More about Jonty Harrison:
One of the big beasts roaming the electroacoustic savannah, Jonty Harrison combines technological sophistication and psychological subtlety with insatiable hunger for sound. His hour-long Going / Places ranges far and wide, quite literally, grazing materials from around the globe: railroad horns from Ohio; bubbling geothermal pools in Iceland; calls to prayer in Istanbul; Mexican bagpipers; frogs in Borneo; market callers in Melbourne. A travelogue of bewildering discontinuities, it rushes on with the uplifting fluency of a dream. Voyages also features Espaces cachés, a series of scenes and apparitions also crafted from found sounds.
—Julian Cowley, The Wire
The Center for Digital Art and Experimental Media joins the School of Music to present an evening of new works of sonic and visual art exploring state-of-the-art technologies as instruments of poetry and artistic discovery. All DXARTS concerts feature the extraordinary surround-sound system that puts the audience in the middle of expansive new sound worlds.
