Cleveland-based artist Steve Hauschildt premieres music made in part by gesture—translating movement into sound. In his first multimedia performance using Buchla Lightning as his instrument, Hauschildt will conduct “music in a three-dimensional field.” Designed by synthesizer pioneer Don Buchla, this specialized controller operates on the principles of optical triangulation. Tiny infrared transmitters, built into two handheld wands, transform data, including velocity, acceleration, and pitch, into MIDI signals that are sent directly to synthesizers and electronics, allowing Hauschildt to control the system through gesture as opposed to a traditional keyboard.
Steve Hauschildt (b. 1984, Cleveland, Ohio) is an electronic musician and founding member of the band Emeralds (2006-2013). He has performed throughout North America, Europe, and Japan and has collaborated with Daniel Lopatin of Oneohtrix Point Never, Hollywood sound designer/composer Alan Howarth and Aaron Dilloway of Wolf Eyes, among others. His discography includes Tragedy & Geometry (Kranky, 2011), Sequitur (2012) and most recently, S/H, (Editions Mego, 2013), a two-disc anthology of previously unreleased and rare works from the artist’s archives.
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.
