Event Details

In his Chicago solo debut, Mark Fell presents new tonal work from music he developed as guest composer at the historic Elektronmusikstudion EMS in Stockholm.

Fell is widely known for combining popular music styles, such as electronica and techno, with more academic approaches to computer-based composition that draw on algorithmic and mathematical systems. His recent musical practice is increasingly informed by non-European musics, evident in two linked works, Multistability and UL8, which explore a number of unfamiliar timing and tuning systems. In addition to recorded works, Fell produces installation pieces, often using multiple speaker systems. Although well versed in the use of ambisonics, his work in this area is characterized by “non-illusion based” approaches, where multiple wave shapes are spatially distributed to form complex synthetic sonic environments.

 Mark Fell (b. 1966, Rotherham, England) is a multidisciplinary artist based in Sheffield, England. After studying experimental film and video art at Sheffield City Polytechnic, he reverted to earlier interests in computational technology, music, and synthetic sound. In 1998 he initiated a series of critically acclaimed collaborative and solo record releases on labels including Mille Plateaux, Line, Editions Mego, Raster Noton, and Alku. Fell received an honorary mention in the digital music category at Prix ARS Electronica (Linz) and was shortlisted for the Quartz award for his contribution to research in digital music. He has also been involved in several academic research projects, including a 2003 project led by British Algorist Ernest Edmonds at Loughborough University in the UK which explored the philosophy of technology in relation to contemporary art.


This performance is presented in partnership with Lampo. Founded in 1997, Lampo is a non-profit organization for experimental music, sound art, and intermedia projects. Visit www.lampo.org.
