Sound for Feeling will be a long-duration performance (ca. 2 hours) of ambient electronic music, working with fundamentals of electronic sound using subtle changes and extremes (i.e., working across a wide spectrum of frequencies, timbral shifts, and dynamic range). Rodgers' recent electronic music compositions and performances have explored sound’s capacity for catalyzing embodied feeling and a sense of healing, inspired by the work of sonic experimentalists Pauline Oliveros, Maggi Payne, and Maryanne Amacher, as well as by feminist writings, including by Sara Ahmed and Audre Lorde, which characterize feeling as at the root of political consciousness and spiritual survival. Over the last 20 years, Dr. Tara Rodgers (Analog Tara) has had a wide-ranging and prolific career as a multi-instrumentalist composer and music scholar. She is the author of Pink Noises: Women on Electronic Music and Sound and numerous articles on the history of sound and synthesizers. Her music, from analog techno to generative sound installations made with SuperCollider, has been presented around the U.S. and internationally. Her new techno EP, Fundamentals (1432 R), has been called “warm and immersive” (Resident Advisor) and “bold in the precision and subtlety it takes to mix such signals with thrill and grace and restraint” (NPR Music). Recent performances include MUTEK (Montreal), Crosstown Arts (Memphis), and Sonic Circuits (DC).

This evening's performances are part of a month-long exhibition and performance series devoted to exploring the potentialities and limitations inherent in the theme “Sound Heals All Wounds”. Throughout the month we will present artworks, performances, and discussions dealing with topics like: performance as it is constrained by health challenges; the political power of sound as it relates to feminism, refugee experiences, and social hierarchies; sound as a means of coping with loss; listening as meditative practice; and more.
Sound Installations by: Abby Wendle / Daniel O’Connor & Unthings / Jeremy Toussaint-Baptiste / Rebecca Mahay
