The Wire: Han-earl Park with Paul Dunmall and Mark Sanders, with Gargantius Effect, with Franziska Schroeder, and with Catherine Sikora and Ian Smith

site update: Metis 9

The (provisional) project page for Metis 9 is now live: Metis 9 is a collection of improvisative tactics, and higher-level interactive macros for ensemble performance designed, designated and specified by Han-earl Park. Metis 9 has ‘glorious noise’ or ‘frenzy’ at its root, yet it is not so much structuring the noise as it is a […]
