Sound, Systems, and Psychoacoustics
Sound, Systems and Psychoacoustics spans two back-to-back days of performance at Indexical, presented in collaboration with Nada. The mini-festival outlines a contemporary practice in the tradition of electronic music while dramatizing the auditory process as material in itself. The artists featured in this festival foreground the act of listening, offering a means of better understanding the dynamic systems (whether auditory, musical, or human-machine) at play, as well as opening space for aesthetic exploration and meaningful critique. These five featured artists work in aesthetic and theoretical threads spanning psychoacoustics, visual and auditory illusions, and generative systems of sound synthesis and composition.
This series of performances is curated by Michael Masaru Flora, who lives in Ben Lomond and co-runs Nada with Christian Langheinrich.
