Leslie Ross (quadrophonic sound performance) + Katherine Liberovskaya (visuals) will perform a rare duet set at Share!
Leslie Ross, performer, sound-installation artist, bassoonist and instrument-maker, has been exploring and experimenting with sound for over 25 years. In both gallery and street performance settings as well as in collaboration with choreographers, she has created works for numerous constructed instruments and installations. Her compositions for performance are mostly structured scores that play with memory and recall, where the 'recalled' may be developed in predetermined various ways. Improvisation remains the central and essential element of these scores.
In the past few years she has returned her focus to a detailed exploration and understanding of bassoon multiphonics. This process of investigation has led to the creation of solo works that use an extensive system of micro-amplification: 15 microphones are placed at tone holes on the instrument and the signal from these microphones are directed to many speakers around a room. She continues to build replicas of historical bassoons in her workshop on the Lower East Side of NYC.
Katherine Liberovskaya is a video/media artist based in Montreal, Canada and New York City. Involved in experimental video since the 80s, she has produced numerous videos, video installations and performances shown around the world. Since 2001 her work mainly focuses on collaborations with composers/sound artists mainly in live video+sound performance. Among these: Phill Niblock, Al Margolis/If,Bwana, Keiko Uenishi (o.blaat), Zanana,
