To be used in multimedia performance
The composers Ben Neill and Mimi Goese have put out a call for short videos (less than a minute long) that feature the Hudson River — video shot after Hurricane Sandy is of particular interest, at any length — for a multimedia piece called Fathom: Hudson River Data as Music.
Neill and Goese are translating data collected by the Beacon Institute into electronic music. Each parameter chosen for Fathom, including barometric pressure and electrical conductivity (salinity), will become a different sound, instrument or vocal part.
Video specifications are available at mimigoeseandbennneill.com. Fathom will debut on Nov. 17 at the Towne Crier Café. To reserve a seat, visit bire.org/events.
