David Stutz - AM Turing: Automatic Elegy
Composer David Stutz weaves new chant and experimental vocal music together with electronic drones, field recordings, the sound of looms, and percussion to create a ritualized tribute to computer scientist and mathematician Alan Turing. The concert takes place amidst an installation based on artifacts from Turing's life and work, with gentle mechanical sounds, spoken word, and synthesized electronic drones, all algorithmically derived from Turing's own mathematical work. With Geoff Shilling, Perri Lynch, Beth Glosten, Jim Bennett, Erika Chang, Linda Strandberg, David Krueger, Markdavin Obenza, Josh Haberman, and Dean Moore.
