This Hyphen Hub Salon focused on 3D immersive sound with two NY based artists—Timothy Fodness and Christina Campanella—who created mesmerizing sonic landscapes. This Salon was presented in conjunction with our partners at Harvest works.
Timothy Fodness is a sound artist, sound designer and writer of short prose. For Hyphen Hub he presented his new work "Spacemen Waving at the Camera". In this 5.1 surround sound installation, twelve written pieces arrived at through automatic writing, journaling, and dream re-interpretation move through worlds blending modular synthesis, sound design, sampling, homemade instruments and field recordings. The result was a magical and engaging storytelling experience for the audience composed of children and adults, who sat on pillows around the perimeter of the room with dimmed lights and getting lost in the dreamy experience of the stories presented by Fondness. 21
Christina Campanella is a leading composer, performer and sound artist in music, theater, visual art, and film. She showcased "I Went to the Lighthouse (And It Wasn't There)", an immersive 3D sound installation that plumbs a world in which the seas have risen—in particular, the uneasy psychic terrain of an inundated New York City. Created in collaboration with Jim Dawson & Latitude 14, Campanella’s impressionistic electronic score is designed for one live performer and a multi-tiered 8.4.1 system of speakers that surrounds the viewer/listener from all sides and above.
The Hyphen Hub Salon took place Friday November 7, 2015 at 7.30 pm with talks by the artists and previews of their sound work.
Campanella's full-length work was shown during the day on Saturday November 8, 2015 (12-5pm) and Fodness' full-length work was shown on Sunday November 9, 2015 (12-5 pm).
