EMPAC Presents PeradamArtists Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe and Sabrina Ratté collaborate on Peradam, a new audio and visual performance that intertwines voice with synthetic sound and image. Using real-time synthesis, Ratté modifies live video, while Lowe uses his voice as the source of his sonic manipulations.

Inspired by René Daumal’s novel Mount Analogue, the first work of literature to use the word peradam to describe “an object that is revealed only to those who seek it,” Lowe’s composition for the modular synthesizer focuses on the texture of a consistent equilibrium between the peak and valley of a sound wave to create a heightened experience akin to ecstatic music.

The performance begins at 8 p.m. in Studio 1—Goodman of the Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC).
