Operating under the name Composers Inside Electronics, John Driscoll, Phil Edelstein and Tom Hamilton become the group known for pioneering home-built electronics and early "Circuit Bending." In this concert, they present new and classic electronic works including "Speaking in Tongues" (2011) by John Driscoll for ultrasonic instruments, "Rainforest I" (1968) by David Tudor for amplified table-top resonant objects, and a collaborative improvisation. Recorded December 2011 at Experimental Intermedia Foundation in New York.
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.more
