The Voice and the Machine

  • Center for New Music 55 Taylor Street San Francisco, CA, 94102 United States (map)

The Voice and The Machine (an Amy Foote production alongside Melinda Becker, David Katz, Sidney Chen, and Helen Newby) is a program that illuminates our subconscious relationship with technology and gives a sense of the magic it performs on us. The program moves from unadorned and unaccompanied voices, to different combinations of SATB voices, cello, live electronics and a newly invented instrument, the “Jellyphone”, which is a midi controller fashioned after a 1970s electronic memory game (Simon) with the plastic colored touch-pads replaced with flavored gelatin. The program includes a world premier by Dennis Aman, in addition to pieces by Aaron Gervais, Isaac Schankler and Laura Steenberge.
