May 28 @ 1:00 pm – 4:30 pm
Aleatoric Audio for an Infinite Island is an experimental sound art event featuring performances and sound installations by artists and musicians from the NYC area working in sound art, generative art-making practices, livecoding, homemade instruments, art and code, experimental voice, modular synth and more. Presented as part of Flux Saturdays by Flux Factory, building 404 on Governor’s Island. This event is held in conjunction with Drone Day, an annual celebration of drone, community, and experimental sounds. Performances will be held outside. Sound installations will be presented indoors and outdoors. In conjunction with artwork presented as part of Parade of the Species, curated by Sally Beauty Twin.
Amelia Marzec – All That Is Seen And Unseen – An installation with projected wycinanki, the Slavic form of papercutting, and sound performance using salvaged technology, objects, and the human voice.
Chirag Davé – Words generated using a markov chain trained on artist’s poetry spoken on a tape loop, accompanied by meandering ambient sounds.
Emily Saltz – Droning Bog: A floating bog that drones as it floats.
ExquisiteCorp – Drone Collector is a playable experimental drone-strument created as part of Drone Jam, presented at A MAZE Berlin/Festival of Games and Playable Media. This procedurally-generated post-apocalyptic environment is made up of terrain and characters generated via machine learning. Each run of the drone-strument produces different terrain levels and audio. Collisions between the player (controlled with arrow keys) and objects change the course of the unfolding drone audio environment.
Sabrina Sims – Interactive mixed media poem and ribbon hanging. Participants will collectively contribute to a contemplative poem installation.
Performances: casualsalad, Easterner, ele-khle-kha, ExquisiteCorp, Emily Saltz, Martha Skou with Performances in Flux, Messica Arson, Patrick Topitschnig and Julian Palacz, Sabrina Sims, windy 500
