Thoughts on musical experiences, my own works, and who knows what else.
I’m happy to say that my beloved duo of The Shimmering Haze and Scrapes and Sighs have gained THREE more outings via various online avenues.
Following on from Jesse Austin-Stewart’s Multiple Monophonies installation (Massey University, Feb 2020), composer and contributor David Currie has housed binaural recordings of all the included works on this funky new website called Multi Mono. Check it out: https://multimono.space
PAIRING WITH PEZALOOM
LaTrobe Regional Art Gallery in Victoria, Aus, have created an awesome online project which pairs musical works with select visual artworks from the Gallery collection. I was lucky enough to have Scrapes and Sighs paired with the still, melancholy photography project of artist Pezaloom. It is an interesting visual accompaniment to my work which truly gives it a new interpretation. You can check it out here: https://latroberegionalgallery.com/project/alexis-weaver-pezaloom/
ACMC 2020 LISTENING ROOMS
Both The Shimmering Haze and Scrapes and Sighs have been selected to feature in the ACMC2020 Conference via their online “Listening Rooms,” taking place online at 8am July 6th and 9th. This is a wonderful breakfast hour of new music from composers around the world and I can’t wait to start every morning next week by listening to exciting new electronic works. More info here: www.acmc2020.com
ARS ELECTRONICA FORUM WALLIS FESTIVAL 2020
Finally, both works have been given Highly Commended mentions in the Art Electronica Forum Wallis 2020 Music Festival Acousmatic call-out (try saying that three times fast). While neither work will be programmed in the live festival, you can still catch them as part of the official YouTube video compilation, with more information released soon.
…And with that, I am officially sick of these pieces! It’s really time for me to create some new music.
