“Listening in Reverse” — two concerts

WESCFAFrom Randi Plake:

“Listening in Reverse” is a two-day conference focused on influences–forgotten, hidden, suppressed, or just not considered–and featuring concerts, talks, presentations, and other interventions. The premise that any sound, object, or behavior can reward close attention and, consequently, can act as source, material, or shaping influence for a piece of music is more or less foundational to musical experimentalism. Equally foundational is that the music made offers an experience independent from these influences. But listeners, whether they are composers or performers or audience members, are rarely innocent of a desire for meaning. And that meaning may be found inside the experience of a piece and outside in anything that shaped the piece, or in the interplay between the two.

Jewish Resistance at Aipac: Wesleyan Community Action Meeting

Matilda Ostow ’17 and Josh Bloom ’17 write in:

hello Wesleyan community!! we (matilda & josh) just completed a two day training with IfNotNow–a movement led by young Jews leading a Jewish resistance and seeking to end American Jewish support for the occupation.

we think the goals of this movement match up with a lot of feelings that young people across our country and on this campus specifically are feeling right now: the desire to fight for freedom and dignity for all! If you’re interested in learning more about this amazing organization that is fighting for the rights of palestinians, jews, and oppressed people’s all over the world and the HUGE action that they will be doing protesting outside of the annual AIPAC conference on March 26th, come to this event! It will be an inclusive space for learning, discussing, and understanding how we can develop our desires for resistance into organizing and action.

EMG Presents: Analog On

An exciting invitation to a super-cool concert, courtesy of the Experimental Music Group:

Analog On is an experimental electronic music ensemble that composes and performs on vintage analog electronics and modular synthesizers. The group consists of Shauna Caffrey on oscillator, saw and electronics, and Richard Duckworth on modular synthesizer and effects. Analog On made their debut at the Ideopreneurial Entrephonics II festival in Dublin, Ireland, in April 2016, and just finished recording their first release on the iconic Moog System 55 in the cockpit of the Moog Sound Lab at the Tonmeister Studio in Surrey. The aesthetic is that of the time-warp cultist with retro and future aesthetics co-existing in the same cultural and temporal space.

They will play tracks from the album in America as a musical homecoming for Richard Duckworth, as he studied analog synthesis under Herb Deutsch at Hofstra University in the 1980s: this is where he was first introduced to the Moog modular system and he spent many hours in the electronic music studio experimenting with voltage-controlled systems. Shauna Louise Caffrey is a musicology major at Trinity College, Dublin. Her life-long love of experimental soundtrack led her to join Analog On, and since then she has delighted in the creation of ‘weird noise’ and bizarre soundscapes through mixed media.

Free concert — all are welcome!

Date: Friday, March 3rd
Time: 8:00 p.m.
Place: Memorial Chapel
