Zosha Di Castri (Assistant Professor, Music) and David Adamcyk (visiting postdoctoral scholar at the Computer Music Center) have created a website to document their new work "Phonobellow" commissioned by the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE).
As the website describes the work: "Phonobellow, a huge bellows, spreads across the stage like an accordion or an old-fashioned camera. Through images, electronics, sculpture, lighting, and live music performed by ICE, Phonobellow captures how deeply two very different technologies--the high-speed camera and the phonograph--resonated with people in 1877, and and how they continue to reverberate to this day."
