Musical Ecologies continues Thursday, April 14th with composer and media artist David Linton. Active in New York City since the late 1970s, Linton is know for his experimental mixed-media performances and installations. For tonight’s performance he will present Citharodeo, a new work for electric guitar that approaches the instrument as “a spatially embedded vibrating medium.” Using extended techniques, non-traditional tunings and rich signal processing, the performance will animate the unique acoustics of the Great Room at the Old Stone House. The evening will begin with a conversation hosted by series curator Dan Joseph.

Founded in 2012, 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 focuses on a single artist, who presents a recent work or project 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:

David Linton is a temporal artist working with physical vibration by way of sound, light, body, voice, word, camera, electronic signal flow, and recorded media – for both performance and installation in situated contexts. Initially a drummer David is a survivor of the downtown New York Noise movement of the late 70’s/early 1980’s and became known for his intermedia collaborations throughout the rest of that decade. In the 90’s he embraced electronic machine performance and Immersionism which led to event design and curating. Utilizing predominantly 20th century tools he has been presenting integrated sound and live signal video performances under the moniker bicamRL AV since the early 2000s. Most recently he’s absorbed paper, ink, & pigment along with found and stressed physical media into his long standing essentially musical practice. In recent years Linton has been concentrating daily effort toward proficiency in regard to his old friend and nemesis, the electric guitar.
