The Line Theater (1984) is an analog, physical mechanism for making visual music. Made of a black fabric screen framed by wooden two-by-fours, with the help of hooks and other metal hardware, differently sized ropes and threads are manipulated, mostly from behind the screen . . . .. ….. .. … Sound & Music > archive

As a composer, sound artist, and researcher, I’m interested in sounds we perceive as “inside” or “outside” performance, and in the ambiguities that may arise at boundaries between them. I’m exploring this idea in a set of pieces for solo performers and webs of animal voices (and their surrounding environments), called Doubtful Sound. Begun during recent residencies at the Virginia Center for the Contemporary Arts, these compositions reference my earlier interactive work with catastrophe theory through their use of time-based network structures as sources of emergent processes. This summer I aim to investigate animal sounds as emergent processes in themselves, through a set of sound installations for the EUC Interfaces project in Cyprus.
On Growth and Form in Experimental Composition and Analysis: Music by Pozzi Escot and James Tenney
On Growth and Form 100 conference – Dundee and St Andrews, Scotland Univerisity of Dundee, 15 October 2017
Research Seminar at the University of York, 18 October 2017
This conference celebrated the centennial of the publication of D’Arcy Thompson’s seminal book On Growth and Form. Its focus on formal similarities across biological and geological phenomena has had a profound impact not only on biological research but also on artists, including architects and musicians. Composer and theorist James Tenney begins two of the chapters of his MetaHodos with quotes from Thompson’s text. My presentation investigates connections between Thompson’s ideas and Tenney’s text, which he used as a basis for early experimental computer-generated pieces realized at Bell Labs in the 1960s. Pozzi Escot’s interest in Thompson is also presented as clearly linking of music and mathematics in her analysis of Chopin’s first Prelude.
