» McLean Mix /Rainforest Installation


November 5
McLean Mix /Rainforest Installation
Guerrieri Center, Wicomico Room; 9 a.m.-4 p.m. & 7-9 p.m.

This portable, self-contained audio-visual-environmental audience-interactive installation allows up to five participants at a time to instantly create original and beautiful sounds together over the sultry and ethereal rainforest drone playing in the background. As music is created, a slowly changing surrealistic multiple slide presentation of rainforests from around the world is projected. The creative stations consist of keyboards sampled with actual rainforest sounds recorded by the McLeans in the Brazilian Amazon and other rainforests around the world. Other stations include microphones with artifacts that can be used by the visitors (bird calls, etc.) and which are then digitally processed through delays, pitch-shifting, etc., and an amplified and digitally processed spoke wheel.
