Waterways Transmission 13

Sunday January 28th 2018
7:00 pm—9:00 pm

The thirteenth Waterways event introduced a new dimension to the listening format we have been exploring.

From the beginning, Waterways has been an experiment in how we orient ourselves toward music and how posture directs our ability to receive and feel beauty. If music is the most clear language of emotion, we have wanted to create a format that allows us to experience it completely. Establishing the precepts of Waterways allowed us to begin expanding the forms of sound and composition in the narrative.

For this edition, Jerod Rivera integrated a diverse range of texture, rhythm, and pattern with a modular synthesizer rack along side myself during the set. Modular synthesizers are an inherently improvisational tool that create limitless variations for modifying sound waves. This will be the first example of a collaborative Waterways set.

Jerod Rivera also released a tape of this transmission on his label, Rank Limited. We have tapes available at the Library.
