  Lebanese sound artist Tarek Atoui returns to the region to present the final version of a project he has developed around the world and with students at RPI under the instruction of Pauline Oliveros. The group will perform on instruments they have invented to perform music to a hearing-impaired audience.

Atoui has been working in collaboration with Distinguished Research Professor of Music Pauline Oliveros and her students from the New Instrumentation for Performance seminar to think through propositions for new instruments and performance techniques. Several instruments that Atoui has been developing concurrently will be played throughout the public spaces of EMPAC and broadcast into the Concert Hall. The audience will be encouraged to explore the acoustic relationships between individual instruments and the architecture that they inhabit.

The project – Within – will be presented at EMPAC on Friday night at 8PM.
