Caramoor Marks Official Opening of Grounds and Sonic Innovations Sound Art Exhibition with Free “Soundscapes” Event (June 5)

Clockwise from top left: Stone Song by Ranjit Bhatnagar; in”C” by Trimpin (at night); t(ch)ime by Taylor Deupree; Nafasi Yako Ni Ya Kijani (Your Place is Green) by Walter Kitundu; Wild Energy by Annea Lockwood and Bob Bielecki

(June 2022)—Caramoor officially opens its idyllic grounds this season with a free event on June 5 at 12pm called “Soundscapes,” featuring performances throughout the afternoon by percussive dancing duo Caleb Teicher and Nic Gareiss; beatboxer, vocal percussionist, and breath artist Dominic “Shodekeh” Talifero, who appeared at Caramoor last season as a guest artist with Sō Percussion; and a surround-sound music installation in the Spanish Courtyard called “Polyphonic Interlace” by Raquel Acevedo Klein. Thereminist Dorit Chrysler will also be on hand, performing and giving theremin workshops, in recognition of Caramoor co-founder Lucie Bigelow Rosen, an important patron and one of the earliest practitioners of the instrument. See below for more details about the “Soundscapes” performers.

The “Soundscapes” event marks the opening of Caramoor’s renowned Sonic Innovations sound art installations, with guided experiences of this season’s seven sound art pieces given by Caramoor’s new roster of teaching artists as well as all the sound artists present on site. Two new pieces by Mendi + Keith Obadike are featured this summer, as well as returning works by Trimpin, Walter Kitundu, Taylor Deupree, Annea Lockwood & Bob Bielecki, and Ranjit Bhatnagar. Conceived and curated by Chicago-based sound artist Stephan Moore, Sonic Innovations expands Caramoor’s programming with an annual exhibition of sound art from artists working with sonic materials outside the traditions of concert music. Sound art allows each artist to draw inspiration from their chosen location and its unique characteristics – acoustic, historic, architectural, or natural – and has been an integral part of Caramoor’s world-class programming since the groundbreaking exhibition In the Garden of Sonic Delights in 2014, which won Arts Westchester’s Innovation Award.

4:00pm / Performance by Caleb Teicher and Nic Gareiss

Caleb Teicher and Nic Gareiss move and sound together at the intersection of jazz and folk, social and solo dance. Though lauded for their status within their respective genres, in this new 60-minute duo collaboration Teicher and Gareiss blur boundaries and playfully transgress, exploring improvisation, song, and the idea of percussive dance. Drawing on American tap dance, jazz, swing, lindy hop, Appalachian clogging, and Irish step dance, Caleb Teicher and Nic Gareiss create a breathtaking evening of dance rooted in time and place yet uniquely their own; a festive dialogue of sound, movement, and corporeal rapport.

Dominic “Shodekeh” Talifero is groundbreaking beatboxer, vocal percussionist and breath artist who pushes the boundaries of the human voice within and outside the context of hip hop music and culture. Shodekeh performs with the globally renowned Alash, one of the world’s leading Tuvan Throat Singing ensembles, and features on their recent Smithsonian Folkways album release. He currently serves as an accompanist and composer in residence for Towson University’s Department of Dance and is the founding director of Embody, A Festival Series of the Vocal Arts.

Described as a “force to be reckoned with” by the Washington Post, Raquel Acevedo Klein is an active conductor, vocalist, composer, and instrumentalist. Raquel has performed at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Radio City Music Hall, Town Hall, BAM, St. Ann’s Warehouse, Celebrate Brooklyn!, the Guggenheim, Rockefeller Center, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, WNYC, National Sawdust, Bard Fisher Center and elsewhere.

An Austrian-born, New York-based composer, producer and singer, Dorit Chrysler is the co-founder of the NY Theremin Society and founder of the first school for theremin, Kid Cool Theremin School. She’s also one of the most visible thereminists spreading the gospel of this mysterious sounding instrument, which is basically played by massaging thin air.

Mendi + Keith Obadike: Timbre and Frequency (2022)

Frequency and Timbre are from a larger series of projects using sound, text, and, sculpture that the artists call “tonotypes.” Conceived to be separate but complimentary, like the A and B side of a record, the two works hint at an alternate way of listening, an opportunity to perceive something beyond the surface. Timbre is inspired by a passage from Toni Morrison’s novel The Bluest Eye about children overhearing and attempting to interpret the speech of adults; the sculpture’s vocabulary responds to the passage with a combination of natural, vocal, and synthesized sounds. Frequency is also inspired by African-American literature, specifically a now canonical section from Ralph Ellison’s 1952 novel, The Invisible Man, in which the protagonist claims to speak for others on a frequency not heard by all. A musician and audiophile, Ellison’s experience building audio systems may have inspired this idea, which has now been taken up in political and historical studies as “politics on the lower frequencies,” referring to unrecorded histories and untracked political discourse.

Mendi + Keith Obadike make music, art and literature. Keith received a BA in Art from North Carolina Central University and an MFA in Sound Design from Yale University. He is a professor in the College of Arts and Communication at William Paterson University and serves as a digital media editor at Obsidian. Mendi received a BA in English from Spelman College and a PhD in Literature from Duke University. After working as a Cotsen Postdoctoral Fellow at Princeton University, she became a poetry editor at Fence magazine and is currently an associate professor in the Department of Humanities and Media Studies at Pratt Institute. Mendi and Keith also serve as art advisors to the Times Square Alliance and the Vera List Center for Art and Politics.

Walter Kitundu: Nafasi Yako Ni Ya Kijani (Your Place is Green) (2017)

Nafasi Yako Ni Ya Kijani (Your Place is Green) centers on a handmade white oak rocking chair that activates speakers suspended in nearby trees, with sounds that combine composed works, field recordings, birdsong, and conversation. The piece is a meditation on absence, specifically that of the artist’s late parents. Kitundu’s mother was an artist and deeply supportive of his creative endeavors, and the bird recordings all come from the region in Tanzania where his late father grew up. Many of the birdsongs are similar to Caramoor’s resident birds, and the juxtaposition is intentional: the piece celebrates both what is left behind and what is carried forward when loved ones are no longer present. Nafasi Yako Ni Ya Kijani (Your Place is Green) was originally commissioned by Montalvo Arts Center.

Walter Kitundu creates kinetic sculptures and sonic installations, develops public works, builds (and performs on) extraordinary musical instruments, while studying and documenting the natural world. He is the inventor of a family of Phonoharps, multi-stringed instruments made from record players that rely on the turntable’s sensitivity to vibration. Kitundu has created hand-built record players driven by the wind and rain, fire and earthquakes, birds, light, and the force of ocean waves. In 2008 he received a prestigious MacArthur Fellowship in recognition of his work and creative potential.

Trimpin: in“C” (2021)

MacArthur Fellow Trimpin’s in“C” is a site-specific sound-sculpture created for Caramoor’s 75th anniversary and inspired by its acoustical environment: the birds singing, the wind in the trees, and the blissful absence of street noise. It takes the form of a 16-foot-high double-letter C located in the entry plaza, welcoming guests as they arrive and inviting them to interact through both a motion sensor and push-buttons. The push-buttons activate the structure’s chimes to play pre-composed short pieces, each one to two minutes long; in addition to Trimpin’s own music, these include works by Caramoor-commissioned composers Christopher Cerrone, Anna Clyne, Missy Mazzoli, and Nico Muhly, and as Caramoor continues to work with composers the library of pieces will grow. When in“C” is in its education mode, a MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) keyboard enables visitors of any musical ability (or even none!) to make their own chime music, as the chimes respond to the strikes on the keyboard.

Trimpin is an internationally acclaimed composer, musician, visual artist, and inventor, engaged in commissions and exhibitions at venues around the world. “My work is an ongoing exploration of the concepts of sound, vision, and movement,” he says, “experimenting with combinations that will introduce our senses of perception to a totally new experience.” A MacArthur Foundation “Genius” Award recipient and a Guggenheim Fellow, Trimpin has been commissioned by Lincoln Center, San Francisco’s Exploratorium, Merce Cunningham Dance Company, and Seattle Symphony, among others.

Ranjit Bhatnagar: Stone Song (2014)

Stone Song, a meditation on time and change that was originally hosted by the Neuberger Museum of Art of Purchase College, SUNY, and moved to Caramoor in 2015, was designed in collaboration with Hilary Martin, Akira Inman and Evan Oxland. Bhatnagar says:

“When I look at an old stone wall, I think about how the seemingly solid form has shifted and settled over time, through weathering and the erosion and compression of the soil. In order to explore this process through sound, Stone Song is laced with pressure sensors and strain gauges, and sensors for humidity, temperature, and barometric pressure. All this information feeds into a drone synthesizer, whose fundamental tones shift slowly over the months as the stones settle. Daily weather and seasonal changes will produce smaller, shorter-term changes in the stones’ song, as will the weight of visitors who stop to sit on it and listen.”

Ranjit Bhatnagar discovered sound art around age 14, listening to weird late-night programs on KPFA. He now works with interactive and sound installations, with scanner photography, and with internet-based collaborative art. Recent works have been exhibited at the Lawrence Hall of Science in Berkeley, the Parc d’aventures scientifiques in Belgium, Flux Factory in Queens, in the Artbots series at Eyebeam Atelier and the Pratt Institute in New York, and the Mermaid Show at the Williamsburg Art and Historical Center in Brooklyn.

Taylor Deupree: t(ch)ime (2017)

t(ch)ime is a site-specific sound installation on a quiet path under the trees on Caramoor’s grounds, an otherworldly addition to a familiar environment. The sole sound source of the piece is a collection of bell chimes that have been manipulated through increasing layers of digital processing, so that the sound evolves as one walks down the path. Thus, the human element – that is to say, the physical experience of hearing chimes activated by wind in natural surroundings – is combined with a gentle digital manipulation that calls attention to the acoustic properties of the materials from which the chimes are made. The effect is a small temporal oasis of fragile and reflective sound, in which hearing becomes the listener’s most heightened sense.

Taylor Deupree is an accomplished sound artist whose recordings, rich with abstract atmospherics, have appeared on numerous record labels, as well as in site-specific installations at such institutions as the ICC (Tokyo, Japan) and the Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media (Yamaguchi, Japan). His music today emphasizes a hybrid of natural sounds and technological mediation. It’s marked by a deep attention to stillness, to an almost desperate near-silence.

Annea Lockwood & Bob Bielecki: Wild Energy (2014)

Annea Lockwood and Bob Bielecki’s Wild Energy takes visitors on a fantastical tour of sounds that normally occur outside the range of human hearing, beginning with solar oscillations recorded by the SOHO spacecraft, sped up 42,000 times, and ending with ultrasound recorded from the interior of a Scots pine tree, slowed down ten times. As the creators describe the piece:

Wild Energy gives access to the inaudible – vibrations in the ultra and infra ranges emanating from sources which affect us fundamentally, but which are beyond our audio perception, many of which are creating our planet’s environment: the sun, the troposphere and ionosphere, the earth’s crust and core, the oxygen-generating trees. … A generating image for the piece is of Caramoor’s trees funneling these energies into the oxygen we breathe as we walk near them or lie under them.”

Born in New Zealand in 1939 and living in the US since 1973, Annea Lockwood is known for her explorations of the rich world of natural acoustic sounds and environments, in works ranging from sound art and installations, through text-sound and performance art to concert music. Bob Bielecki has worked in the media arts field for more than forty years, creating unique instruments and sound designs for installation and performance. He is known for his innovative use of technology to develop distinctive electronic effects and environments and is engaged in ongoing research in psychoacoustics, sound localization, and 3-D audio.
