Doron Sadja - Color Field Immersion: The Gentle Caress Of A Stone Wall
 
Based loosely on Ganzfeld experiments (a technique used in parapsychology in the 1970s as a way of invoking telepathy), Color Field Immersion involves masking the audience with semi-transparent blindfolds onto which light projections are mapped. Similar to sensory deprivation, Color Field Immersion provides perceptual deprivation, replacing the entirety of each audience member’s visual field with washes of color, line, and movement – often inducing hallucinations as the brain seeks to replace lost stimuli. Flipping the traditional performer-audience relationship, the internalized experience becomes the location of the performance. Combined with rich, textural soundscapes, Color Field Immersion creates a deeply immersive perceptual architecture of sound and vision.

Tonight's performance will be working with sounds from The Gentle Caress of a Stone Wall, a new work which will be premiered the following week at the Institut für Elektronische Musik und Akustik in Graz on their unique 24 speaker sound system. Using Impulse Response reverb, the technique in which the acoustics of a physical space can be modeled using recorded audio from a location, The Gentle Caress of a Stone Wall explores the sonic materiality of architectural space - not as an effect or simulation, but as an instrument in and of itself. Using this same technique of acoustical modeling, the work also examines what kind of inherent architecture could be embedded in a sound devoid of space (what are the physical dimensions of a clarinet note, a brass chord, or the timbre of a human voice?).

Doron Sadja is an American artist, composer, and curator whose work explores modes of perception and the experience of sound, light, and space. Working primarily with multichannel spatialized sound – combining pristine electronics with lush romantic synthesizers, extreme frequencies, dense noise, and computer-enhanced acoustic instruments, Sadja creates post-human, hyper-emotive sonic architecture. Sadja has published music on 12k and Shinkoyo records; performed at PS1 MoMa NYC, CBK Center for Contemporary Art Amsterdam, STEIM/Bimhuis, and Norberg Festival; been commissioned to write work for the String Orchestra of Brooklyn; been in residency at EMS Stockholm and iii in den Hague; and collaborated with Tony Conrad, Audrey Chen, and Aki Onda amongst others.
