Theremidi Orchestra has been invited to hold a workshop and performance at CT-SWaM & Eyebeam, New York in September, 2014. CT-SWaM (Contemporary Temporary Sound Works And Music) is Eyebeam’s late night concert series curated by Eyebeam Alumni Daniel Neumann. The workshop will promote the usage of basic electronics to create one’s own instruments and sounds. The ten members of Theremidi Orchestra (TO) will guide and assist participants during a five-day, hands-on and theoretical workshop. Participants will be acquainted with assembling two electronic sound devices and later provide sufficient knowledge on how to play them in noisy group improvisations. The workshop will also provide a framework for aesthetic discussion, from how to improvise and work in a group and understanding the sound ranges of the instruments, to implications of collective feedback loops and concepts of social amplification. Then work collaboratively to develop the live performance.
sound happens in the group!
