Room Pieces Troy 2010

Michael J. Schumacher
October 1, 2010—January 21, 2011
EMPAC — Troy, NY, USA

Room Pieces Troy 2010 continues Michael Schumacher's site specific, multi-channel, extended duration sound installations. The installation is characterized by a wide variety of acoustic phenomena, including field recordings, recordings of musical instruments, sound "objects," spoken words, and computer generated tones, and employs various strategies for the articulation of these sounds, with particular use made of numerical sequences. Each manifestation of Room Pieces takes on a unique identity based on the space in which it is installed. EMPAC's immense size, acoustics, incredible variety of background sounds, and the 100-plus speaker sound system provide a rich and challenging environment. The result is an ever-changing soundscape that is both pleasurable and unpredictable. Audio Systems Programmer: Jeff Svatek
