  • An evening of A/V performance presented by Cosmic Sound and hosted at Pittsburgh's Mattress Factory. Jeremy Bible — Human Savagery (in 8.2 channel surround sound) Human Savagery pairs Bible’s powerful & moving, symphonic ambient compositions with his vivid ultra-HD aerial cinematography – which contrast the alien beauty of untouched mountains and desert landscapes with the chemical violence of EPA Superfund sites ravaged by industry. Bible has visited sites across the United States to create this footage, capturing a gripping snapshot of humanity’s often unseen footprint on this planet. Jeremy Bible is an American transdisciplinary artist focused on the intersection of sound and light. Taking cues from his background in field recording and photography, his work occupies a shared space between multi-channel audio-visual installation and compositional practice. Utilizing acousmatic sonic diffusion techniques, Bible strives to construct an environmental experience that is at turns profoundly sensory and beautifully surreal. Spednar + REW — Computational Chiaroscuro (8.2 channel performance) Combining live-coded sound and responsive programmatic visuals, Pittsburgh’s Kevin Bednar and Rachel Wagner have created an audio/visual piece which entwines minimalism and maximalism through a monochromatic lens. The performance presents fleeting and evasive visual states informed by shifting rhythmic structures. Composed using Python, vvvv, Processing, and Resolume – the visuals augment an intentionally absent aural pallet to complete a multisensory experience. {arsonist} + Char Stiles Pittsburgh's {arsonist} (Danielle Rager) and Char Stiles use live coded audio and visuals to create simulated ecologies. Musical phrases dynamically constrain rules of automaton interactions, leading to the genesis and destruction of synthesized life forms and their sounds. The symbiotic exchanges of the virtual organisms mirror the macro system of feedback between the model and the humans generating the collaborative A/V experience. AA — $10 — Tickets available at door 500 Sampsonia Way Pittsburgh, PA
