Event

Turning Jewels Into Water / Sarah Belle Reid / Memorylessness
Sarah Belle Reid is a Canadian performer-composer, specializing in trumpet and electronics, modular synthesis, and alternate forms of graphical notation for composition and improvisation.  She is a co-developer of the Minimally Invasive Gesture Sensing Interface (MIGSI) for trumpet: an open-source, wireless interface that captures performance data and provides real-time extended sonic and visual control for improvisation. Reid has presented and performed with MIGSI at institutions and festivals around the world including Moogfest, Stanford Universitys Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA), the International Conference of New Interfaces for Musical Expression (NIME 2015: Brisbane, Australia), New Media Art & Sound Summit (NMASS 2017: Austin, TX), University of Oregon, UT Austin, and UC Irvine's Women in Music Technology Symposium (2016), among others.

On this date she will be performing selections from her new album followed by a collaborative piece with Austin performers.

Memorylessness Ensemble Piece: A structured but improvised work. The entirety of the sound will be generated by Thomas Echols and Sarah Belle Reid using MAX MSP running through a quadraphonic speaker system. Austin based ensemble members  will control their individual instrument, which is actually a distinct part of the max patch, using their smart phones or, if they have one to bring, a tablet or laptop. The conductor will follow a graphic score. Between the graphic score and the max patch, sufficient structure will be in place for a roughly 20 minute work.

Turning Jewels Into Water (TJIW) is a live electronic duo led by Indian-born drummer/producer Ravish Momin along with Haitian electronic percussionist Val Jeanty. They seamlessly blend electronic drums, turntables, ritual chants, live loops and synth melodies along with rhythms inspired by global dance music.  Their collaboration, rooted in improvisation, evokes the esoteric realms of the creative subconscious. Drawing from the voodoo religion, Val recreates the ancient rhythm and pulse of Haiti through digital beats, while Momin, whose own musical background is rooted Indian, North African and Middle-Eastern traditions, has developed an original blend of electro-acoustic beats, drawing together the improvisational traditions in Jazz and Indian folk music. Together, they employ cutting-edge music-technological tools such as acoustic drums outfitted with Sensory Percussion triggers, Force Sensing Resistor (FSR) drum pads and Smart Fabric MIDI Controllers, but still emphasize the ritual aspects of creating music in the digital realm. TJIW will be joined by 3 Austin instrumentalists improvising for a portion of their set.
