LAURIE SPIEGEL’S A HARMONIC ALGORITHM PRESENTED BY SETH CLUETT + CONVERSATION WITH TARA RODGERS

Thursday, September 10, 2020 - 8:00pm to Friday, September 11, 2020 - 7:55pm

Thursday, September 10th, ISSUE streams a 360 degree video presentation of electronic music pioneer Laurie Spiegel’s piece A Harmonic Algorithm 2011 coordinated in collaboration with composer and artist Seth Cluett. A work first created through a computer algorithm coded by Spiegel, the piece is spatialized at ISSUE’s 22 Boerum theater by Cluett, Artist-in-Residence at NOKIA Bell Labs. Working in dialogue with Spiegel on the multi-channel loudspeaker array at Bell Labs, Seth Cluett has created a new diffusion of the work that will take advantage of the unique acoustics of 22 Boerum Place.

The September 10th stream will also be followed by a conversation between Spiegel, Cluett, and multi-instrumentalist composer and historian Tara Rodgers discussing the collaborative process around A Harmonic Algorithm 2011 and in celebration of Spiegel’s 75th birthday.
