BELLINGHAM – Western Washington University’s Department of Music, WWEAMS, and Sound Culture proudly present Carver Audain in an evening of ambient electronic music at 8 p.m. on Sunday, March 10 in Room 16 of the Performing Arts Center.
The performance is free and open to the public.
Audain produces audio using digital signal processing and editing techniques on a variety of environmental and instrumental recordings. His works explore harmonic structures utilizing the “slow change music” method. In a live setting, Audain manipulates and structures these materials into situation-specific compositions. Sonically, he produces an array of slowly shifting sound fields that merge and transform within their physical surroundings.
A resident of Brooklyn, New York, Audain has been an active performer and presenter in the Northeast. He was the first recipient of ISSUE Project Room’s Emerging Composers Commission, care of the Greenwall Foundation, and in 2012 he was awarded an Emerging Artists Commission by Roulette with funds provided by the Jerome Foundation.
In addition to Audain, the concert will also feature the local experimental group Mindmeld.
