Three-day workshop in the Project Space from electronic musician Rafael Toral, culminating in a group performance. Toral's practice focuses on the physical performance of experimental electronic instruments to deliver music that is full of clarity and space, articulating silence and sound in a thoughtful, yet physical way. Formerly known for his drone/ ambient work with guitar and electronics, he has since collaborated with the likes of Jim O'Rourke, Evan Parker, Chris Corsano, Alvin Lucier, John Zorn, and Christian Marclay.
Electronic Music development has historically been mostly oriented to the sound source (technology) and the object (finished work). The individual is rarely the focal point. More concerned with the musician than with the instrument, the Space Program is Rafael Toral’s long-term research into human performance possibilities in Electronic Music, a fundamental reevaluation of its conception, performance and experience.
