Documentation from Pixilerations, October 12th
The signal has been observed since around 1982. On rare occasions, it is interrupted and a voice transmission takes place. Despite much speculation, the actual purpose of this signal remains unknown. On September 1, 2010, the signal was interrupted by a 38-second fragment of "Dance of the Little Swans" from Tchaikovsky's ballet Swan Lake. A Morse code signal accompanied the fragment.
Performance by BUMPR
Worked on "Adventurometric Devices" with Stephan Moore and Kim Young. Kim navigates a tangle of simultaneous loops, uncovering their interactions through the physical manipulation of their relative phases. The performance will be part of Pixilerations 2012.
Performing sound with other members from Bumpr for Merce Cunningham MinEvent May 3-5 in Stuart Theatre.
"A Grand Gallery" is a new, site-specific composition taking place in the RISD Museum. The physical space of the Grand Gallery becomes the structural back-bone to an hour-long performance. Exploring ideas of chance, juxtaposition, and time, BUMPR (Peter Bussigel, Stephan Moore, Caroline Park, and Tim Rovinelli) will navigate the gallery in a live, structured improvisation using a combination of customized & hand-built electronics, acoustic instruments, and the gallery space. Audience members are free to roam the gallery during the performance and experience the space with new eyes and ears. April 19th from 7:30 - 8:30.
