Artist-in-Residence: Sergei Tcherepnin with Woody Sullender
Artist-in-Residence Sergei Tcherepnin and Woody Sullender construct sites for listening, touching, and direct engagement with sonic material. Their temporary architecture of tactile speakers disperses the duo's live electronic music in performance. In April, they will present their largest-scale piece yet: a work that will include rooms within rooms, difference tone doorways, and listening tables. As objects and bodies are reorganized in space, musical and physical structures will emerge and disappear.
Sergei Tcherepnin is a Brooklyn-based artist who uses performance, composition, and installation to explore the materiality of sound and its physical and psychological effects on the listener. He has performed throughout NYC as an improviser with piano and modular synthesizer at venues such as the Stone, Roulette, Abrons Art Center, the Whitney Museum, the Tank, Douglas Street Music Collective, Paris London West Nile, and i-Beam Brooklyn. His compositions have been performed by ensembles such as Transit, Da Capo Chamber Players, St Luke's Chamber Ensemble, American Wind Symphony Orchestra, American Symphony Orchestra, at spaces such as Merkin Hall, Cami Hall, Dia:Beacon, Chelsea Art Museum, Diapason Gallery, Louis Kahn's "Point Counterpoint II," National Youth Olympic Stadium (Tokyo), Moscow Composers Union Concert Hall, St. Petersburg Composers Union Concert Hall, and the Fisher Center for Performing Arts at Bard College. His multi-channel performances and installations have been mounted at Audio Visual Arts, Societé (Berlin), Casey Kaplan Gallery, 47 Canal, and Recess Art.
Woody Sullender is an artist based in Brooklyn, NY. His work deals with the socio-political aspects of sound in various arenas such as public space, music, radio, and other media. Recent work includes a disarmed ultrasonic speaker (a technology developed by the LRAD corporation for a variety of sonic weaponry) and a collaboration with Sergei Tcherepnin attempting to push the performance space towards a state of flux, requiring improvisation to navigate social roles and create new structures.
