, electronic processes, analog synthesis, frequency, tone and imagery to induce physical commotion. Her current work references magic, interchangeability, and telekinesis.
Performing from the center of the breathing sphere, Seth Cluett will perform a sound work where controlled breathing is used to vocally produce long pure wave sine tones. Accompanied by electronically produced sine tones whose frequencies are derived from room acoustics measurements, the vocal sine tones create a companion activation of acoustic space that operates both within and against the breath induced changes of the light of the sphere.
The work of the American artist and composer Seth Cluett explores everyday actions at extreme magnification, examines minutae by amplifying impossible tasks, and explores the working of memory in forms that rethink the role of the senses in an increasingly technologized society. Creating work ranging from photography and drawing to installation, concert music, and critical writing, his “subtle…seductive, immersive” (Artforum) sound work has been characterized as “rigorously focused and full of detail” (e/i) and “dramatic, powerful, and at one with nature” (The Wire). The recipient of grants from Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Fund and Meet the Composer, his work has been presented in thirteen countries on five continents at venues such as MoMA/PS1, The Kitchen, GRM, and STEIM and is documented on Line, Sedimental, Notice, and Winds Measure recordings. Cluett is an Assistant Professor of Music and Technology at Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken where he teaches courses in electronic music and experimental sound practices.
