I would like to invite you to the presentation of Damaged Particulates by
sound artist and composer Ben Vida, next Oct 10-12th at LEAP. Damaged
Particulates is a highly detailed and immersive work that oscillates
between performance, installation and sculpture. Utilising 25 individual
SubPacs, a tactile audio system placed on each audience members seatback,
which directly transfers low frequencies to the body, this piece explores
the possibilities of multi sensory sonic reception and spatial qualities of
analog and digital synthesis. For further information and registration
(seats are limited), please see below.
I hope to see you there.
All the best

With his tactile installation/performance *Damaged Particulates* the
experimental musician and composer Ben Vida <http://benvida.blogspot.de/>
delves into the enveloping world of “direct bass”. Utilising a
four-channel, twin-sub sound system and 25 individual SubPacs
<http://thesubpac.com/>, a tactile audio system placed on each audience
members seatback, which directly transfers low frequencies to the body,
this highly detailed and immersive piece for electronics examines the
dimensional and spatial qualities of analog and digital synthesis.
Damaged Particulates is a work that oscillates between performance,
installation and sculpture, and is experienced as much by touch as by
hearing. Originally commissioned for Unsound Festival NYC, this new version
explores further the possibilities of multi sensory sonic reception.
Damaged Particulates is a project in partnership with Unsound Festival 2014
<http://www.unsound.pl>, Subpac, the Electronic Studio of TU, Faculty of
Audio Communication, Berlin, curated by Manuela Benetton in collaboration
