The 2019-20 season of Musical Ecologies opens Thursday, September 19th with New York-based composer and audio technologist Anastasia Clarke. The evening will center around a realization of her ongoing work Crushed Matrices, a piece that incorporates crystal singing bowls, the shards of broken crystal singing bowls, and electronics. First performed in 2017, this will be the sixth iteration of Crushed Matrices. The evening will also include a performance of new work for solo electronics and voice. The evening will begin with a conversation hosted by series curator Dan Joseph.

Now it its seventh season, Musical Ecologies is a monthly symposium on music and sound held at the Old Stone House in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Curated and hosted by composer Dan Joseph, each event typically focuses on a single artist who presents a work or project either in the form of a talk or lecture, a multimedia presentation, a performance, or combination thereof. Each presentation is preceded by an extended conversation between the artist and curator.

About the artist:

Anastasia Clarke is a New York-based composer, performer, and audio technologist working in live embodied electronic music performance. Anastasia’s solo and collaborative projects use custom musical instruments and performing systems, functioning as sites for research and meaning-making around the subjects of physical instrument interaction, improvisation, and the healing efficacies of sound and listening work. In addition to performing in venues ranging from galleries and concert halls to DIY venues and intimate house shows across the United States, Anastasia has recently given talks and hands-on presentations of work with electronic hardware and software at NIME 2018, Expo ’74, The School for Poetic Computation, and Barnard College. Anastasia earned an MFA in Electronic Music and Recording Media from Mills College in 2018. In 2019, she is the recipient of a New Works Grant from the Queens Arts Fund, and will spend time in residence at EMS in Stockholm.
