Null Point: Sounding Landscape

Null Point, an interdisciplinary arts initiative, presents a day-long, continuous environmental music event, featuring the Rochester premiere of David Dunn's PLACE (part 6) as well as recent works by Null Point composer-performers Ethan Hayden, Lena Nietfeld, and Colin Tucker.

The works place human bodies, microphones, computers, speakers, and found materials in dialogue with live environmental sounds using techniques of sound synthesis, improvisation, and focused listening. The resulting sonic textures disorient the ability to distinguish between live sounds and their mediated reproductions, opening possibilities for imagining and embodying the connections between human and environment.
