Sarah Belle Reid and Nate Wooley – Live Wires
Sep 7 • 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm$15
with special guests Nate Wooley & the Mannes brass studio
An evening of experimental music for brass and interactive electronics by trumpeter-technologist Sarah Belle Reid. This event will feature east-coast and world premieres of new works for electronically augmented trumpet and amplified trumpet duo, as well as a fanfare for brass and electronics composed in collaboration with students from the Mannes brass studio.
Sarah Belle Reid is a Los Angeles-based performer-composer, specializing in trumpet and electronics, modular synthesis, and alternate forms of graphical notation for composition and improvisation.
She is a co-developer of an electronically augmented trumpet called MIGSI that uses sensor technology to capture performance data and provide real-time extended sonic and visual control for improvisation. Reid has presented and performed with MIGSI at institutions and festivals around the world including Moogfest, Stanford University’s Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA), the International Conference of New Interfaces for Musical Expression (NIME 2015: Brisbane, Australia), New Media Art & Sound Summit (NMASS 2017: Austin, TX), University of Oregon, UT Austin, and UC Irvine’s Women in Music Technology Symposium (2016), among others, and has recently finished an extensive US/Europe/Australia tour with experimental pop artist Julia Holter playing augmented trumpet in her band.
