Volumetric Society: Sonic Sculpture with Taras Mashtalir and Marina Korsakova-Kreyn

Join the Volumetric Society of New York and Harvestworks in presenting Russian sonic artist Taras Mashtalir and Cognition and Neuroscience scholar Marina Korsakova-Kreyn showcasing the unique relationship between sonic interfaces, form and the brain. This lecture, which has been previously been given at the MIT Media Lab will cover the concept of sonic sculpture, an interactive multimedia artifact that consists of an urban sculpture, either static or kinetic, accompanied by sound design in a multichannel configuration.
SonicSculptureConventional urban sculpture is silent. However, it is surrounded by sounds of the city and the constant stream of those sounds constitutes “sonic pollution.” By introducing sound design we refine urban microclimates and eliminate the sonic pollution by embracing the sounds of the city and including them in a composition that becomes a soundscape. The purpose of such a soundscape is to breath life into static sculptures and to create harmonious sonic aesthetics in the urban environment.
Sonic sculpture could benefit from data obtained in recent behavioral studies in music perception, particularly when the data is related to emotional responses to music. Moreover, sonic sculpture promises to make impact on music education by providing visual illustrations for explanation of quasispatial properties of melodic space and melodic objects. This might create a new vocabulary for explaining acoustics and music for learners of various background.
Taras Mashtalir is an artist, composer and sound designer, a classical musician turned electronic sound producer. His compositions are unique blend of different genres morphed together and wrapped into a new aesthetic fabric of electronic ambiance. For the past 12 years Taras has produced numbers of albums, collaborating with many major artists. The works also include multimedia installations, soundtracks for the films and animations, as well as music for TV ads and programs like Discovery Science Channel, History Channel, Speed Channel, etc.
Marina Korsakova-Kreyn – PhD in Cognition and Neuroscience. Music philosopher and scholar in music perception and cognition, professional pianist and music teacher

“Covers”, the second original production from the Lost & Found Project, is an interactive play that explores personal family stories about the Russian-Jewish identity experience.
“Covers” looks into family bonds, our choices, our definition of success, and the directions we take that form our lives. All these, which are inevitable products to ourselves and to our relationships, that are the glue of our lives, as well as the possible cause of our downfalls.
“Covers” is a gripping theatrical oeuvre that will transport audiences between decades of lost memories and uncovered experiences.
The Lost & Found Project is an experimental theatre troupe featuring Russian-Jewish actors born in the 70s-80s in the former Soviet Union, who found their way to the United States with their families. Through the process of investigation into personal family histories, weaving together family narratives, legends and personal stories, Lost & Found Project is proud to present COVERS.
Directed by an acclaimed Russian director ALEXANDRE MARINE
Conceived and produced by Anna Zicer
Written by Ruvym Gilman & Boris Zilberman

The End of Light group exhibit

Stravinsky Institute Foundation presents The End of Light – an art event at the Academy. The venue is an architectural gem and an Edwardian landmark that used to house the New York Academy of Science. Its grand neo-classical interiors serve as a backdrop to the two-day show featuring art installations and performances.
The End of Light is a farewell to the mental frame of Enlightenment expressed through a variety of media.
The End of Light presents a group of international artists, who channel their concerns and postmodern ambivalence into painting, sculpture, installation, performance, music, photography and video projection. The artists belong to different generations but they all share fin de siècle sensibilities. The “visible darkness” of our time, appealing to the artist’s intellect rather than his rational (sensory) perception, becomes a common point of departure. The exhibit takes place in the grand old New York Academy of Science building, whose eclectic interior evokes the bygone age of Enlightenment, humanism, and veneration of science. The tension between the harmonious atmosphere of this neoclassical mansion and the liberal spirit of experimentation emanating from the exhibited works adds a layer of fine irony and dialectic complexity.
Curated by Julia Nitsberg
The event is generously supported by the Blavatnik Family Foundation.
