Amina Kirby and Jess Tambellini, Handmade Electronic Instruments
Amina Kirby and Jess Tambellini are recent Master’s degree graduates at Mills College where they developed their skills as composers, performers and technicians. Their duet performance features exclusively handmade electronic instruments of their own design and assembly built during their attendance at Mills. The instruments utilize sequencing, audio feedback, radio and analog synthesis to create waves of tension and release throughout the performance.
Monopiece + Rodolfo Cordova
Monopiece is a trio consisting of Nathan Corder on Electronics, Matt Robidoux on Guitar and Tim Russell on Percussion, which formed at Mills College in the Fall of 2017. They represent three parallel lines, meeting at infinity, conceiving the singular. For every show, a traveler is invited to join in on this journey towards the infinite, unveiling new and exciting facets formed in improvisational performance. This performance will feature the vocalist Rodolfo Cordova-Lebron.
This performance is part of EEP! … an (E)lectronic (E)nsemble (P)erformance Weekend
About EEP: Electronic music today is dominated by production, where musical flow is pre-recorded and we sing along slaved to its rhythm. Live electronic music survives mostly as a solo genre, since performers aren’t needed to produce every possible sound. But EEP! … music is a social practice! This weekend features electronic musicians who play live music together, because electronics allow us as artists to connect and converse musically in crazy and wonderful new ways. This mini-festival also celebrates the new multichannel sound system at C4NM generously provided by Meyer Sound, which is meant to encourage more electronic music at C4NM. Two free workshops (6/11 & 6/12) precede the weekend shows to invite the community to participate in experiencing electronic music in our space.
