  • They Shoot Lasers, Don't They? - Adam Tinkle and Joe Mariglio - aka CREOSOTA

    Date: 
    Mon, 02/09/2015 - 7:30pm - 9:00pm
    Location: 
    CCRMA Stage
    Event Type: 
    Concert

    Electroacoustic musicians and sound sculptors Adam Tinkle and Joe Mariglio - henceforth collectively known as Creosota - explore the visual, sonic, and theatrical potentials of projected light, vibrated fluids, and laser microphony, in works inspired by Inferometrics. Inferometric techniques are best known for their use in Cold War-era spying. Shine a laser at a window, measure the displacement of the reflection--poof, you have the sound of the conversation occurring inside the room. Creosota's reframing of this technology and the resulting artistic revelations may also prove helpful for those seeking to welcome Musean hypernumbers, cymatics, or music tuned to 432Hz into their lives!

Séverine is a member of both Elision Ensemble (Australia) and of Multilatérale (Paris). Her work focuses on regular performance of key works of the cello repertoire, as well as numerous collaborations with composers; in addition, her research as an improviser has helped her to extend the sonic and technical resources of her instrument. She regularly gives masterclasses for composers at Harvard University, the Hochschule für Musik in Stuttgart, at the University of Huddersfield, the University of California Berkeley, and at the Tzlil Meudcan composition course (Israel).
