Cecilia Lopez: Bifurcations / Dos (tres)
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/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 an improvised feedback duet. 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.
