Byron Westbrook, Corridors



On December 10, 2010, experimental composer Byron Westbrook gave a performance to celebrate his first CD release of the Corridors project on Sedimental Records.

Westbrook is an artist working with the dynamic quality of physical space using multi-channel sound, images, and objects. His audio/video performances under the name Corridors involve the distribution of processed instrumental and environmental recordings through a multi-channel environment. His installation-based work explores unique and participatory listening formats utilizing common technology. Partially composed and partially improvised, Corridors takes pre-processed instrumental improvisations and re-distributes them through a customized multi-channel audio system, reacting to the response of a performance space; video elements are sources of light processed to reduce identification of form, object, and location.

Experimental Intermedia Concerts

RADIO SERIES

A radio series of programs recorded at Experimental Intermedia Foundation (EI), the legendary, influential downtown New York loft venue, incubator, showcase, and community center for composers and experimenters in the arts, known for being first and best at presenting (and recording!) new music and new media since the 70s. The concert series is programmed and produced by composer Phill Niblock who has been directing presentations at Experimental Intermedia since 1973 (well over 1,000 performances) and he is the curator of EI's XI Records label. In 1993, he opened a satellite space with window gallery in Ghent, Belgium. For more on the concert series, recordings, archives, and other intermedia adventures of Phill Niblock around the globe visit the Experimental Intermedia Foundation site. This radio project is a partnership between Experimental Intermedia Foundation and The Clocktower Gallery and its radio station at ARTonAIR.org. The series is produced and managed with the generous efforts of Byron Westbrook.
