The multi sound and video installation Tomorrow, Today Will Be Yesterday by Rui Almeida will be part of the Light Moves festival in Limerick, Ireland. The installation randomly pairs sound pieces from numerous composers with video clips.
Sound artists from all over the world were invited to create a sound piece and video/photos, where the sound would be presented, followed by the images. With the images presented randomly, the suggestion is to explore the way that sounds shape visuals and vice-versa.

There are a few more days to catch a showing of Peggy Guggenheim Art Addict, a really interesting documentary film. I’m biased because I wrote some music for it, but if you have any interest in the art world and artists, it is a fascinating portrait of a famous woman collector and an amazing time in history.
This sound art program will now be presented as an installation in Guimarães, Portugal.

I provided some additional music and had a blast working with the team on developing it. You can view the trailer and find screening information at their website.
Vox Novus and Arts Brookfield presented 60×60 Dance at Brookfield Place on October 23rd. Sixty one minute compositions were paired with 60 one minute dances. My short piece using only a short wave radio was paired with a dance by J.A.M. I was out of town for the performance but there is a good review of the event HERE.

The scores for White Shred and Black Shred will be exhibited as part of the AFTERSOUND: FREQUENCY, ATTACK, RETURN exhibition at Carnegie Melon University curated by Melissa Ragonaand Margaret Cox. The exhibition looks fantastic and will have an online component. Here are some words about the exhibition from the curators: Sound has entered contemporary art in profound and unexpected ways. This exhibition explores sound’s infiltration into contemporary discussions of aural and visual culture, with a particular focus on sound visualization, the physics of sound, political uses of sound, i.e. sonic warfare and DIY, as well as the resurgence of neo-metaphysical experiments with sound as a portal to new sensory experiences.
