Join us on April 2nd at 7PM PST for an evening of synchronized performances from 3 unique and separate locations across the globe.
For ‘Displacements,’ sound artists and electronic musicians Annie Aries, Brian House and Marcel Zaes revisit the experimental beats that they made as a part of their collaborative installation, Metric Displacement. With an assemblage of analog synthesizers, open source software, and resampled vinyl loops, they retake these same beats and textures, but this time to unfold them in a set that oscillates between saturated rhythmic textures and driving beats.
A special, one-time-only, rebroadcast of the event will take place at 10AM PST on April 3rd.
Annie AriesComposer & Musician
In the world of modular synthesizers and patch cords, Annie explores, performs and composes music and opens up sonic spaces between electronica and experimental sounds. In her works, she creates minimalistic sound textures and recurring rhythmic patterns that organically interweave, distance and disappear. With her bands Aries Zaes, Volca Massaker Orchester and Berg & Berg she regularly tours in Europe.
Brian House (b. 1979 in Denver, US) is an artist who investigates the politics of time in human and nonhuman systems. Incorporating sound, computation, and multidisciplinary research, his practice has traversed subjects from geolocation infrastructure to urban rats. Currently, House is Assistant Professor of Art and Studio Head of Digital Media at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon. He holds a PhD in Computer Music from Brown University. brianhouse.net
Marcel ZaesArtist & Researcher
Marcel investigates mechanical time with an interdisciplinary framework and is currently pursuing his Ph.D. in Music & Multimedia Composition at Brown University. His creative practice consists of assemblages of self-made software code that act as mechanical timekeepers and human performers who they play “against,” thereby creating an affective potential to re-think the gap between what is conceived of as “human” versus “mechanical” temporality.
