Acoustica Electronica

Born from an original Together and New England Conservatory collaboration, Acoustica Electronica is back in Boston Tuesday night, May 13th with another dizzying performance to delight and stimulate. Presented by Touch Performance Art and OBERON, Acoustica Electronica is a spellbinding blend of electronic and classical music elements, dance, and circus arts blazing with theatricality; think Cirque du Soleil + rave.

Performers dangle from aerial silks and swing on hoops above the audience’s head while flitting ballerinas and live musicians mix into the truly “spectacular” onslaught.

To wet your lips they offer a special cocktail flight, each drink crafted to match scenes of the show.

A Song for Echo
"A Song for Echo" was produced by Brooklyn-based video and performance artist Julie Nymann (http://julienymann.com/) and includes an original soundtrack by Boston-based electronic music composer Ricardo Donoso (http://ricardodonoso.com/). The exhibition is a fully immersive experience, utilizing the entirety of the Museums 57-foot planetarium dome. 

Nymann produces video and performance works which recite the inherent dualities embodied in folklore and present in all people. She emphasizes the acts of self-attraction, repulsion, intimacy, and distance. Boston-based Donoso produces emotional soundscapes that become "a mirror in which the illusions we hide ourselves behind are dissolved." A Song for Echo’s central character embarks on a spiritual journey through earth and water, attempting to discover herself and her relationship to the elements before nightfall. 

All ages, $15

I Dream of Wires Documentary Screening and Discussion
On the closing night of our festival, as part of our film program, we'll be screening I Dream of Wires at the Institute of Contemporary Art. Robert Fantinatto's documentary is billed as a “film about the phenomenal resurgence of the modular synthesizer, exploring the passions, obsessions, and dreams of people who have dedicated part of their lives to this esoteric electronic music machine.” And in many regards, it's the perfect cap to our week-long program, largely because if it wasn't for those above referenced obsessives, there wouldn't be a Together. The sound procured from those machines is the closest thing we have to an auditory calling card. To see that in action, look no further than the fact that one of Fantianatto's featured interviewees will be taking up residence at the Lily Pad upon the conclusion of the screening.

After the screening their will be a discussion on modular synthesizers with Joe Paradiso (MIT), Dr. Richard Boulanger of Berklee and modular synth guru Keith Fullerton Whitman.

All ages, $8 students and ICA members/$12 Get your tickets here.
