Performance  |  Concert: The Carrier Band

Friday, November 18, 2011, 8–9:30 pm

The Carrier Band was formed in 1998 when Pauline Oliveros, Peer Bode and Andrew Deutsch performed three improvisations at Alfred University and later released the Carrier CD on DL. For this event, the Carrier Band will re-create ‘Automatic Inscription of Speech Melody,' an improvisation by the Carrier Band based on quotes written in the technical notebooks (1934-1949) of pioneering electronic instrument developer Harald Bode. The piece weaves words and phrases excerpted from the notebooks spoken and vocoded by Peer Bode through the Bode Vocoder. The vocoder transfers speech onto pitched sounds and the VOICE releases the CARRIER sounds. These texts are mixed with loops and excerpts of Harald Bode's demo tapes and synthesized sounds constructed by Deutsch.
