Performances I am Sitting in a Room and The Nerve Meter by James FeiVisiting from Mills College, a place that has been working with sound and its many synths for decades, the composer and sound artist James Fei presents a live performance of two works in which invisible sound waves pile on top of each other. The first performance is of Alvin Lucier's I am Sitting in a Room (1969), while the second is Fei’s own composition, The Nerve Meter (2004), in which microphones distributed in a space are connected to two frequency shifters and feedback through four speakers.
James Fei is the John and Martha Davidson Associate Professor of Electronic Arts at Mills College in Oakland. He is a composer and performer on saxophones and live electronics. Over the past twenty years, Fei has often collaborated and performed with Alvin Lucier.
This is the eighth event in our year-long season about and around the work of Seth Price.
