steady state / transient flow, a DMA project by John Eagle: CU Music

Tuesday, April 11, 2023 at 5:30pm

Olive Tjaden Hall, Olive Tjaden Gallery
815 University Ave, Ithaca, NY 14850, USA

steady state / transient flow is a sound and performance installation consisting of water-driven sound instruments created by John Eagle. The instruments, connected in one continuous water cycle, create a physical environment which determines the sonic behavior. Using pipes, tubing, valves, rocks, bottles, containers, and electronic sound components the installation creates a variable water flow and produces an electroacoustic sound environment. The dynamics of the system, along with the interventions of performers at times, create different types of flow over time. Eagle is joined by musicians Emily Call and Ford Fourqurean to perform with the installation throughout the week.

The installation is available to view in the Olive Tjaden Gallery inside Tjaden Hall, April 10-14, 8am - 5pm. Short performances will occur daily at 12:30pm and 4:30pm except Tuesday, April 11 which will include a short performance at 12:30pm with a reception from 5-7pm with refreshments. A longer performance will begin at 5:30pm during the reception.
