P)Space presents Peter V. Swendsen

07:00 pm - 03/08/2018

@ SPACES

2220 Superior Via
Cleveland OH  44113



Inspired by Julia Christensen's Waiting for a Break, composer Peter V. Swendsen presents an evening of electroacoustic sound with its own origins in ice and water. Christensen and Swendsen are longtime friends and colleagues who share a fascination with the natural world and seek to share this through their work in a variety of media. Alongside Christensen's time-lapse videos of the ice formation on Lake Erie, Swendsen will present a sonic collage of field recordings and recent compositions, including selections from his 2014 CD, "Allusions to Seasons and Weather." He will be joined by violist, Corey Worley, and percussionist, Justin Gunter.

Peter V. Swendsen is interested in creating a sense of place for performers and listeners, often by using field recordings and real-world processes in music that combines acoustic instruments with electronics. Several such pieces are featured on his recent CD, "Allusions to Seasons and Weather." In 2016, he premiered What Noises Remain, an evening-length work for percussion, electroacoustic sound, text, and video, co-created with percussionist Jennifer Torrence and based on Shakespeare's The Tempest. A professor at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, where he chairs the Technology in Music and Related Arts department, Swendsen studied at Oberlin, Mills College, and the University of Virginia, and spent a year in residence at the NoTAM studios in Oslo as a Fulbright Fellow. He has created over forty scores for dance, including recent collaborations with David Shimotakahara at Ground Works Dance Theater in Cleveland and Amy Miller at Gibney Dance in New York City. He and Jay Ashby composed the score for The Foreigner's Home, a documentary by Oberlin colleagues, Rian Brown and Geoff Pingree, which will screen at the Cleveland Museum of Art in April 2018.
