March 17, 2024 – Broken Ghost Consort
Interweaving live performance and immersive electro-acoustic sound environments, Broken Ghost Consort performs works that live in a hybrid world of composition, free improvisation, and sound installation. Foundational to the group is the use of “re-embodied sound” techniques, in which gongs, cymbals, and other resonant instruments are activated using small transducers attached to their surfaces and controlled via computer, causing them to sound autonomously. (In addition to the metal percussion, trombone, tuba, piano, viola and contrabass have all been used as resonant devices.)
Alongside these “ghost instruments,” live performers interact with written, structured, and spontaneously improvised materials in an evolving series of works that explore the nature of sound, performance, materiality, and space.
