Touch Tones, TV’s, and Time—An Elegy for Debased Media

An exciting invitation to an upcoming performance:

“Touch Tones, TV’s, and Time: An Elegy for Debased Media” is an evening length work by University Professor of Music Ronald Kuivila for singing and speaking voices, live electronics, and various media past their prime. Enumeration and iteration abound in an exploration of the extent to which a listener (human or otherwise) can be trained to be entranced by the entrance of entrainment. The heterophonic kabelsalat that results includes the ring tones, dial tones, and busy signals of the world’s land lines, the Wesleyan carillon in effigy, an electro-ideological party line and an ever-present chorus lurking in a state of auditory denial.

Date: Tuesday, February 25th – tomorrow!
Time: 8:00 PM
Place: Beckham Hall
Cost: FREE!
