A Sound Lecture at ArtCenter/South Florida

A Sound Lecture at ArtCenter/South FloridaSunday, January 22, 1pm – ArtCenter/South Florida, 800 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach

The Listening Gallery is affixed to the facade of ArtCenter/South Florida’s 800-810 building, and through the month of January you can experience London Fix for yourself. Join Tom Hamilton, who will discuss London Fix, a work that seeks to explore in sound the nature of a complex system defined by market fluctuations in the London Gold Exchange. Hamilton has composed and performed electronic music for over 30 years. Rather than addressing traditional modes of expression, presentation and observation, he often explores the interaction of many simultaneous layers of activity, prompting the use of “present-time listening” on the part of both performer and listener. In his talk he will also demonstrate with audio examples his concept of “present-time listening.”
