Program Note:
Wormhole focuses on manipulation of air and adventures across electronic universes with excessive instrumental baggage. Each instrument, from the saxophone-to-bellow-foot-pedals-to-whistles-to-megaphones, produce sound via some degree of forced air, the two performers visually embedded within a junkyard of mechanisms. Instruments are amplified via standard, contact, and capsule microphones, zooming-in so that sounds can be seen and heard through the smallest of apertures, enhanced through various reverbs, and captured via freezing of acoustic moments.
—Erin Rogers (2017)
