Performance by Jay Needham
5925 North Ravenswood Avenue
Chicago, Illinois 60660
Admission free to MSAE members and public
Jay Needham performs This is a Recording, a work for radio and video.
My interest in creating This is a Recording is to recall radio as an instrument of memory, one that is capable of creating historical imaginaries where technologies and the desire to document stories unite. This is a Recording is also a work for video, a reflection on the process of adding to and being a part of historical records. The two works are performed live with a unique mixture of antique sound apparatus, micro-radio transmissions and video projection.
Jay Needham is an artist, radio producer, composer, Professor in the Department of Mass Communications, at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, and President of the American Society for Acoustic Ecology (ASAE). Visit his website for full bio, listen to his sound works, and recent news at www.jayneedham.net
MSAE founder and World Forum for Acoustic Ecology President/ASAE Representative, Eric Leonardson will provide an introduction and brief report on national and international activities in the field. The program will conclude with ample time for questions and answers with Needham and anyone interested the activities of the MSAE. If you are on Facebook join our event.
