New York artists Tristan Perich and Lesley Flanigan team up this Fall for a series of unique electronic music performances across the United States. Perich's duet "Dual Synthesis" (for harpsichord and 1-bit electronics) and Flanigan's "Amplifications" (for voice and speaker electronics) explore the viscerality of electronic music. Mixing primitive sounds from their own hand-constructed instruments with the harpsichord and voice, each choreographs intersections between acoustic and electric sound.

Chris Peck will join them with his Language Resistance Drills. Language Resistance Drills is a series of participatory experiences for native and non-
native English speakers aimed at “unlearning” language, developing techniques for resisting control, and hearing the spoken word as pure/meaningless sound. The Drills are a set of evolving flexible material for use in performance and installation contexts and take the form of oral instruction, video projection, printed text, and custom software for text and voice manipulation. They have been performed in churches with audiences of 100+, at rowdy bars and clubs, and in intimate living-room salons.
