The Sound Room presents Levy Lorenzo with Dan Dehaan and Ryan Ingebritsen
The Sound Room is a concept of presenting electronic and electro-acoustic works in a unique architectural environment. Core members Dan Dehaan, Kyle Vegter, and Ryan Ingebritsen founded the idea in 2012 with a High Concept Labs residency where they turned the old HCL space into a giant 16 channel speaker system and created work specific to its architecture. The Sound Room brings this concept to the National Museum of Health and Medicine featuring guest artist Levy Lorenzo (percussionist, composer and sound designer for ICE) with works by Dehaan, Ingebritsen, and Lorenzo. This sonic event will be hyper-focused on the present time and space. Engaging with the museum's architecture itself, the electronic compositions presented will be a hybrid of sound artifacts that respond directly to current activity and live performed electronic music to complement a constant soundscape. Levy Lorenzo, will perform live-electronic music using new instruments that he has designed from objects such as teacups, joysticks, iphones, and the laptop keyboard itself. Dehaan and Ingebritsen will also present solo electronic works. These discrete performances will serve as punctuations, interjections and response to the ongoing sound installation in the room.
