Sound artist, composer, and performer Bora Yoon premieres her newest work SPKR SPRKL (pronounced “Speaker Sparkle”) for spatial audio, interactive projections, and gestural, digital, and acoustic instruments in the EMPAC Theater. This one-woman performance and z-space poem traces the journey of a carbon atom, articulating the many cycles, scales and recombinant alchemical forms life takes. With various configurations of holographic multi-channel audio utilizing EMPAC’s Wave Field Synthesis Array, SPKR SPRKL conjures worlds of sound through auditory dream language, shadows, and kinetic manipulation. Multimedia theatrical director Ashley Tata directs this part-electronic concert, part-sound-object theater event. Yoon premiered an excerpt of this new work at TIME:SPANS contemporary music festival in August 2021 (NYC).
