Memories and Visions
Interactive Sound Installation and Performance by Marcin Pączkowski
OCTAVE 9, Raisbeck Music Center - Benaroya Hall
Contemporary Music Marathon: Saturday, MARCH 23–Sunday, MARCH 24, 2019
12am–7am – Featuring composer and performer Marcin Pączkowski
This new work, commissioned by Seattle Symphony and created specifically for the Octave 9 venue, takes listeners on a journey through sound environments reimagined in this particular space. Throughout the night, it will alternate between multi-modal open-ended interactive sound installation and closed-form live computer music performance. The composer will at times operate motion sensors, at times play instruments, while at other times oversee the musical processes developing autonomously according to predefined and stochastic procedures. The audience will be invited to freely switch between watching, listening, and dreaming.
