Guest Artist: Dafna Naphtali

Location: 853 7th Ave. (54th St)

Date: July 24, 2014  7-9pm

Singer, instrumentalist, electronic music composer Dafna Naphtali presentsString Activated: Electro-acoustic process for strings. How can you best use electronics with your playing as a string player ?   What technical choices do we need to make ?   What are the musical implications of the technology and how can we best harness it as improvisors ?   Together we will listen to and experience hands on many kinds of electronics, processing of string sound-- delays/polyrhythms, filtering, pitch shift, munging/chopping of sound and distortion, and simultaneously learn more about acoustics  and psychoacoustics, and how we hear sound and can control it.
