Live Stage: Ear to the Earth 2008 [us NYC]

fritz190.jpgARTS ELECTRIC presents EAR TO THE EARTH 2008 :: October 15 – 25 :: Various venues in New York City.

Ear to the Earth 2008 began with the launch of New York Soundscape, a multi-year project to create a panoramic portrayal of the city’s audio personality and urban ecology by composers, sound artists, students, and New Yorkers from all walks of life. The composers this year include Walter Branchi, Francisco Lopez, Alvin Curran, Michael Schumacher, Miya Masaoka, Richard Lainhart, Lo Vid, Marina Rosenfeld, Andrea Polli, Ezequiel Vinao, Charlie Morrow, Helen Fisher, Matthew Burtner, and John Cage.

Don’t miss New York Big Fritz, a multimedia presentation of Times Square around the clock, produced by faculty and students of the NYU Music Technology program, among them Agnieszka Roginska, Paul Geluso, Robert Rowe, Joel Chadabe, and Tom Beyer.

The festival continued with other soundscapes and performances with an ecological bent, including music by Ezequiel Vinao, Charlie Morrow, Helen Fisher, Matthew Burtner and others, and performances by So Percussion, Matthew Burtner, Madeleine Shapiro, Stephen Gosling, and Jenny Chai.

The festival will close with a star-studded New York City first performance of John Cage’s Lecture on the Weather.
