For the first concert of her 2019 Roulette residency, artist/composer Cecilia Lopez will present a two-part program, which explores different scales of sound spatiality in Roulette’s theater. The program will begin with Dos (tres) written for brass trio and electronics. By conjuring a very subtle atmosphere and focusing on the directionality of sound, timbre, and specific frequency material, this piece investigates the outcome of a very intimate encounter between instruments/instrument players.
The second part of the evening will feature Bifurcations, the first collaboration between Lopez and composer and artist Aki Onda. Sharing a trajectory based on the use of acoustic feedback and the exploration of space through amplification, this concert is an opportunity for both artists to join forces and present a duo feedback composition. Lopez will be playing her handmade instruments, weaved from speaker-wire; Onda will wield multiple amplifiers and his custom lighting system which responds to the aural environment, expanding the perception of space visually.
