Soundbox 2 and NYC Sounds Collage at Ear to the Earth

NYSAE also hosted a concert featuring a NYC Sounds collage performed by Jeremy Slater, Andrea Williams and Edmund Mooney with video projections by Jeremy Slater. This spontaneous microcosm of New York City sounds will be followed by SOUNDBOX2 — a spontaneously created piece of “experimental” music where the performers will experiment with the sounds of objects gathered on this evening’s soundwalks intermingling them with the sounds of other objects and devices. Jonny Farrow and Edmund Mooney will conduct these sound experiments within the rarified airspace of an 18″ x 12″ x 12″ plexiglass cube, projecting a live video feed of the cube.

Along with Edmund Mooney and Andrea Williams:

Jonny Farrow is a sound artist, composer and performer of new sound works, is co-chair of the New York Society for Acoustic Ecology, and has an M.A. in musicology. His compositions and performances make use of instruments, field recordings, the sounds of small objects and other prepared sounds. He often creates a theatrical element for the presentation of his works highlighting the relationship of the artist’s body to sound-making practice. Website: www.jonnyfarrow.net

Jeremy D. Slater is a sound artist essentially, but also works with video and sound in performance and installation settings. He uses his laptop computer to create a variety of sound, image, and interactive work. Jeremy was one of the 1999 recipients of the Computer Art Fellowship from New York Foundation of the Arts (NYFA) and has exhibited and performed nationally and internationally. http://www.jeremyslater.net
