For sound artists, composers and electronic musicians working independently, the opportunity to work with multi-channel playback and quadrophonic playback are rare. Even rarer, the chance to engage, explore and collaborate in these environments. The Willows Nest is collaborating with Berin-based sound artist and programmer Matt Burnett to bring regularly scheduled “Open Jack Nights” to The Willows Nest. Artists can bring sound files to diffuse through the house system on a first-come, first served basis. During this introductory event we’ll introduce you to the system, playback a few quad sound examples and sign up to participate at the next event.
Participants will enjoy immediate sonic feedback on their work, and hang out networking with other electronic musicians and sound artists interested in spatialized sound. We are a casual, home-based, and collaborative space – so no need to feel intimidated about trying things for the first time. Matt Burnett has developed an iPad based interface to control playback in real time that’s pretty intuitive and easy to use – so we can all experiment and learn together. Participants in these open jack nights will also have the opportunity to present their work during regularly scheduled concerts at The Willows Nest.
This introductory event is free and open to the public! Anyone who might be interested in presenting work is warmly encouraged to reserve a spot. Spaces are limited for this so reserve early.
Bookings are closed for this event.
