Hardware Hacking

Media Title

Founded in 1966 by Robert Ashley, David Behrman, Alvin Lucier and Gordon Mumma, the Sonic Arts Union was a collective of American experimental composers and musicians who paved the way for electronic music. Ranging from grinding noise to meditative ambient music, many works by SAU members were performed using homemade instruments. As part of its ongoing SAU Retrospective, International House offers a hands-on workshop led by composer and former Lucier student Nicolas Collins. As he did in his book Handmade Electronic Music: The Art of Hardware Hacking, Collins provides simple instructions for how to make contact microphones, oscillators, circuits and other instruments essential for the electronic musician. At 8 p.m., pianist Jenny Lin and violinist Conrad Harris perform music composed by SAU co-founder Mumma. -Elliott Sharp
