ACT | Resonating MIT
May 13 - May 17, 2014
Amplifying Sonic Atmospheres, featuring student work from MIT courses 4.373 and 21M.351, visiting artists Stephen Vitiello and Scanner, and the Either/Or ensemble.
The MIT Program in Art, Culture and Technology (ACT) and the MIT Center for Art, Science & Technology (CAST) present Resonating MIT, the culmination of a semester-long interdisciplinary collaboration that deploys sonic interventions to amplify unexplored spatial atmospheres on MIT's historic campus. A series of performances, installations, and a mobile-ready website and app provide gateways to critical spatial inquiries using sound from the past, present, and the speculative future of the Institute. Engaging artistic, architectural, sonic engineering, and research practices, Resonating MIT proposes that listening and resonating are unique methods for understanding space and place, and using art as a catalyzer to amplify transdisciplinary exchange. This week of extra-ocular, sensorial exploration will feature new works produced by MIT students from the Spring 2014 class 4.373 Sound Installations and Sonic Interventions and the works of CAST visiting artists Stephen Vitiello and Robin Rimbaud, aka Scanner, as well as compositions by students from the class 21M.351 Music Composition performed by the avant-garde visiting artist ensemble Either/Or.
