Other upcoming performances:

3-14 International Pi Day: Sound Expression

In celebration of the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter—and, by extension, all things circular, and irrational—the Desautels Faculty of Music’s eXperimental Improv Ensemble (XIE) humbly presents the inaugural International Pi Day Sound Extravaganza. Performers will move amongst multiple sounding stations arranged in a large circular configuration. Instruments will include DIY electronics, such as suspended lightweight speaker cone-equipped pi(e) plates. The ensemble will perform to a moving score of sorts, specifically the projection of a live in-house cymatics display, situated at centre of the circle. The event will be an open performance-installation in which audience members will be free to come and go, and to move about throughout the show. Part noise music, part fun house, part science experiment, the XIE’s International Pi Day Sound Extravaganza promises a concert experience like no other.
