Event Details

New York-based artist Lori Napoleon converts vintage telephone equipment into synthesizers and sequencers as part of her multimedia performance. Featured in the 2014 movie, “I Dream of Wires,” she describes herself as an artist who integrates science and technology, treating the electronic studio as a laboratory for sculpting emergent patterns and textures. She uses her customized machines to create analog audio excursions inspired by and including the cryptic sounds of archival field recordings of phone hackers, called “phone phreaks.” These historical sources include analog relay switching systems, errant radio transmissions, cross-continental echo and message interferences between wires.

Event is free and open to the public.

Antenes’ signal path transforms synthesizers into sequences that burst with percussive energy,
bouncing sound through sound like so many fuzzy AM radio stations during a late night drive.                                                .
