About the Event
Paralingustics considers the mouth as a site of poetic vocalics, gathering expressions of blowing, breathing, whistling, singing, and speaking into a room to expand the field of our oral imaginary.
Johann Diedrick (he/him) is an artist, engineer, and educator who makes listening rooms for encountering new sonic possibilities off the grid. His performances, installations, and sculptures surface resonant histories of past interactions inscribed in material and embedded in space, peeling back vibratory layers to reveal hidden memories and untold stories. He shares his tools and techniques through listening tours, workshops, and open-source hardware/software.
Tommy Martinez will perform a live set for "Imitation Systems," spatialization software designed by the artist for spectral multichannel resynthesis.
Tommy is a New York City based artist working mostly through music and code.
The CT::SWaM Plasticity Office is a sound installation and temporary spatial sound studio inside Fridman Gallery’s office/showroom, designed by sound engineer/artist Daniel Neumann. The installation-system will feature a rotation of performers who will be activating it as a space for events, presentations, workshops, experiments, talks, discussions, etc. The recordings of these activations will get integrated into the regular, daytime installation as added content, which will accumulate and change over the run of the show.
