Deep Earth

With composer Matthew Burtner, and the NOBROW.collective


Matthew Burtner is an Alaskan-born composer, sound artist and technologist specializing in concert chamber music and interactive new media. His work explores ecoacoustics, embodiment, and extended polymetric and noise-based systems. He currently is an Associate Professor of Music at the University of Virginia. DEEP EARTH music uses “Ecoacoustics,” a process to embed environmental systems into musical and performance structures using new technologies.

“Deep Earth” also incorporates “mined” film images, culled from a large collection of old educational films collected by the Athens Center for Film and Video. The performance is multi-media and interdisciplinary, immersed in video and music—both of which are heavily intertwined with sophisticated and cutting edge computer technologies.

Dinner Music

Followed by a performance of Kinetic Attractions a percussion work inspired by the images and sounds of Dinner Music by composer Matthew Schreibeis.
