On August 13 + 14, Norte Maar with Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.) hosted the Irish electronic (experimental) sound group Strange Attractor in collaboration with Harvetsworks, at the historic Harvestworks location in SoHo.
The durational performance lasted 4 hours and was both meditative and provocative. Bells, sticks, rocks, strings, drums, guitars, mini record players, trash bags, and more were played. Questions arose about seeing the sound versus hearing it. How does our experience of the sound change when we know how it is made? The group played with morphology of sounds and included recordings of John Cage’s voice throughout the night.
