Selections from the New England Primer (Part 1)
An interactive sound installation that I collaborated on along with the amazing gadgeteer (and probable mad genius) Matt Gilbert is up for most the month of September at Whitespace Gallery in Atlanta. If you're in the Atlanta area, come out and bang on Matt's machines... it will be unlike anything you've done.
The keyboard triggers samples from recordings of lessons from the New England Primer and manipulates the ambient sound in the room. Also included are schoolyard recordings from the Grant Park neighborhood school and samples from the 1953 instructional film for children, “How Quiet Helps Us at School”.
