In a double bill on May 19th, Marco Donnarumma starts with a performance utilizing the award-winning biophysical instrument Xth sense, that he teaches this weekend in a class at Harvestworks. This is followed by Adam Parkinson’s and Atau Tanaka’s exploitation of a common consumer electronics device, the iPhone.
Marco Donnarumma’s Music for Flesh II is a seamless mediation between human biosonic potential and algorithmic composition. By enabling a computer to amplify and augment the muscle sounds of human tissues, the work approaches the biological body as a means for computational artistry.
Adam Parkinson & Atau Tanaka reappropriate the iPhone and its advanced technical capabilities to transform the consumer object into an expressive musical instrument for concert performance. In a duo, with one in each hand, they create a chamber music, 4-hands iPhone.
