NAISA Space, 601 Christie Street, #252
NAISA is delighted to host a performance by world renowned Dutch sound artist Jaap Blonk who will present his multichannel performance work Polyphtong realized at CCRMA at Stanford University in 2012. In Polyphtong spatial placement and movement are extended by electronic means. The phonetic concepts of diphthong and approximant are an important focus in the more meditative sections of the work. It also uses the techniques of Blonk’s cheek synthesizer: many kinds of stereo mouth sounds driven by sheer air, ranging from very low to extremely high pressures.
