Scott Miller will be premiering The Strange Fine-Tuning of our Universe with flutist/improviser Anne La Berge at the Kyma International Sound Symposium (KISS) 2013 in Brussels on Friday, Sept. 13 at Espace Senghor, in a 70+ speaker acousmonium. The work is an ecosystemic structured improvisation, where the behavior of sound in the space is tracked and used to control the production of new sound in the space. While at KISS2013, Scott will also host pre-conference Open Labs and perform an electroacoustic improv set with Eckard Vossas, Jan Van Kelst & Robert Jarvis at the Rock Classic, Rue Marché au Charbon 55 à Bruxelles on Sunday Sept. 15.
MAZE is a new electroacoustic ensemble dedicated to performing music that challenges the idea of fixed form and a fixed listening perspective. The aim of the ensemble is to offer the listener different forms of navigating their own path in the music. This is found in not only the repertoire, but the musicians’ approach and their performance practice.
Encompassing repertoire from the experimental tradition of John Cage, Alvin Lucier, Tony Conrad and Robert Ashley up to the contemporary work of artists such as Christian Marclay, Elliott Sharp and ensemble members Anne La Berge and Yannis Kyriakides, the aim of the ensemble is to build a body of work that reinterprets the relationships between performer and music, and audience and performer.
