“Dysonomia” by Dawn of Midi (2013)

Artists,Instrument,Reference — anna rosati @ 1:20 pm

Dawn of Midi creates an entirely immersive performance that is almost entirely auditory. The slowly progressing piece has an almost hypnotic quality, and the electronic-inspired, yet fully acoustic, sounds are intriguing. The piece allows the mind to stay active while seemingly floating through a trance-like space.

Enchanted Object: “Impulse Box” By Anna Rosati and Chris Williamson (2014)

To live an impulse

I would stretch my pulse

Extent my hand

To any length

To the length that grows,

Which keeps me sick

And feeds me poison

Between doses

Of sweet relief


That which destroys

Is best left alone


Spinning the crank on Impulse Box provides a release from its incessant, cacophonous noise, but with each rotation, you charge the battery keeping it running.
