The week of September 30-October 5 we had a change of gears with our EMF AIR Cal Fish. Cal worked on a number of projects simultaneously, including his collaboration, with Kyle Marshall Choreography + Company who were also at Alfred for The Marlin Miller Dance Residency Program. Cal further developed live electronics that trigger sounds that are controlled by body motion, for this and other developing projects.
In the IEA studio Cal did numerous recordings that featured live-performance for camera, as well as a catalog of recordings he had brought with him. In these recordings Fish used the ATEM video mixer, mixer effects and other real-time video processing software. Cal left with the IEA archive an impressive fifty-six titled recordings. For his final project of the week, Cal installed his interactive sound installation, Pre York River Sounds (Iteration 2) in the lobby of Harder Hall. The Alfred community physically engaged the piece by carrying buckets with speakers in them activating the electronics, sculpture-space and catalog of interviews and recordings embedded in the installation.
