Fusing architecture, installation, and performance, Argentinian composer, musician, and media artist Cecilia Lopez (CRF 2015) creates a living acoustic environment that uses the unique architecture of Roulette’s theater as the last show for her Roulette Residency. In RED two large woven wire nets hung from Roulette’s ceiling hold instruments to create a complex feedback organism that reflects and refracts the space into a mesmerizing audio experience. The suspended drums and double bass act as resonant bodies intensified by the instruments simultaneously played in the space by percussionist Gerald Cleaver and bassist Brandon Lopez.
The exploration of sonic feedback and resonant objects is a through-line of Lopez’s current body of work which explores perception and transmission processes focusing on the relationship between sound technologies and listening practices. In her year-long Roulette residency, Lopez has developed a series of sound devices and systems at the intersection performance, sound, and installation, culminating in RED where she in invites listeners and performers to become one with the sonic effects occupying the space.
