An artwork that exists between the categories of "performance" and "installation," this work is comprised of two parts: "Cartography Event" and "Resonance/Decay."Cartography Event maps and articulates the performance space. It is a defining acoustic event, of one-hour duration, which will take the form of a "performed installation." Resonance/Decay examines the emotional, cultural, and physical resonances that remain after a defining acoustic event has occurred. A recording of Cartography Event is re-circulated through the performance space for three days following the initial performance, undergoing digital signal processing with each iteration.

An international collaboration involving artists from 3 different countries, and a wide range of disciplines.  
Samuel Dunscombe (Australia/USA), a clarinettist, sound artist, and audio engineer, is joined by long-time collaborators cellist Judith Hamann (Australia/USA), and percussionist/audio-engineer Chris Golinski (USA).  Together, this trio will collaborate with three Japanese artists: Harada Kouhei (MaxMSP programmer, Guitar), Inoue Miyuki (vocalist and performance artist), and Ogawa Michiko (clarinettist).  This project will merge the fields of contemporary classical music, free-improvisation, and sound art installation.
