Fulcrum Point New Music Project presents an evening of installations focusing on materials, gadgets, and sensors examined through the lens of modern day composers and sound artists brought to life through performance. Using an array of microphones and sonic filtering software, each composer seeks to explore and capture the complexities of our everyday working lives through raw materials, gesture, or repetition. After each work, audience members our encouraged to come experience, experiment, and interact with each of the evenings installations.
